How to modify or add a user registration field

Post by GillianBPP » Tue Oct 26, 2021 3:22 pm

I'm setting up a members' registration form for an orchestra J4 website and, rather than 'My favourite book', I would like to change the title to 'What instrument do you play?'. Failing that, disable 'My favourite book' and add a new field to the form.

Is this possible?

Edit: I have found how to change the title, via Language Overrides, but not how to add a new field.
I have looked at template overrides but I don't know the correct syntax for adding a new field.

You can use Custom Fields (Users -> Fields) or create your own profile plugin

If you need user profiles with fields visible publicly, you'd probably better off using some sort of community extension.
