Description (last modified by planetcruiser)


  • Some countries don't have postal codes (ZIP), people are forced to enter nonsense into the field in Contact Information


  1. Edit profile
  2. Leave zip field empty
  3. Save profile
  4. Error appears

Possible solutions:

  1. Make postal code field optional
  2. Keep list of countries without official postal code and allow the postal code field to be empty for them
  3. Add "none" checkbox, which adds a "N/A" or something to the database


  • We don't have a separate field for "country" in the profile, just "location", which may contain the country - needs investigation

I would go for A.

I don't see a need to have the postal code from everyone in the database.
