Is it possible to move Telephone fields from billing address to the customer create account section? I need to modify account creation page by directly making changes on core files. Is that possible ? Or there are any settings available in adminpanel to fetch customer address also during registration ?
I just tried by adding
<label for="telephone" class="required"><em>*</em><?php echo $this->__('Telephone') ?></label>
<input type="text" name="telephone" id="telephone" value="<?php echo $this->escapeHtml($this->getFormData()->getTelephone()) ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Telephone') ?>" class="input-text <?php echo $this->helper('customer/address')->getAttributeValidationClass('telephone') ?>" />
to persistent/customer/form/register.phtml file. Now the field is visible in create page. But its not getting saved.
Thanks in advance!
