Custom fields in registration
« on: June 02, 2018, 04:23:19 AM »
Is there such a mod in existence at the moment ?
It would be ideal for clubs etc that only wish their own members to be able to register

2.x versions provide options for this by default.

Thanks for the reply.
Basically what I was looking for was a couple of extra fields where I could put a code number or question and answer only club members would know,so as to stop others being able to register.
It's been a couple of years since I last ran a site ,so I wasn't aware this was now a possibility. I will check it out

once again thanks
