The initial registration form - eg. http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=register - is very lengthy and most people decide not to join my forum because of this.

What is the best way of reducing the size of this initial form ?
I would like to allow people to register using a very basic form, which they can later adjust AFTER they've registered in the 'control panel'.

Suggestion welcome.

Thanks

Darren

You can hide all of the optional fields which are pretty much all of the fields below the login/password/e-mail/name.

How do you hide ?

You can set style="display: none" attribute for all the table rows you don't wish to show.

I'm trying to do something different, let me explain please :
If I edit register.php and add style="display: none" for the
rows I do not want to see on the registration form, it is not possible for the user to edit these rows later.

Well, you need to make it conditional on this being a new registration. Inside the template put the display: none into a conditional block based on the _uid constant.

Ex.

{IF _uid} style="display: none"{ENDIFI}
