I have created some extra profile fields — country and so forth — which are list fields that I have set them as required.
However, when the subscription form is displayed (in the widget or on the Newsletter dedicated page), the first choice in the drop down is always displayed as the field value — basically it’s the “default” value, rather than something like “make a choice”. So users can just click subscribe without bothering to pick anything.
Is there anyway to get rid of this “default” and force the users to actually choose something?
Also why does the profile form show an extra blank row always?
Finally, if I later change the order of the extra profile fields, will everything still work, or will it all break?
