    Hi everyone.

    I run a region specific forum & would like to know it its possible to have an extra field that`s required when signing up along with the DoB?

    I use Xenforo as its so simple for a non coder to use but I suspect I`d have to do a code mod & I have no idea where to start.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers in advance.

    Can't this already be done with custom fields? Check them out under the User tab in the admin CP.

    Yes with a custom field, but I want to use the existing location one but I cant see how to specify that.

    There is a custom fields function in source, and I am pretty sure you can make them required. Check in the user tabs, you will find it on the left side menu

    I have found the custom fields but I cant choose to make a NON custom field required. i.e. the inbuilt location field. I could add one in but then we`d have 2 location options, which is silly.

    again, that works for custom fields (shown in this picture in red)

    I want to use the pre programmed location field shown in green.

    Hi Roadwart, i'm not sure if you've already had success with this ... but I've installed an Addon on my site called 'Mandatory Location'. Hope this helps.

    Thanks ALFrisbee, I`ll have a look at that over the weekend (y)
