I have a number of custom member fields setup to store "yes" or "no" settings. They are used for form inputs for checkbox fields. I don't want them visible on the standard Exp Eng profile pages or on the standard Exp Eng Registration page because that would be confusing to the user and they might enter incorrect values in the fields.
In the Exp Eng documentation there is this...
Is this field visible in registration page?
When set to “yes”, the field will be available in the public member registration form.
For these fields in question I have them set to "no" for the above setting. My question is, will the above setting also "deactivate" that custom field on a Registration page, even if I make the field available in the code of the form?
I have a custom registration page that I setup in a member profile template group that uses these input fields but after someone has submitted the form and completed the member signup none of the selections that use those fields come through.
From the point of view of the person signing up they are making selections to signup for email newsletters but after they are registered none of those subscriptions choices were saved.
