How can I customize the Registration Form to ADD a specific item

  • >deleting ^Accept$ in BOTH Custom User Fields (one for the Adult Acceptance and Age Verification), and the other Custom User Field (for the Birthday Entry)

    The RegEx should have never been set in the birthday profile field. That's why i wanted to see its settings before. It explains why this field was throwing an unusual error during registration. The RegEx should only be set in the custom text profile field where you want to require the word 'Accept'. With your current settings, users can enter anything they want and you have to manually approve it. You will have less work activating and communicating with new users by just getting the RegEx to work. Only add it to your acceptance profile field.

    Also, you should still set both profile fields to be editable by "Owner during registration and Administrator" as this had probably nothing to do with the issues preventing you from submitting the registration form and prevents users from changing the fields value afterwards.

    I have included two attachments to show the changes made.

    I ran another test registration and it went thru as it should - there were NO errors showing.

    Please notice that the significant change I made this time was changing "text" TO "password".

    Do you believe this change has finally corrected every setting so that individuals registering will fill out the Registration Form as REQUIRED 

    with NO more problems?

    I don't think this change was necessary at all, but since the field is only relevant for registration, it probably doesn't matter.

    At first glance, there doesn't seem to be any other problems :thumbup:

    Hello,

    I have run several dozen "registration tests" since starting this project, and I felt the "options" were running out as to what change/s would actually make the registration process go thru without errors.

    In my latest attempt to secure a workable Registration Form which would suit my needs (just prior to my Post #22), keeping the "text" setting

    once again gave an error (in the "acceptance" part of the registration form).

    Changing "text" TO "password" produced a "test registration" that did not fail.

    At first glance, there doesn't seem to be any other problems

    Let's hope that you are right!

    Personally, I think it is now "time to move on" to other issues and additions to my forum.

    Well at least one thing good may have come from all of this:

    If anyone else of this Woltlab Forum has reason to "modify" or to make adjustments involving the Custom User Fields perhaps this Thread/Posts herewith will have proven to be of help to them.

    Again DMedia, thanks for your continued support! :)
