I have a Select custom member field, how do I display this in the Freemember registration form?

it is called "school", the below code does not seem to work, maybe I am doing it wrong?


EE 2.7

                    {exp:freemember:register return="{segment_1}/{segment_2}/register-success" error_handling="inline" error_delimiters='<span class="error">|</span>'}

                    <p class="form-element">
                        <label for="username">Username</label>
                        <input type="text" name="username" value="" class="txtbox" /><br />

                    <p class="form-element">
                        <label for="email">Email Address</label>
                        <input type="email" name="email" value="" class="txtbox" /><br />

                    <p class="form-element">
                        <label for="school">School</label>

                    <p class="form-element">
                        <label for="password">Password</label>
                        <input type="password" name="password" value="" class="txtbox" /><br />

                    <p class="form-element">
                        <label for="password_confirm">Confirm Password</label>
                        <input type="password" name="password_confirm" value="" class="txtbox" /><br />

                    {if captcha}
                    <p class="form-element">
                        <label for="captcha" style="margin-bottom:5px;">Please enter the following characters into the box below:</label>
                        <br />{captcha}<br />
                        <input type="text" name="captcha" value="" class="txtbox" /><br />

                        <input type="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />

  • From memory that should work. What does it output? Does it display anything at all? – Adrian Macneil Oct 11 '13 at 18:56
  • It displays the tag as plain text only – Mark Oct 12 '13 at 19:22
  • Really stuck on this, not sure where to go from here. – Mark Oct 16 '13 at 16:36
  • Just did some testing and custom member fields are working fine for me. Are you running the latest version of Freemember? Are you sure your custom field names are correct? – Adrian Macneil Oct 19 '13 at 19:35

Your code works fine for me, so here are some things to check:

  • Make sure you running the latest version of FreeMember
  • Make sure you spelled the custom field correctly. Do you have a prefix that you use for the custom member fields or anything?

I couldn't get this to work unfortunately.

I ended up using a custom member field name in a select drop down populated by categories, so the client could update and change the list options. Thanks
