I have added custom fields into the default registration page since it does not offer a user to create an account and add Company, Phone number, Website, etc. from the very first page. I have been following the guide here I have it adding the info into the database but I would like to add some of the info into the "customer_address_entity_varchar" table like the Phone, Company, Fax and the Address fields. I believe I would set this in AccountController.php since I am not creating a module.

This is the current code that the tutorial is telling me to put in I modified the parameter name to Company instead of Occupation.

 if($this->getRequest()->getParam('company')) {
     $customer->setCompany($this->getRequest()->getParam('company'));
 }

It will not add the field inside of the "customer_address_entity_varchar" it will add it to "customer_entity_varchar". I am sure it is just a simple change.

For clarification in Magento’s default installation when you register a new account it will ask you for “First and last name, Email, Password” After you login to your account it will let you add the default address for billing and shipping along with a phone number and other linformation. The Fax, Phone, City, State, Zip, Country are added to the “customer_address_entity_varchar” table after you add these under “My Account” I would like values of the custom fields I have added following the below tutorial to be added to the “customer_address_entity_varchar” table during registration. How do I do this?

  • Could you add your attribute code. – David Manners Jan 12 '14 at 6:30

As part of your install script if you add something like the following this should add the entires to the customer address tables.

$installer->addAttribute('customer_address', 'YOUR_ATTRIBUTE_CODE', array(
    'type'     => 'varchar',
    'input'    => 'text',
    'label'    => 'Your Attribute',
));

Here the 'customer_address' entity type is used and in combination the type 'varchar' this will make the attribute use the table customer_address_entity_varchar.

If you want to use these attributes on some forms in Magento you will then also need to set them as used on the forms via the install script.

$addressDefaultUsedInForms = array(
    'adminhtml_customer_address',
    'customer_register_address',
    'customer_address_edit'
);
// Add each attribute to the default forms
$installer->addAttributesToForm(array('YOUR_ATTRIBUTE_CODE', $addressDefaultUsedInForms, 'customer_address');

Once you have the address attributes created than you would need to use the following code to set and show the attributes in the template.

$customer->getAddress()->getYOURATTRIBUTECODE();
$customer->getAddress()->setYOURATTRIBUTECODE('value');
  • Thanks for the help but I actually found exactly what I was looking for in this article fontis.com.au/blog/magento/custom-customer-signup-attributes – Yamaha32088 Jan 12 '14 at 19:44
  • Maybe you could answer your own question with what exactly you found in the article, to help other people who use this website and could have the same problems and also to help this site grow. Thanks – David Manners Jan 12 '14 at 19:46

I found what I was looking for in this article. Toward the bottom of the file there is a section called Address Details, by following the directions of deleting the two if statements it was added to the page exactly as intended. I have included the edited copt of the file with the changes for someone to easily copy/paste. The file is located app/design/frontend/base/default/template/persistent/customer/form/register.phtml

If you want to just show the basic address information that comes standard with magento in the registration form this can also be done via the layout xml. You can add the follow snippet into your local.xml file.

<customer_account_create>
    <reference name="customer_form_register">
        <action method="setShowAddressFields"><show_address>true</show_address></action>
    </reference>
</customer_account_create>

NOTE: the show_address can actually be anything really.
