I would like to customise the register form please in PHP

Hi There,
I have just installed a component for user registration.
You can see it here http://www.ajitgems.com/upgrade/index.php  and just hit the register button on the user login panel

Now on the page I would like to add a few more fields to the form?

Can someone help me customise the files so I can add these.

This is what I would like on the register form:

NAME (COMPULSORY)
COMPANY NAME (NOT COMPULSORY) (as a person can get a abn in a personal or company name)
ABN (COMPULSORY)
ADDRESS (COMPULSORY)
PHONE (COMPULSORY)
FAX (NOT COMPULSORY)
EMAIL (COMPULSORY)


I suspect I need to change the default.php file in the /site/views/register/tmpl folder but what I am not sure about is whether  I need to change other files to get this to work.

The whole component can be found at

THANKS

Hi snowball77,

This component is mainly based on Joomla Default User Registration. it is not sufficient to customize the
current component. if we need to attain the result then we need to customize the Joomla User Register Form.

we should follow massive steps to customize the current component for your needs.  can you look into some other component?

Sorry do you mean that I shouldn't use AJAX register or I should customise the basic User Registration that is installed as part of the JOOMLA package.

What do you mean I should consider another component?

Do you have a suggestion of a component that will allow the type of registration I am after?
