This happens because the template topic for new users (TWiki.NewUserTemplate) is hardwired in Register.pm, and it contains the fields for the UserForm.

The workaround to this issue is to edit NewUserTemplate after UserForm is modified, then do any minor modification (like adding a blank space) and save it. This will update the attached form.

The three topics regarding registration (TWikiRegistration, UserForm and NewUserTemplate) should always be tightly synchronized and simultaneously updated, I believe this is per spec (although it is not mentioned very clearly in the doc).

I am not sure what your intention of the bug report is? Doc update?

Anyway, setting this as Enhancement / Waiting for feedback.

I created the bug report because a user reported it in IRC as a "bug".

The problem is that NewUserTemplate has already "attached" the UserForm. That's why old metadata appears until the topic is saved again.

I think that the "final" solution involves removing the form from the template and changing the registration code to attach the template at runtime.

-- RA

I am the user from IRC that reported it as a "bug". My problem began with me wanting to change some of the default fields that registration asks for. To do this, I viewed a user entry and saw a link to UserForm

So I went to UserForm and changed the fields that I wanted...well when a user went to register after I made the changes, they had all the new fields I made but also the old ones I had removed. So I was confused on why this was occuring until Rafael informed me of the other places it needs to be changed at (TWikiRegistration and NewUserTemplate)

So maybe either a rework of the registration system (just have 1 ultimate form to change/update instead of 3) OR in the bottom of UserForm, in the "Related Topics" section, you could include links to the 2 other places that need to be changed (TWikiRegistration and NewUserTemplate)

I searched for "registration" and "registration fields" in the docs but I could not find anything on what to do if you want to change the registration fields. So maybe just a documentation update is all thats needed.

Getting doc in place and up to date would be a great start. I'll be happy to review and commit your suggestion.

-- SP

I think someone already took care of this issue with a patch to Register.pm. The person I think that did this is "bitca" from irc - freenode - #twiki. Pretty sure a modification was made to Register.pm to fix the issue. If not I can probably generate some documentation for it but I am not officially registered with develop/bug system (if there is a prcoess to do this).

-- AT

If it should go in 4.0.2 the bug report pointing to the SVN commits for the patch should be marked as such.

Closing this.

-- SP

The concept of fields appearing on the TWikiRegistration page is flawed. The NewUserForm should be authoritative.

-- MC

Summary If some fields are removed from UserForm, they as shown in the new user topic anyway.
