Adding two question to the Registration form... (4 posts)

    As my title says, I'd like to add two questions to my Registration Form that Insert to my MySQL database. I use a User Management plugin, s2member, to manage subscribers, and it's just about perfect for my needs with the exception the custom registration fields it creates produces serialized data. I'm having a hard time dealing with that data.

    (Any time I ask for help with serialized data that WordPress produces, I usually have to argue through, "Why did you write it to do that?" -- I didn't.)

    I'm sort of worried if I use a plugin, it will be a touch bloated and not work well with my s2member. I'd just like to know what hook to link into, if it exists, where I can place a couple of questions. Is it wp_register?

    I've already added the columns in the Users data table. :-)

    I would ask this to the plugin developer in the plugins section of this forum.

    Thanks...I will post it at the plugins and hacks board.

    As for s2member, in creating custom registration fields I'm sure it's bulky to add a column for custom field, maybe even unstable. I'm sure serialized data is an easy add for them. It's just another row. I just don't know how to deal with it in an efficient manner.

    I would guess the data is serialized for a reason and support for such will not be listed in a public forum
