For some reason it is now passing the information I created in the new field to the database. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With no frame of reference here, how do you expect help? ;)

You have added fields to the registration form and they are storing in the database .... what do you need help with specifically?

I have added a Last Name field to the registration page, and have modified all of the php files listed. Yet when a user enters in their Last Name it does not show that information in the database, or when I look at their account in the back end. So it seems that information is not getting passed on.

Did you include the field in the insert statement to create a new user?

Hello jtullous,

I posted a thread on how to add additional columns, feed them and show their data on webpage. Then, I saw your thread and using the method you told, my issue was resolved seamlessly ........... Thanks!

However, a new issue is to be addressed. I have created additional fields in the tables of sections, content and categories and have also added corresponding form fields and variables to handle them.

Now, when I edit an article, category or section, the data additional that I fed is not loaded in Edit mode. Also, when I make a copy of an article, the copied article does not have the additional data and the fields remain empty in the DB table.

Can you please tell me how to handle these 2 problems?

Thanks.

I have used this excellent answer for a checkbox, but if the checkbox is unticked ie Null the msg doesn't display any value. If it's ticked then it displays 1. How can I make it display 0 if the checkbox is unticked?

Hi People

I have read this post and I have done the following

1. I added the feild to the jos_users table using the code

Code: Select all

ALTER TABLE jos_users ADD address VARCHAR (100) NOt NULL ;


2. I also edited the user.php in libraries/joomla/database/table/user.php
I added a variable var $address = null; under the peice of code var $username = null;
3. I also edited the files components/com_user/views/register/tmpl/default.php
and added the peice of code:

Code: Select all

<tr>
   <td width="30%" height="40">
      <label id="addressmsg" for="address"><?php echo JText::_( 'Address' ); ?>:      </label>   </td>
     <td>
        <input type="text" name="address" id="address" size="40" value="<?php echo $this->user->get( 'address' );?>" class="inputbox required" maxlength="50" /> *     </td>
</tr>

and in components/com_user/views/user/tmpl/form.php id added the code for address feild as

Code: Select all

 
<tr>
   <td width="120">
      <label for="address">
         <?php echo JText::_( 'Address' ); ?>:
      </label>
   </td>
   <td>
      <input class="inputbox" type="text" id="address" name="address" value="<?php echo $this->user->get('address');?>" size="40" />
   </td>
   
</tr>



Now my the newly added feilds do get displayed in the registration form but when I click the register button the values are not stored in my database

I am using Joomla 1.5.6 and Xampp

I tried using UserMeta is works fine but it does not get aligned with feilds already there in the form previously. no documentation is available on the same.

So can anyone help me ??

Have you verified that table column is there? I had issues once with not telling it the AFTER command. example: ALTER TABLE jos_users ADD business VARCHAR (100) NOT NULL AFTER name;

See if that is it.

Re: My "HOW TO" extended fields in registration. No EXT needed.

Postby sallyjoomla » Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:15 am

Thank you for all the comments on this forum.. it just made my day....
Just in case someone got confused with the multiple posts.. here is the entire steps organized:
To add a combo box or any other field to the default registration from :

1- Go to the database and add the new field to the Jos_users table (set it to null as other records might not have values)

2- In the libraries\joomla\database\table\user.php after the :
var $params = null; line
add your field(s) for example:
var $phone = null;
var $country = null;

3- In the components\com_user\views\register\tmpl\default.php :
(a) Add the combo validation on top under the password validation function the entire script should be:

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
Window.onDomReady(function(){
document.formvalidator.setHandler('passverify', function (value) { return ($('password').value == value); } );
document.formvalidator.setHandler('comboverify', function (value) {
if (value==" ") { return false;
} else { return true; }
}
);
});
// -->
</script>

(b) add the additional rows based on how many fields you have added, for my example it was the phone and country... (one text field, one combo box) the html should look like this :

<tr>
<td height="40"><label id="Phonemsg" for="phone">
<?php echo JText::_( 'phone' ); ?>:</label>
</td>
<td> <input type="text" name="phone" id="phone" size="40" value="<?php echo $this->escape($this->user->get( 'phone' ));?>" class="inputbox required" maxlength="50" /><span class="error"> *</span>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td height="40"> <label id="countrymsg" for="country">
<?php echo JText::_( 'Country' ); ?>:</label>
</td>
<td>
<select style="width: 270px;" id="country" name="country" class="inputbox required validate-comboverify">
<option value="" <?php if ($country == "") echo "selected=\"selected\""; ?>>-select-</option>
<?php
// added by http://www.sallyahmed.com
$countryArray = array("England","Northern Ireland","Scotland","Wales",
"United States","Germany","Ireland","Canada","Other");

foreach($countryArray as $county) {
echo "<option value=\"" . $county . "\"" .
($county == $this->user->get( 'country' ) ? ' selected="selected"' : '') .
">" . $county . "</option>";
}
?>

</select>
<span class="error"> *</span>
</td>
</tr>

NOTE: I have diverted from the post on top, the use of id and class
should be in the select tag not the option tag....
4- save and upload the files , you can see the code working on this page: http://www.prisymid.com/register.html

Similar changes can be made in:
components\com_user\views\user\tmpl\form.php adding the additional fields and including the script for the combo validation on top...

Thank you again for the great post...

Hey... does someone know how i can add some fields that appends into one?

For example, i want the fields:

"pet name" [text box] - "type" [dropdown] - "colour" [textbox] - "eyes colour" [textbox]

And there will be at least ten clones.

And on database i want this formatting (on "pets" collumn).

pet name,type,colour,eyescolour|pet name,type,colour,eyescolour|...

So i can easily "explode" the data and print it properly

I tried to append them on both user.php and form.php but i can't figure out how to make it actuall "work".

This thread has been very helpful.

While going through this thread, I have ran through some doubts.

First my requirements, since I want to trace my referrals so I created an extra field in the Joomla Registration which is somewhat like this "Referral Username/Email". Since this is a referral, so I dont want to make this mandatory.

1. I want to validate the input entered, if this is an existing email id or username of a member. How to use the Input class validations which is used for other joomla inputs in the form.php

2. I dont want to let the users edit this once this is entered, but they can see the value in it similar to the username field. How to achieve this?

3. I want to see this from the backed, so I edited this file
\Joomla\administrator\components\com_users\views\user\tmpl\form.php

But now I want to see this field in the user manager itself without going into the individual user details. I have read from some thread that we need to edit this file,
Joomla\administrator\components\com_users\views\users\tmpl\default.php

I tried to modify the above file but I am not getting any result.

Any help in this regard is welcome.

Thanks

May i ask if there is a way to edit the detail in the "edit detail" link when user login?

<tr>
<td class="key">
<label for="school">
<?php echo JText::_( 'School' ); ?>
</label>
</td>
<td>
<input class="inputbox" type="text" name="school" id="school" size="40" value="<?php echo $this-

>user->get('school'); ?>" />
</td>
</tr>

The value did show up in the edit detail page, but i couldn't change the value as there is no textbox or anything. Please advice.

Thanks!

Hi all just a quick question.

I have followed the instruction from the original post (1st post by jtullous) Thank very much by the way it was a great help.
I added in a new field in the registration form called county and it saves to the database which is great.
My question is what do I have to do to get the new field 'county' to show up in the User Manager Back end admin page?

Any help greatly appreciated

Hi Ciaranc, I have added the field to the user manager back end admin page by modifying this file:
administrator/components/com_users/views/user/tmpl/form.php
You should add sth like this:
<input type="text" name="county" id="county" class="inputbox" size="40" value="<?php echo $this->user->get('county'); ?>" />
If you need the new field to show in the users listing in the admin panel change this file:
administrator/components/com_users/views/users/tmpl/default.php

Let me know if you need more instruction... contact me through my site
Cheers,
Sally

Hello,

great thread and usefull I´m shure.

My Question, where can I find the URL for the Link (Register) in the Loginbox.

I would use my own Form, who create easy with Fabrik (fabrik.com).

The main request was, to modify less corefiles. All works fine, without change any core file. Only the link to register would change in Corefile.

Thats OK for me. But, where can I find it ?
Mayby, any hints to do it.. my target URL is clear, a form in Joomla (as a link of a MainMenu).

Thanks in advance.
