I am trying to add custom fields to the customer create form but I am having some trouble (in Magento 1.7.2).
so, I added the custom attribute and it shows up fine on the
adminhtml/customer/edit but it doesn't show on the create customer form (register) knowing that I included it in the forms for the field, and when I made it required I found out that the form controller is looking for it's value but it doesn't find it. So I figured I have to add the field manually to the template of the form.
So my first question is : is my process correct (is this the right way to do it)?
my second question is : why the registration form template is under
/persistent/customer/form and not under
/customer/form ? what is the difference between them ?
