What this do: This changes the registration a little. It will add (*) before required fields of registration. Its simple to change the color mods I've chosen for this. Just edit the <font color="#"> part of the mod to change colors.

To Simple: Yes it is indeed, however it is my first template mod, so i'm kinda proud. Don't ruin it for me. Thats pretty much it... :smoke:

Sometimes the simplest edits are the best. :)

You may want to check into using span tags with a css class. It may make implementation and changes a little easier.

The only problem I came apon when doing this mod, was I can't seem to get it to apply the * to custom made profile options that are required when registering. It adds the * above it. :(

If only I could fix that, I would be set. :) Thanks for all the support on the mod. Hope people find it to be useful, and install it. The first day I registered here, I was thinking of what I could make, and then a guy was requesting something like this be done. So I started playing around with it on my test forum.

My self-esteem is up now. :) I look at some of yalls profiles it makes mine look puny. I have some ideas for a new admin hack but no clue on how to go about making it. I think he would be a really good idea if I could just figure out how to do it.

I was the one who was originally after this mod (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=107870) but this is only one part of my mod request.

At the moment the standard vBulletin registration page isn't laid out very logically... It has all the 'required' fields at the top followed by the 'optional' fields lower down the page.

The user registration page on most websites is laid out in a more orderly and logical way and 'required' fields are normally indicated with an asterisk (*).

On my forum I have seperate fields for city (free text and required), state (drop down list and optional) and country (drop down list and required). The state field is optional as I don't have the state of every country in the world listed - only USA, Canada and UK. I have all this information in seperate fields as it enables me to compile detailed statistics on where my registered users are from.

City, state, country is a logical order but because the state field is optional (not every country in the world is divided in to different states) this field is relegated down the page to the 'optional' fields on the registration form.

I'd like to see the registration page formatted into a more logical order with 'required' fields indicated with an asterisk (*) which Lineman28645 has done but the logical ordering still needs to be worked on.
