#4278 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Feature request - profile fields on registration form

Reported by: enderandrew's profile enderandrew Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.2
Component: Core Keywords: trac-tidy-2018
Cc: rachel@…


Problem: Lengthy registration forms dissuade people from signing up. However, moving extended profile fields to another group somewhat hides them. I've had users tell me they can't find where the profile fields are because they have to click to expose the additional profile field group when editing their profile. This isn't as intuitive as it could be.

Possible solutions: 1. Don't add the extended profile fields to the registration form so you don't have to move them to another group.

  1. Add control over each field to show it on the registration form or not.
  2. Show all groups when editing the profile.

I like suggestion 2 myself, though it'll take quite a bit of work to get to that point (especially for backward compatibility). Patches welcome!

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
