Customizing the User Form

If you want to change the user form, you would first want to make a copy of this form to the Main Web. That ensures your changes stay intact after a Foswiki update.

To make a copy, follow these steps:

  • By hand:
    1. Take a copy of this topic and save it to Main.UserForm
    2. When editing your new UserForm topic, change the entries in the data form definition. You may remove all explanation around the table.
  • Automatically:

    you will return here after saving

ALERT! Note that your form changes will only be visible in a user topic after it has been saved.
ALERT! Please keep the UserRegistration form and this form definition in sync. When you update this form you need to edit/save the NewUserTemplate topic. This ensures that the fields are in the right order.

A form for new users

To use your new user form for new (registering) users, create a copy of Main.NewUserTemplate.
