Every time that you post a problem, PLEASE add the Joomla and the extension's versions and revisions (for example: Joomla 3.3.6, Contact Enhanced 3.3.5), PHP version and Server's Operating System. If you only manage only one site it is easier if you edit your profile and just add that information to your signature. Don't forget to add a detailed description of the problem. If possible, write down all steps to simulate the problem.

Before submitting a new post, PLEASE make sure you are running the latest version, test in different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome,..) and clear Joomla and browser's cache after every change you make.

Also, most questions are already answered in our FAQ and in iFAQ and Contact Enhanced documentation pages.

Edit own member profile from front-end

5 months 2 weeks ago - 5 months 2 weeks ago #24721 by 5uwebsite

I have several questions about contact enhance.

1. I want to create a menu item, that when members login and click on "user profile", which will display their own profile only.
But, I dont know what type of menu item should choose.

2. After member login, they are able to edit their own profile from front-end, but how to set it up like this.
Here are screenshots from back-end:

Please test it, here is the url:

Please let us know how to set it up at back-end.

Thank you,

Even though Contact Enhanced (CE) has some features to integrate with the Users Components, Contact Enhanced is still a Contact Manager. Therefore, some of the features you are looking for are not in Contact Enhanced, but in Joomla Users Component. See screenshot below.

If you want to have one contact for each user you can user the "User - CE Contact Creator" plugin (included in CE PRO Package), which automatically creates a contact and can keep the user profile and the equivalent contact fields in sync.

I hope it helps!
