Post by: Atoa on December 04, 2009, 06:54:18 AM
I want to make Gender and Birthday required for register.

Code: [Select]
<dt>
<strong>Sexo:</strong>
</dt>
<dd>
<select name="gender" id="gender" tabindex="8">
<option value="1" selected="selected">Masculino</option>
<option value="2" >Feminino</option>
</select>
</dd>

<dt>
<strong>Data de Nascimento:</strong><br />
<span class="smalltext">Ano (AAAA) - M&ecirc;s (MM) - Dia (DD)</span>
</dt>

<dd>
<input type="text" name="bday3" size="4" maxlength="4" value="1990" class="input_text" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday1" size="2" maxlength="2" value="00" class="input_text" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday2" size="2" maxlength="2" value="00" class="input_text" />

</td>
<td>
<input type="text" name="bday2" size="2" maxlength="2" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" value="" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday1" size="2" maxlength="2" tabindex="', @$context['tabindex']++, '"value="" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday3" size="4" maxlength="4" tabindex="', @$context['tabindex']++, '" value="" />
</td>
</tr>';

Use at your own risk, you didn't state what SMF version your using. So I would make a backup of register.template.php before doing this.

If you are using SMF 2.0, you can use it's built-in custom profile fields to add these two fields to registration as well as make them mandatory. No need for template/source edits.

Admin -> Core Features -> Custom Profile Fields (enable)

Then go to Admin -> Features and Options -> Custom Profile Fields and set them up.

yes, if possible, use SMF 2.0RC2, unless on a production site, as they say...

Sorry for not stating which version i'm using. It's RC2

@JBlaze
I can't make this.
For gender there's no "required" field, only the option to show on registration, but it can be left blank.
And birthday isn't even showed on the Custom Profile Fields options.

@α¢αηѕ
I will give a try. I will edit the post if it's work

Edit:
The gender box worked fine, the way you did it's look far better, thanks
But the Birthday still can be left blank.
I want it to return a error if it's not filled and refuses the registration.

Edit 2:
I solved it. Instead of an type box, i will use an select box, so even if people ignore them, an bithday value will be added.

what version of smf are you using ? because i just did it on my forum.

www.afrowall.com. Check the registration and see if thats what you want.
But i opted for just month and day . January 10. i believe people dont usual;y like to share their real year of birth {especially ladies.}
Title: Re: Making Gender and Birthday required for register
Post by: auto:blank on February 02, 2010, 11:43:42 AM
activating "Advanced Profile Fields" from core feature will make this possible.
Title: Re: Making Gender and Birthday required for register
Post by: Joker™ on February 02, 2010, 12:26:16 PM
im using RC2 ... like on ur forum www.afrowall.com

we have only one box for it .... can't we have 3 such drop down boxes ??

one containing months,other one days and last one year ...
Title: Re: Making Gender and Birthday required for register
Post by: Afro on February 02, 2010, 04:47:08 PM
You can create them on your own. on the custom profile, create a drop down for year. give it a name like Birth Year. and create drop down for it.
Title: Re: Making Gender and Birthday required for register
Post by: Joker™ on February 03, 2010, 12:16:27 AM
i've tried that already .... but try to think .... like i make a box for months containing all months .... then next box of year...

but problem comes at date ..i place count from 1 to 31...but

like January has 31 days ....

if someone chooses February then also he'll see 31 days (that will look absurd)

so thats the main problem

I tried this mod on SMF: 2.0 RC3 but the text tags below are not showing on the registration page. Does anyone have any idea what I can replace them with? My forum is in French.

Code: [Select]
      <strong>', $txt['dob'], '</strong><br />
      <span class="smalltext">', $txt['dob_year'], ' - ', $txt['dob_month'], ' - ', $txt['dob_day'], '</span>

Update:

I checked the tags in the Profile.french.php file and they are the same as the ones on the mod so I don't understand what could be wrong. ???

Code: [Select]
$txt['dob'] = 'Date de naissance';

$txt['dob_month'] = 'Mois (MM)';

$txt['dob_day'] = 'Jour (JJ)';

$txt['dob_year'] = 'Année (AAAA)';

Update 2:

I don't know if I did the right thing but I added the text strings above in Modifications.french.php and it fixed my problem. I didn't notice any bug with either the registration page or the profile page with those strings in 2 language files but if someone has a better solution, let me know.  :)

I don't see how to make it a drop down. Oh, 2.0 RC5.  I went to your site and registered Afro and didn't see either field day or month.  I just went to the profile on here and it has Birthday.....some one needs to share LOL

Ok, This works on the member registration, but not on administrator's new member registration.

As an administrator I already have a list of members I need to add and assign group member, their birthday, and maybe their avatars image.

So I need to do it from the admin page -> Members -> Register New Member.

Otherwise I have to update their profile after I add them. Which will be a lot of work. I'm looking for the fastest way to do this.

I noticed the fields smf use are : bday3 for year, bday1 for month, and bday2 for date. I tried to add these fields on the form and post it, but it doesn't work.

Any idea?

Go to
Administration Center » Core Features >> Advanced Profile Fields (enable it)



Then go to
Administration Center » Features and Options » Profile Fields >> Add new field there and adjust options as per your liking.

That will require some coding, open a new thread someone might help you there, as this thread is already marked as solved.
