Hi,

On my drupal register form, I allowed users to set their own time zone. For some reason, that locale settings is appearing right in the middle of my form. Do you know a Drupal way to move it to the bottom of the form? I went to admin/config/people/accounts/fields but I can´t see that field being added there. So where is it? how can I change its position?

I would greatly appreciate any help on this,

You could modify the user registration form template. https://drupal.org/node/1211520

Did you try going directly to the form page and clicking on WEBFORM? It lets you move the elements around by the cross to the left of each element.
Or is this a specific content type you have created? In this case you go to Structure->content types and manage the display there.

Hello experts, Thank you for your answers,

I ended up using the link itkadmin provided and it was quite helpful. I am printing all my fields using user-register-form.tpl.php like this:

<?php print render($form['form_id']); ?>
<?php print render($form['form_build_id']); ?>
<?php
 print render ($form['name_first']);
 print render ($form['name_last']);
 print render ($form['city']);
 print render ($form['country']); //This is the Country
 print render ($form['sex']);
 print render ($form['date_of_birth']);
 print render ($form['phone_number']);
 print render ($form['mail']);

the problem I found is that mail is not being printed out. No idea why. I did not created mail for the user registration form, it was actually placed there by the system. But when I do print_r($form) I can see the mail array like this:

[mail] => Array ( [#type] => textfield [#title] => E-mail [#maxlength] => 254 [#description] => A valid e-mail address. All e-mails from the system will be sent to this address. The e-mail address is not made public and will only be used if you wish to receive a new password or wish to receive certain news or notifications by e-mail. [#required] => 1 [#default_value] => [#attributes] => Array ( [placeholder] => xxx@xxx.com )

so I am a little confused.. why it is not outputting the input email field?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

oh, ok, I think I found the answer. It was suppose to be like this:

print render($form['account']['mail']);

thanks!
