When we create users into roles for child portals we need to do this programmatically.  One item that needs to be configured is custom user profile properties.  These consist of half a dozen or so fields related to the organization we'll be paying donations to, such as Pay To: , Pay To Address: , etc.

The first screen of User Profile is fine.  These are set up on portal 0 and I just inserted those into a temp table, took the values with a new portal Id and put them into dbo.ProfilePropertyDefinition.  Done deal.  These show up on Admin | Site Setttings | User Account Settings | Profile Settings in that new portal.

But ... edit one of those settings and click "Next" and the Property Name, Property Help are blank.  Here is the Portal 0 screen for the first of these properties:

On the new portal (portal 1035) these are blank but the first screen is populated for the Fundraiser Pay To Name property.

Can't find the database table easily where these 2 items above live.  The control for the first one is txtPropertyName but I'm sure that matches many such names in DNN.  Finding it via Visual Studio search won't be fun! :)

 Who knows where these 2 bastards live ... I want to pay them a visit! :)

 Thanks,

Mike

thanks, will check that out.

Never heard of a Site Group feature.  We will be making many child portals, one for each fundraiser that is set up.  I'm thinking of discrete entities.

If the Site Group feature will  work for this case, sure.

Thanks as always, Sebastian.

do well,

Mike

Site Groups will share user accounts, but still have individual pages, files roles and permissions.
Though the engine is included with DNN platform, you need Site Group Editor (https://dnnportalgroups.codeplex.com/) to get an admin UI.

sharing user accounts should do it.

I think the programmatic access I need to populate another control with this pay to , etc. info won't change.

Thanks for the help.
