I want to modify the registration form

Good morning, all.

I would like to modify the registration from to add two additional fields.  Which file do I find the form? I also will need to modify the view profile report to add the two fields. Which file holds the code for that?

I will be adding the two fields to the registration log, which will help speed up the approval process.  I found the pl file for that so I'm good to go there.

Thanks in advance for your help.

You might be able to just use Extended Profiles, that is what it is built for.  Its a whole sub-system.

You have to Enable Extended Profiles in Admin Center > Forum Controls > Members - first

Quote:
Use Extended Profiles?
If enabled, an additional item called "Profile Fields" will be shown in the sidebar to the left. There, you can add functions to the users' profiles.
Leave this unchecked if you don't use this feature to save server load!


Refresh and you will have a Admin Center Option - Profile Fields. You can make them required at registration


Good Luck
Wink

Thank you.  I will look at that and see if that works.

Would I be able to parse those fields to the registration log? What I want to be able to do is have the two fields display along with current info so that at a glance I could filter SPAM logins from the real McCoys.

Not sure if the required Extended Profiles actually show up in the 'View Profile' from the Registration Log. (It's on my ever growing todo list.) If it does, it's a great way to go. (Be aware that the ExtendedProfiles has some problems - so apply the bug fixes in http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1325100162, http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1344722954, and http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1344995266
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
