Hello. How can I remove the “Retype Email” field from the registration form?
Thank you. -JFebruary 10, 2019 at 3:12 am #79171
We have an addon, that will allow you to customize the registration form:February 10, 2019 at 8:52 am #79172
Are you talking about the form that is shown when you use the “Free Members Must Confirm Email Address” feature?February 13, 2019 at 4:45 am #79173
Yes, this is with “Free Members Must Confirm Email Address” enabled…February 14, 2019 at 1:30 am #79174
That form needs to have the retype email field. This is to make sure there is no mistake in the email field (otherwise the user won’t get the special link sent to him in the inbox and he can’t proceed).February 23, 2019 at 1:15 am #79175
That logic makes sense, but I’d like to change that to simplify the form and have the fewest fields to be filled out — my customers are complaining about the extra step (I know, I know… ).
Thanks for any ideas for this.February 23, 2019 at 1:53 am #79176
…this is with “Free Members Must Confirm Email Address” enabled…
It seems to me that asking the potential member to “verify” that they correctly typed in their email address; before actually sending them an email, asking them to “verify” the email address they gave belongs to them, is part of the “must confirm email address” process.
If you unchecked the “Free Members Must Confirm Email Address” option, they won’t be asked any further questions.February 23, 2019 at 12:30 pm #79177
I understand that logic, it’s just not ideal for my use case to make them type it in twice. If there’s a way to change it, I’d sure appreciate that info. I was hoping it would be something relatively easy to tweak. This thread is the first time I’ve asked for support here. Thank you.February 24, 2019 at 3:09 am #79178
In order to get the result you are requesting, requires a custom code modification to the eMember_registration_utils.php file. The nature of the modification is such that, if you make the customization; you will forever have to redo the changes, whenever a new update is made to eMember.
We are unwilling to just post the code modification to this forum; because if you were an experienced programmer, you could’ve figured it out for yourself. However, we will give you “a big hint,” so that you can hire a programmer of your own choosing; who knows what they are doing, to make the change for you. Here is the hint:

Thanks guys, that info is helpful. I don’t write code for a living but with that hint and knowing where to look I may be able to figure it out. I understand changes there would be overwritten by future updates and I appreciate that warning. You guys are great, I’m really glad to have purchased eMember and eStore.
