Hello,

We have a menu option for 'Your Profile' and when we select it, we see our data in display mode. The header has the correct menu items but the background is the wrong color and we do not have the header photo. When we go into 'Edit Profile' the header is correct. We do not seem to be able to influence the display of 'Your Profile' page.

Please see attached the display and edit versions of 'Your Profile'. In config there is only one menu item for Your Profile and so we cannot see how to fix the display part when the edit is working fine.

Have you come across this before?
Thanks, Alex

Hi,
Login form, registration page, edit profile pages comes from a Joomla User component, instead profile page comes from Easy Profile.
If you go to edit profile page then Joomla redirect you on the nearest Joomla Users component page (in your case this is Login Form).
To have a correct routing you should create also a menu item of type Users->Edit User Profile, you can add this menu item in a hidden menu to not show it.

Hi,
sorry for late reply, it was night for us :D

Probably you have created a menu item of type Users->Your Profile instead menu item of type Easy Profile->User Profile

Yes you were right. We created now a menu item of type Easy Profile-> User and this has fixed the Display. However now when we choose this menu option, the display is working but when we go to Edit, it calls the menu item (Hidden -> Users -> Login Form). This works, it is just strange that the Edit page is going to Login Form or is this correct?
At least we can now control both headers so thank you for that.

Hi, Thanks for your help, it is getting clearer.
So I have created a new menu item and I can control Edit User Profile now. However once this new menu item is published, the Registration form is taking the settings from the Login Form and it does not look right - I have attached the screen shots with Edit User Profile Unpublished and Published.

If I understand correctly
Your profile Display - can be handled by menu item Easy Profile - Your Profile
Your profile Edit - handled via menu item hidden User - Edit User Profile
Login page - handled via menu item hidden User - Login Form
Sign up Registration form page - handled via menu item hidden User - Registration Form

So Easy Profile can only manage Your Profile Display and all the others are via standard Joomla Users?

In our case, the Registration form is not taking the settings from the menu item User - Registration Form.

Also, our emails to new user after manual sign up seem to have stopped working and I wonder if it is because of these menu items influencing the registration page.

Thanks! Alexandra

Sorry in my first paragraph, I meant that if the User - Edit User Profile is published, the registration form is taking the settings from Edit User Profile. If Edit User Profile is unpublished it is taking settings from Login Form. It would be better for it to take settings from registration form or login form when user- edit user profile is published.

Hi,
to manage correctly header you should create also a menu item of type Users->Registration

Probably before you had following menu items:
- Users->Login (alias like "login";)
- Users->User Profile (not Easy Profile, with alias like "profile";)
the result was that you had following urls
- Login: http://www.yourdomain.com/login
- Edit Profile: http://www.yourdomain.com/profile?layout=edit (This is same menu item of Users->User Profile)
- Registration: http://www.yourdomain.com/profile?view=registration (This is same menu item of Users->User Profile)

The right way to manage simple pages is to have following menu items
- Users->Login (alias like "login";)
- Users->Edit User Profile (alias like "edit-profile";)
- Users->Registration (alias like "registration";)
- Easy Profile->User Profile (alias like "profile";)
so you will have following links, each link have a own specific menu item
- Users->Login: http://www.yourdomain.com/login
- Users->Edit User Profile: http://www.yourdomain.com/edit-profile
- Users->Registration: http://www.yourdomain.com/registration
- Easy Profile->User Profile: http://www.yourdomain.com/profile
