    I’m trying to set up a second signup form, and while I’m no stranger to HTML, CSS, and PHP, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to change the group of fields being used in the custom template I’ve made. It either shows all the main fields or no fields at all.

    Any help on getting this set up would be great.

    Unrelated, but do you have an estimate on when the version with simple file upload will be available?

    Hi Danny,

    You have two options for setting the fields to show in the signup form. The easiest (because it does not require a custom template) is to simply define which fields you want shown by listing them in the shortcode…like this:

    [pdb_signup fields="first_name,last_name,city,state,country"]

    Doing this by interacting with the groups in a template is more complicated, and probably not necessary. If you do want to use the groups for this, you’d probably have to define two separate sets of fields and assign each set to it’s own group.

    I’ve got a beta test going for the next release. If you’re interested in participating, read the notice above. Otherwise, I expect to release it in a week or so.


    Thanks for the reply, I had tried this already and I was getting a blank box with the “Sign Up” button. I had forgotten to choose “Signup” in the checkboxes for the new fields. The problems were all my own.

    Great plugin, by the way. I’m going to look into the beta test.

    Thanks again!
