Additional information on registration page
« on: January 18, 2019, 08:29:15 AM »
Hello folks,

I want to add one more field to be required as additional information on registration page and that is birthday date.
How can I add this field?

Thanks.  :)

You could just use the custom fields that are default on SMF instead of installing a mod

Birthday date is a core field though.

Thanks folks for your response, you are very kind.
I think the mod has finished the job.
Secondly how can I add location field which is additional information to be required too?  :-\

Thanks.  :)

That's what I thought, but apparently it's not included in registration, only in profile, and if you add it as custom field it wouldn't get picked up by calendar.

Secondly how can I add location field which is additional information to be required too?

Admin -> Core Features -> Advanced Profile Fields - enable it.  Then you'll see Admin -> Features and Options -> Profile Fields.

@Sir Osis of Liver thanks for your response too, you are very kind but I have more issues now.  :-\

True, I am not able to add fields as dates, only numeric or text field/textbox which is a lot different from birthday on the profile page.

Admin -> Core Features -> Advanced Profile Fields - enable it.  Then you'll see Admin -> Features and Options -> Profile Fields.
I tried this and Location is checked but that is not enough to be required field. It is only additional information on registration and displayed to the profile pages.

Active and Show on Registration are both checked but yet members can register without filling that field.

Show on Registration is not a checkbox, it's a dropmenu, you have to select Yes, and require entry to make it a required field.

That's a bit of an odd exception, and honestly I do not know why. But birthday is not among the options.
There is this though, Birthdate On Registration

The dropdown with "no", "yes" and "yes and require entry" - are on the page where you create a new custom field.

Thanks @Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen for your response too, but @Sir Osis of Liver was referring to "Location"setting to be required on registration.

Thanks.  :)

Mod Birthday On Registration is installed and working properly.
