Ask for gender during registration
« on: February 13, 2005, 02:08:48 PM »
Notice:
This tip has been in some way ported over to be a modification package located on the SMF modsite. Please note, the mod package may not do the exact same function and may not even use any of the code originally written for the tip, but should still hold the same basic functionality of the tip posted here. With the mod package for this tip, you can now let the SMF package manager make the code changes for you without you having to look at the code and edit it manually.

For documentation on using the SMF package manager, view this document.

To download the modification package, [please click here].

Is there a mod that makes people choose gender at registration? I have a couple of forums which one is for men and one for women.

You can do this the same way you do custom profile fields, using something like:

<input type="radio" name="gender" value="0" checked="checked" /> Leave it to the imagination<br />
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="1" /> Male<br />
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="2" /> Female<br />

In the Register template.

Where ever you want the option to appear :P.

For example, if you wanted it after the password, you'd find:

Code: [Select]
</tr><tr>
<td width="40%">
<b>', $txt[82], ':</b>
</td>
<td>
<input type="password" name="passwrd2" size="30" />
</td>
</tr>

Add after that:

Code: [Select]
</tr><tr>
<td width="40%">
<b>Gender:</b>
</td>
<td>
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="0" checked="checked" /> Leave it to the imagination<br />
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="1" /> Male<br />
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="2" /> Female<br />
</td>
</tr>

If you're not comfortable with HTML, I suggest you look at the tutorials on www.w3schools.com ;).

Of course you can ask questions in these topics (like you just did) just don't post new topics in this board that are questions.

thanks for this post!  i find this very useful.  it's also a good way for me to learn the PHP language, looking at how they modify things in the board, slowly and piece by piece.

Well check in the themes folder and check if it inclused a file called Register.template.php  if not just editing the one in the default theme will carry on for all other templated that do not include a custom template.

Because you can only register once every 30 minutes.  What you can do is use different browsers to test it out.

Is there a way to automatically redirect to the profile page after registering?

If I have "registration activation" enabled, could I also link the activation to the profile page?
