Hi,

Can anyone tell me how can I force users to fill in all the profile fields when they register, i.e. including AIM, Yahoo messenger etc?

I will use the language folder to change the fields to something more meaningful so requiring users to fill them in when they register will not be a big problem for users.

is there a simple way to do this?

Thanks a lot!

I believe installing e.g. the SmartProfile module will help you achieve that. I'm sure that there are some others modules out there as well.

Edit: In newer versions of Xoops, this functionality is included. In the admin section, go to the User Profile menu and select the Fields section. In there, click edit for the field you want to make mandatory and you will find the "Required" option on the bottom half of the page.

thanks a lot Mazarin!

That's given me the kick I needed to make the upgrade from 2.0.18. Fingers crossed!!!

GL Cozzie!

hacamat: I think that would require a hack to the register page. If you want to do it quick and dirty, then maybe you could just create the two dependent fields in User Profile and then user the hack, i.e. code on the page, to do the connection between the two. Google for dependent drop down and you'll find a great number of tutorials for this using javascript, php, ajax and what not.

Hi Mazarin

Sorry, I can't find the place you are talking about in the admin of 2.3.3 where I can select the fields, can you guide me further?

In the "Admin area", you should have a module that says "User Profile". Open the "Fields" settings for that and then choose to edit the field of your choice.

Got it! thanks a lot

Do you know if there is a way I can add the 'upload an avatar' field to the registration process?

I want to encourage users to upload their own avatar and think the registration stage is the best place.

thanks again!

I don't think it can be added as a field, but my guess is you would have to do it through a hack.

Another way of doing it could be a small hack redirecting the user to the avatar upload page after the registration has taken place (provided there's no need for confirming/activating the registration).
