How to remove date of birth


Recommended Posts

Hi all

When customers create a new account they are asked their date of birth.

This is not needed as I am not selling anything which requires you

to be an adult etc.

A few have complained about this so can I remove or make this question

so that it is not required.

I asume that it can be done in the create_account.php

but being a novice at php do not like experimenting as it always ends up as a parse error. :'(

So can anybody point me to the part that needs editing and how.

There is no need to edit the file - you can do it via the admin.


Go to configuration>customer details and set Date of Birth to false


Hi Natalie

Thanks. I have set it to false and all seems OK :thumbsup:

Easy when you know how :D
