Add new fields - missing google plus field in my 6.6 copy

to get rid of problems that my have acculated over the last updates, I built my b2e now totally new - exept the DB, _basic_conf.php and my nn.php files in the root to address the right blogs. No up to then used skins, no up to then used plugins.

Nevertheless my 6.6 Version differs obviously from the demo 6.6. version.
When trying to adapt the bootstrap, delivered in the update package, I could not find a Google Plus fild to add to my user profile. In your demo version there is one entry.

Is this a matter of DB and do I have to manually update DB in certain demands?

Thanks and regards

@mgsolipa thanks for your information. I tried it that way, but I did not get the option "Google Plus" in the drop down list. And checking the `evo_users__fielddefs` I could not find "Google Plus" neither.
Could you please export the actual `evo_users__fielddefs` including "Google Plus" from your DB and post it. So I can import the dump.

Google+ is in there. You can see it listed at 'Users | Settings | User Fields'. It's got an 'optional' setting on it, but I've not got quite far enough into it to understand how you make it appear in the drop-down.

Edit: I just realised why. In my plain vanilla installation, the Google+ field is already on the screen, hence it doesn't appear in the list. Presumably, if I removed it from the page (not yet sure how), it would re-appear in the list.

@chris_of_arabia Thanks for your reply and setting me up to fix it. There really was no entry, neither at Users|Settings|User fields, nor in the Table. But you nudged me to add a new userfield. To do it right I copied the field params from the demo. So now this is fixed.
Because I have been using b2e since a very early Version that line never came into my db tables ;-)

Thanks a lot
cheers, will

I was using a clean install of 6.5.0 upgraded to 6.6.0 on my test machine, so all the tables were fresh, complete with the demo data. I'll be curious to see how it goes as soon as I get around to migrating my production site over.
