  • Adding Profile Field to Registration Page

    I'm finding this place such a wealth of answers - I don't know why I didn't visit here before. Now I'm wondering if there's an easier way to do things that I've kind of hacked around.

    Is it possible to add a regular profile field to the Registration Page? Right now I require all of my users to provide a professional website in order to register and I've created a custom field for the purpose. Of course when they enter it in that field, it doesn't provide the automatic link to homepage, whcih would be nice.

    So can I add the website URL field to the registration page and make it required?

    FWIW, I'm pretty savvy and don't mind hacking in a little if that's the easiest way to do it.

    Yes, just make the profile field 'required' when you create it.

      There's a section in the admincp "User Profile Field" where you can add a new field.

        I think I have been misunderstood.

        I've done that. I've created the new profile field and made it required.

        What I want to know is can I take an *already existing* profile field (the one for website) and make it required and place it on the registration page?

          That would take a modification. You will probably need to ask over on www.vbulletin.org.

            Note: In vB 3.6 when you make a profile ffield 'required' this will also force all existing members to fill this out before they can post or search again.

            As for an already existing field, just edit it and make it required.

              (But Home Page doesn't show up as a Custom Profile Field.)

                Right, but as mentioned above Home Page doesn't show up as a Custom Profile Field - so I don't see where I can set it as required.

                I'll keep fiddling.

                  There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

                    As a workaround you can delete the default 'Home Page' profile field from registration & profile templates & add your own new custom/required one.
