I'm running CiviCRM Version 5.13.5 on WordPress 5.2.2

When I set up on staging, I used CiviCRM Version 5.13.4, and the various Profile options were available, including : Used For Standalone Form or Directory Search Views [ x ] User Registration [ x ] User Account [ x ] soft_credit [ x ] CiviContribute [ x ] on_behalf

However, now that I'm setting up on live with Version 5.13.5, my only available options are: Used For Standalone Form or Directory Search Views [ x ] User Registration [ x ] User Account

Any help for why the Contribution options are missing?

Yeah it seems a little weird. It seems to get those options to show you need to first create a contribution page and check the options related to those. So:

For soft_credit, you need to have an existing contribution page with the Honoree Section Enabled checked.

For on_behalf, you need to have an existing contribution page with the Allow individuals to contribute and / or signup for membership on behalf of an organization checked.

For civicontribute to show, you need to have an existing contribution page where the profiles tab has already been set to use a profile.

But in any case they seem to be just visual indicators that indicate that you have a page that uses it.

  • Okay, so that explains a lot of things that I was trying to understand about profiles but couldn't find mentioned in the documentation. Since I was working on a live site, I didn't want to mess anything up and was proceeding with caution. But this was very helpful, and I will forge ahead! – Titania Porter Jul 25 at 18:22
