Is there a way to add "Tel Number:" input field to create account page in Magento 1.7?
As pointed out by Marius the telephone number field is attached to the address and not the customer. For me the easiest thing to do here would be to add customer address as part of the registration process.
Though this might not fit into your business structure.
This can be achieve by adding the following layout snippet:
<customer_account_create> <reference name="customer_form_register"> <action method="setShowAddressFields"><param>true</param></action> </reference> </customer_account_create>
The phone number is an attribute of the customer address object.
If you want it in the register page then you need to create it as a customer attribute.
Adding a customer attribute ... you can find that basically anywhere on the web.
