Registration tab

The Registration tab deals with options for the registration form for new users. You can select optional fields to include in the form.

Add registration form fields to Discussion Board

You can use the ctdb_registration_form_fields filter to add fields to your registration form. Below is an example of how this is done.

In your functions.php file, or other suitable place, add the following:

function rf_ctdb_registration_form_fields( $form ) {
  $form['ctdb_user_test'] = array(
    'id' => 'ctdb_user_test',
    'label' => __( 'Test', 'wp-discussion-board' ),
    'type' => 'text',
    'class' => 'required',
    'meta_key' => 'test_meta_key'
  return $form;
add_filter( 'ctdb_registration_form_fields', 'rf_ctdb_registration_form_fields' );

You should:

  • Ensure the element key and id match.
  • Change the label to your field label
  • field should be ‘input’
  • type can be one of: ‘text’, ‘textarea’, ‘checkbox’
  • class should be ‘required’ if the field is required
  • meta_key is the name of the meta key where you’d like to field value to be saved
