XF 1.4 Extra Fields in Registration?


Well-known member

If you go to sign up there there are multiple duplicate fields there, for convenience:

Not sure why there are so many fields that need to be left blank, honestly very inconvenient. If it's not XF core, why is it?

The common thing with all these 'leave empty' fields is they all use the div class limited, while the real fields do not.

Those extra fields are part of the native XF honeypot core as an anti-SPAM measure to throw off automated bots BUT are supposed to be hidden for normal visitors..

So this would indicate an outdated style or add-on issue.

Are you able to test using the default style? If it's still an issue try disabling your addons one by one.

Most likely you have some outdated templates. Also, your style may not be compatible with the version you are running (that does happen due to template changes).

Bit late for a response, been busy with Christmas. I looked into it. Not a style issue I think. Not an add-on issue. The templates for register_form are the same in both the default style and the custom style.
