I have followed every tutorial I have found and doesn't work. I am trying to add the customer groups on the customer registration page but its not working. I hope this question will help others also as all the previous questions based on this are too old. Please, check below my code:




Replace this





<div class="input-box">
<label for="group_id"><?php echo $this->__('Group') ?><span class="required">*</span></label><br/>
<select name="group_id" id="group_id" title="<?php echo $this->__('Group') ?>" class="validate-group required-entry input-text" />
<?php $groups = Mage::helper('customer')->getGroups()->toOptionArray(); ?>
<?php foreach($groups as $group){ ?>
<option value="<?php print $group['value'] ?>"><?php print $group['label'] ?></option>
<?php } ?>

  • Thanks alot it worked after enable the template path. Its because of the theme. Ghost theme manage its own register.phtml in persistent folder that's why changes done in app/design/frontend/base/default/template/persistent/customer/form/register.phtml was not working but now it show groups on registration page.
