Title: Get more information from users when registering?
Post by: yasmikash on December 22, 2017, 02:42:26 AM
I want to know that if there are any possible ways to get additional information (additional rows to enter information) like payment email, bitcoin address, ect. from users when they're registering on my forum? And the information collected on the registration page should be able to change by forum admins, when it's needed. Thank you.  :)

You can use the custom profile fields in 2.0 to collect additional information.

What are you trying to install, that sounds like a package manager error. An update or a mod give you that?

Because having the link tells you something you can't ask? I'm confused. Sorry.

I'm sorry if I might not have described the problem exactly. I downloaded the mod 'Custom Profile' and tried to install it on my forum. But I'm getting an error called "Error in Package Installation" (please see the image below) that leads me suspicious to continue the installation. My forum is :

You can use the custom profile fields in 2.0 to collect additional information.

Admin -> Core Features -> Advanced Profile Fields.  Once it's activated, you'll see it in Admin -> Features and Options -> Profile Fields.

Thank you. Now I can use additional information on my user registration page.
