Hi,

I need change some fields from the register form. I would like add some fields specifics of my job.

Also I would like to know if it's possible list all the users with same location (for exemple New York), or with the same ocupation.

anybody who can help me?


thanks and regards

Yes it is possible.
You need to modify register.tmpl to add the HTML for the fields. Modify register.php.t to make it accept the field and last but not least modify users_reg.inc.t to insert/update/fetch data from users table.

This is clear.

What is the best way to update the mysql schema?
I see the /sql directory with the CREATE.
Is this only invoked by install.php?
Should I just add the new fields to the database manually, or is there a better way to invoke the sql script? I guess I could update it then load it into mysql

I've just been exploring FUDforum for about a week now, after checking out phpBB (and trying fully modded). I preferred the look of FUDforum, the email list integration and the user manual. I'm a fairly experienced linux admin and a longtime programmer (mostly embedded C) and I'm learning php now. I'm pretty impressed with what I've seen! I agree with one poster that a few block comments would be helpful.

Rc2 blew up on me last Friday (not sure why) and I had to reinstall, but Rc3 was out so I loaded it. So far, so good, and I have been able to successfully modify some templates.

nice work! I'm looking forward to putting this to work Real Soon Now as a forum for Ottawa's new city Cycling Plan project.

The sql directory is not really used, I mean it is used, but not in a way you can use it. The only time it is used in 'user space' is when you run the data dump. Ideally you should apply your changes to the MySQL databases manually and modify the appropriate .tbl files to reflect the changes in the table structure.
