I have set up a registration form with multiple custom fields. When a user registers I get a notification email but none of the custom field information is contained. I just get:

New user registration on your site ......:

Username: Ian

Email: email@domain.com   (but with the correct details) 

There are about 20 custom fields missing?  Im sure there must be a simple answer but I am yet to find it. Help please.

@ianb,

In general, user registration and account creation is a part of WordPress core. wpForo only provides a registration form. wpForo is the same WordPress registration page with different design and URL. 

However, I've already asked the add-on developers if they can provide some PHP solution for you. I'll update this topic once I get news for you.

@ianb,

No necessary for adding a custom code. Please follow the steps below: 

1. Edit the custom field in the Dashboard > Forums > Member Fields admin page

2. Copy the value of the "Field name in Form" filed, for example, field_bbc8ef9

https://www.screencast.com/t/Nu43OCktTQ

3. Navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Emails admin page

4. Find the "New User Registration Email for admins" section

5. Add the shortcode like the following one in the Message Body:

 [fields_field_bbc8ef9]

The red marked part is the value of the "Field name in Form" in the Step 2.

The same with the other custom fields.

Please note all questions related to paid addons should be asked in the gVectors.com forum. Here we only support issues related to free wpForo plugin.     

This topic will be closed soon.

@sofy  Are you able to tell me where I can find the original registration form, the one that does does send the limited reply to the admins, eg this bit:

New user registration on your site ......:

Username: Ian

Email: email@domain.com   (but with the correct details) 

If so I can edit the file myself and solve the issue.

Thanks
