Custom Fields for Registration

Last updated 11/01/2023

With Bread & Butter, you can set custom fields that your users are asked to enter after they register. For example, you may want to know their company name, phone number, company size, or industry.

After your users complete the login process, they’ll see something like the following:

  • The header and sub header text is fully configurable.
  • Set as many textbox fields, or checkbox fields as you want.
  • Any textbox or checkbox can be flagged as mandatory – users can’t proceed until they enter it.
  • Set whether a checkbox is checked by default or not.
  • Checkbox display names can include links to external pages.

Custom fields for registration can be set up quickly and easily in our WordPress plugin by following these quick steps.

Step 4

Set your first custom field:

  • Choose a type: Checkbox or Textbox. Choose textbox if you want the user to enter anything, like a name or phone number.
  • Enter a Custom Key value. This is what the value will be stored under in Bread & Butter. The value can't include spaces.
  • Enter a Display Name. This is what will appear to the user. For Checkbox fields, the display name can include HTML for a link.
  • Choose whether the field is mandatory or not. Users will not be able to proceed if they don't complete the mandatory fields.
  • For Checkbox type fields, you can also specify whether the checkbox is checked by default or not.
