Custom Member Fields

Control Panel Location: Members ‣ Member Fields

The Member Fields feature permits you to add fields to the member registration form and/or member profile and My Account areas.

Permission Restrictions

  • Access settings: Members



This will take you to Member Settings.

Search Members

This will search members by id, username, screen name, and email, respecting the current filters. This will render the Member Manager.

Create new

This will take you to the member field’s create form.


The reorder icon in the left-most column of the table allows you to reorder the fields by dragging and dropping the rows.


The icons in the manage column perform actions on the member in its row.


This will take you to the member group’s edit form.

Bulk Actions

The checkbox in the right-most column of the table selects a button for a bulk action. When at least one checkbox is checked the bulk action dropdown menu and submit button will be made available in the lower righthand corner of the table.


The selected member fields will be removed. Removing a member field will cause a confirmation modal to appear that will summarize the action.
