User:Profile_Form Tag

Overview

User tags are designed for sites that have areas or features behind a login. The user:profile_form tag helps you build a user profile edit form for existing users based on your user Blueprint.

The tag will render the opening and closing <form> HTML elements for you.

Example

A basic profile edit form, with validation errors.

{{ user:profile_form }}
 
{{ if errors }}
<div class="bg-red-300 text-white p-2">
{{ errors }}
{{ value }}<br>
{{ /errors }}
</div>
{{ /if }}
 
{{ if success }}
<div class="bg-green-300 text-white p-2">
{{ success }}<br>
</div>
{{ /if }}
 
<label>Email</label>
<input type="email" name="email" value="{{ old:email }}" />
 
<label>Bio</label>
<textarea name="bio">{{ old:bio }}</textarea>
 
<label>Job Title</label>
<input type="text" name="title" value="{{ old:title }}" />
 
<button type="submit">Save</button>
 
{{ /user:profile_form }}

Blueprints Fields

You may add edit fields for any that exist in the user.yaml blueprint.

Any submitted data that does not exist in the blueprint will be completely ignored.

Additional fields will be validated as per your blueprint validate rules.

Dynamic Rendering

Instead of hardcoding individual fields, you may loop through the fields array to render fields more dynamically.

{{ fields }}
<div class="p-2">
<label>{{ display }}</label>
<div class="p-1">{{ field }}</div>
{{ if error }}
<p class="text-gray-500">{{ error }}</p>
{{ /if }}
</div>
{{ /fields }}

Each item in the fields array contains type, display and handle, which are configurable from the user blueprint.

You will also find the field's old input on unsuccessful submission, as well as an error message when relevant.

Finally, the field value contains a pre-rendered form input. Using this will intelligently render inputs as inputs, textareas as textareas, and snozzberries as snozzberries. You can customize these pre-rendered templates by running php artisan vendor:publish --tag=statamic-forms, which will expose editable templates in your views/vendor/statamic/forms/fields folder.
