Create / modify customer registration page
« on: May 25, 2020, 05:18:44 PM »
Background: I'm new to e-commerce configuration; conversant with Java, been developing with other languages for many years, I don't know much about PHP.
We have a school bus company and we are selling transportation for the children to and from school.
I've got most things sorted out, but where does the parent (customer) the regular things about the family like name, address, phone, etc.?
And also, we also need to know how many children are registering, their grade, age, school, and names.
This being child related, we also need to figure in alternate addresses and contacts.

I've searched around and I can only figure out that after registering, the parent will be directed to a custom form that would need to filled out, asking for all the data bits I need.

I have a bit of a workaround where a parent will purchase a service and then be asked to fill in an option block with the child's info.
But that means an awfully long option block with many fields, and then they would have to purchase each seat individually. They wouldn't be able to say: 3 seats on the 3PM bus.

Question:
Is there already a form that I can modify and use?
Is there a built-in function that I can extend by adding fields?
Maybe create a whole new page, perhaps?
If using a template, where would the data be stored so I can access it for the invoice?

Thank you very much.

Thank you for the replies, you've helped me move along nicely.
I created a form, attached it to a block, created a new layout page and placed the block on the page.
However, all I see on the page is the title and the HTML text I added when I created the content page.
I'm thinking that the form has to be added to the content somehow.
I've attached some screen shots.

Got it, and of course, it worked, thanks.

Further on this point:
I would like to modify the registration page when someone first registers.
Here's the thing:
The existing registration page collects basic information about the account holder - that works ok.
But then, i want to collect more data about each of the parents: their address and contact info.
Then, collect information about each of the children they'll be registering for bus service - first & last name, grade, age and if they live with parent 1 or 2.
Here's what I would like to do now:
1. Modify some of the fields like fax and company
2. Page or tab into the next set of data because I have to make room for 9 children (yes, 9)
The length of the page is now very long and cluttered.
Account Info
Parent 1  Parent 2  Child 1  Child 2  .....>  Child 9
First Name  First Name  First Name  First Name  .....>  First Name
Last Name  Last Name  Last Name  Last Name  .....>  Last Name
Address  Address  Resides 1 or 2  Resides 1 or 2  .....>  Resides 1 or 2
City  City  Grade  Grade  .....>  Grade
Postal  Postal  Age  Age  .....>  Age
.....  ..... 
.....  ..... 
In a nutshell, my problem is that I can't find the registration form so I can modify it, and my question is where is it and can I modify it?

Thanks.
