    I would like to know what is it that I am doing wrong in the Registration Widget. I keep trying to add the custom fields that I have created for my Basic Profile.

    When I go to add the field I get this code in the Edit Template page: <sitefinity:TextField runat="server" DisplayMode="Read" Value='<%# Eval("Company")%>' />

    When I add this code and preview the page, nothing shows up, nothing. 

    when I change DisplayMode to "Write" I am able to see an input field that does absolutely nothing in regards to registering that fields data. 

    I other words I need to know what I am suppose to write in this template editor in order to ge the right field to show up.   that has been helpful but at the end he just mentions the registration widget instead of actually showing how to add the custom fields.

    please help!

    Hello Fredy,

     I'm posting the answer from the support ticket here as well:

     Here's how you should add the field to the template, so it can be bound properly:

    Copy Code
    <sitefinity:TextField runat="server" ID="testCustom"  DisplayMode="Write"DataItemType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Model.SitefinityProfile"DataFieldName="testCustom"/>

    The name of my field here is "testCustom" and it is added in the basic profile. If you add the field it to another profile type, you will have to change the DataItemType to the relevant Profile Type.  The DataFieldName property indicates to which field the value should be bound. Also, an ID is necessary to be added.

    Good point.
    Now what happens when you wish to add a Yes/No (true/false) profile property.Or a dropdownlist selection of a profile property.
    Must you create a customized widget to override the basic registration widget?
    True, this is not that complicated in the front-end, but how would you substitue the registration and profile widgets in the back-end?
    Thanks in advance.
