Scenario: Jomla 3.3 + CB 2.3 + CB Profile PRO + JFBConnect

Target: Free user registration to Group A or/and group B also in two different timeframe.

  • Group A (simple Joomla registration): Login with FB account (required field: username + email + FBid)
  • GROUP B: (required field: field3+field4+field5...)

To switch from group A to group B the user has to fill all required field.


  • If I set all fields as required they are required also in the basic registration form (Group A)
  • If I don't set the Group B filed as required, users can switch to Group B witout filling all fields.

Any tips? thx

  • How are you currently setting the fields as required?

  • No,they aren't set as required. If I set as required then also group A users have to fill all fields to register. Nov 24, 2014 at 17:38
  • I am not aware of CB, but Joom profile has this functionality. But it doesn't have Facebook Connect sort of.

Looks like the solution is CB autogroup + CB Conditional

I used CB Autogrup to lets users choose their preferred Group, and CB Conditional to set specific required fields based on the users choise.


1) Create in Joompa Group: GroupA and GroupB

2) create in CB fields fieldprofile -> Group A, Group B

Use CB Autogrup to associate joomla Group and fieldprofile value

Use CB conditional to set the rules based on the fieldprofile value

es.: if fieldprofile value NOT GroupB than hide all GroupB related fields else shows as required all GroupB related fields.

Read the plugin components docs for more info
