Hello to all Forum members ;

I'm new to miniBB and I have just installed it on my server. I want to make few fields from User Registration Form as "Necessary" fields.

There are fields like ocupation and location which are , by default , not the necessary fields. How can make these fields necessary (must fill-in) ?? Where should I make these changes ?

Waiting for your reply ...

I think, the best and flexible way is to make the checking by JavaScript.

For example, open templates/user_dataform.html for editing and edit the following:

1) Between <script></script> code, before //--> insert new JavaScript function:

function checkFields(){
var error=false;
if(document.forms['regform'].from.value=='') error=true;
else if(document.forms['regform'].occupation.value=='') error=true;
if(error) alert ('Please, fill in all necessary fields.');
else document.forms['regform'].submit();

2) Replace input type=submit in a form by input type=button onClick="JavaScript:checkFields();"
