how to change register form?

  • Is it possible to create a 2 step signup?

    Example

    – First only username , email , password and name is asked.

    – Second relatting to location , gender , age etc..

    Would be great if the user is redirected from the activation email they receive to a page that ask for additional info before activation is 100% complete. Or any other possible way…

    Don’t know if it is possible?

  • I think you’d have to modify the registration template, and add some handling code for this second step. If you know PHP, I can take a look and point you in the right direction

    Okay, this is what I did to get a register page I needed. It wasn’t a two step set up, but it got me all the information I needed in one menu.

    I don’t use the Buddy Press register page, but rather a plugin called Login Logout. This always directs to the Wordpres login page or register page if they hit join on my site. I have also hidden the admin bar to logged out users.

    I then place the Login Logout widget in a sidebar space so anyone can use it from the front page.

    I used CIMY Extra Fields plugin to add the fields to the register page. I used Custom Login to design my login page.

    You don’t want BuddyPress to handle things like age, location, unless you want to publicize that information to any other buddypress user.
