Removing Fields from User Registration

Removing Fields from User Registration


I am wondering if I can remove fields from the users_registration.php without breaking anything needed in the checkout process. My client only sells digital products and therefore doesn't want or need to collect address information.

In the Power Store admin section, go to the design tab and select to use the simple registration page.

this will only require the email address and password for registration.

the gateway will still require address information during checkout though, this is a gateway requirement and cant be turned off.

Removing other fields

I also would like to modify the registration to not include some fields, but reducing to the simple registration is not viable as I want to use more than this. Ideally, I would like to simplify what is presented to the customer by taking out anything not required in the UK:

Remove the Fax field
Remove the County drop-down box and field [the county is not required by the UK post office and does not form part of a postal address]
Change the tab name for Postal Code to (the UK correct) Postcode

Is there a viable way of doing this?

It can be done, but we do not offer support for making this type of modification to power store.

you would need to edit the webassist/plugins/registration/full/registration.php page to remove any unwanted fields, and also remove the validation for those fields.
