I'm interested on buying your component, but need to know some features first.

So basically I want a field that auto generated based on other field, example:
We have a "User event number" field that we want the value (string) based on combining joomla user id and register date and etc...

is that possible with Easy profile?

sorry but Easy Profile does not do this natively, anyway you can build a simple plugin that do this, you can also try it in free version, please follow these steps:
- Download, Install and Enable Skeleton Plugin (you will find it at
- Open file /plugins/jsn/skeleton/skeleton.php
- remove samples functions: triggerFieldAvatarUpdate, triggerProfileUpdate
- add function like this:
public function triggerProfileUpdate($user,&$data,$changed,$isNew){ 
$user_id = $user->id ;
$user_date = $user->registerDate ;
$data['ALIAS_OF_CUSTOM_FIELD'] = md5( $user_id . $user_date ) ;
This code will be triggered when user update/register own profile.
This code will store in field with alias "ALIAS_OF_CUSTOM_FIELD" a simple hash of value that depends from ID and Registration Date of the user.

NOTE: This code is not tested and not supported, this is only for example purpose. You need to have a minimum of PHP knowledges

That's awesome... Im gonna try it tonight when i got home.

One last question: Can we disabled editing of some fields? So, user can only edit their profile on selected field only?

Thank you
