Hello! YAF is doing well, but I'd like to alter one thing. When a client registers, I'd like to add fields such as Company Name and Company Phone.

I'm not great with databases at all. Could someone explain to me how to do this? Hopefully, it's not too intricate and relatively simple ... lol, since I'm not an experienced programmer.

So upon registering, I'd like to add fields for Company Name and Company Phone (and perhaps 1 more field).

Any guidance in this regard would be greatly appreciated!

Jason,

You might want to consider creating a parent application consisting simply of your custom registration form and then integrate YAF via ASPNET Membership. Lots of info on that here on the forums and elsewhere.

I'd suggest separating the custom user data in a separate SQL table, say, yaf_user_custom, with userID as key field. Separating your registration this way also gives you greater freedom in the future if you want to generate web-based reports on your unique user properties.

Just one option...

Good luck,
Dave

Thank you for that information, Dave. Frankly, I'm not knowledgeable enough to really do any of that. I did purchase a Mysql 2008 r2 database from my host, however.

I just figured it'd be somewhat easy to put an extra field in there for a Company Name, or something of that nature, but if it's too much of a hassle, that's okay, too.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond to my question!
