From the beginning we’ve worked hard to keep Review App simple but in some cases we made things a little too simple. For example: in order to make it easy for users to sign up for an account on a Review App site we kept the questions to the bare minimum – email address and user name. Many of you, however, wanted to find out more about new members upon sign up and we support your right to choose (though our own sites still keep it old school).
To add a user data field to your new member sign up form, simply mark “yes” to the question, “Ask on sign up?” and it will be a part of the sign up process. We recommend you keep the fields asked on sign up to a minimum – maybe add short questions like gender and zip code – to keep the new member registrations flowing. Remember, even if you’re offering free accounts no one wants to fill out a long form just to access your site features!
