But when i login as community user 4 input fields do not show up only the label is visible. This 4 fields which are not visible are lookup fields where the controlling field being account.

This appears to be issue with Field Level Security. Provide appropriate FLS at community User's profile. To set FLS follow

  1. Setup->Manage Users->Profiles
  2. Open Community User's Profile/Profiles.
  3. Go To Field Level Security Section .
  4. Click view against the object to which your fields belong.
  5. click Edit to modify FLS as per your requirements.
  • Hi Mukesh, Thanks for the help. I did change the fls and now i am able to see some fields and some fields are still readonly even after giving the edit permission on fls.
