Title: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: kerux4 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 (http://mods.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=407). 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 (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=49.0).

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 in there do I put this?
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: [Unknown] on February 14, 2005, 07:02:58 PM
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.

Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: JayBachatero on November 21, 2005, 07:37:28 PM
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?

Little question about this lil add-on :

Can all this gender registration be saved on the database ? just to see a ratio of male vs female .
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: JayBachatero on July 25, 2006, 10:14:40 PM
All that info is stored in the db.

Edit: Dont worry got it fixed, the code in my register file was just different to the one he explained.
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: Senkusha on August 04, 2006, 08:55:17 AM
Is there a way to REQUIRE the gender (and age) to be filled in upon Registration.  I've added the code, but some members are still bypassing it.
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: Joshsux on August 05, 2006, 11:09:04 PM
they prolly pick the first one thats default which is "dont wanna tell" or some crap i edited the code and removed that, most of the members do it now. and you dont want to FORCE people to do anything thats the first line to screw up a website, i don't even make people require to check there emails on my site.

It just makes it easier to tell who is male from female ... as they have to select it on sign up ..

I just installed the mod and it is certainly progress that they see the gender question.  Is there a way however that will force them to pick male or female and not have a 3rd option?

Need help on this too... someone?
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: Bigguy on October 25, 2006, 12:28:01 PM
I would think if you removed this line that it would take the top option (N/A) out of the mix:

Code: [Select]
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="0" checked="checked" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" /> ', $txt[470], '<br />
I have just done this and if you remove that line it only leaves the male/female options.

can I use this mod for 1.1 latest smf?
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: 2Ntense on September 24, 2007, 01:23:58 PM
I just tested it on 1.1.3, so I'd say that's a "yes"
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: Xarcell on September 27, 2007, 08:09:19 AM
On the package created from this, can I make a recommendation.

Replace "Gender" with the language string "', $txt[231], ':".

Post by: jannah on December 17, 2007, 09:16:48 PM
I just installed this mod and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. When I went back and looked at it manually everything was fine as well. Then I realized that my SMF was using Modifications.english-utf8.php instead of Modifications.english.php D'OH!!  I copied the regular one over to utf and it works... but why is it defaulting to the utf one where can i change that?

Thanx.
Jannah
Title: Re: Ask for gender during registration
Post by: redone on December 17, 2007, 09:23:08 PM
All this mod does is change the register.template.php. Converting to utf is something you must do to your board.

To resolve this you need a backup of your database prior to converting to utf.

<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>

Lets say i dont want a leave to imagination option, and i remove that line of code .. do i then have to change the value for male and female .. or they can remain on 1 & 2 ???

eg..
Code: [Select]
                     <input type="radio" name="gender" value="1" /> Male<br />
                     <input type="radio" name="gender" value="2" /> Female<br />

or
Code: [Select]
                     <input type="radio" name="gender" value="0" /> Male<br />
                     <input type="radio" name="gender" value="1" /> Female<br />

or
Code: [Select]
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="0" checked="checked" /> Male<br />
                     <input type="radio" name="gender" value="1" /> Female<br />
                    

Which is the better code to use  :-\
