Add a multi-select box to both the registration form and the edit account page?

Is it possible to add a multi-select box to both the registration form and the edit account page?

All I want is for the member (blog owners) to select the genres of books that they have on their site, so a multi-select would do the job.

    Hi @business Web

    If you are using Buddypress, you could setup custom fields quite easily. otherwise you may need to do a bit of custom coding.

    If you are happy to do some custom work

    Have a look at the following file:

    membershipincludes/addons/simple.invitecodes.php

    That addon adds a field to the membership registration form and processes it’s input. You could take that addon as a starting point and use it to create a new one to add the genres field and then process it to add it to the users profile when it’s created.

    i don’t think it would take all that much work, but if you are not upto coding, you could possibly find someone who could do it over at the jobs section on wpmu.org

    hope this helps.

    thanks
