I am wondering if there is a module which would enable asking users why they want to join a site - i have a very small forum and want to avoid spam bots.
I am using captcha and require administrative approval for a new user but I would like to have a field which asks "why would you like to join this forum?" and have that display somewhere that I can see it before enabling the account. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks, Amy


Go to admin/config/people/accounts/fields and add the field. In field settings enable "Display on user registration form." - you can hide it everywhere else if is only for your eyes.

  • Thanks, I tried to follow your advice but am not able to- does this require a specific module? – user34458 Jul 28 '14 at 18:59
  • nope, this works right out of the box :-) You do use Drupal 7, right? – Morten Jul 29 '14 at 13:11
  • You have to go to the Configuration tab. Then choose People. Then choose settings. On the the following page there is a "Manage Fields" tab, click this and create your fields. – Morten Jul 29 '14 at 13:15
