Why use a drop down box ? you could use this simple tutorial to make things clear :

IP.Board has a feature that you can utilize when you want to add more information for your members to fill out in their profile called custom profile fields. This feature can also be used as a preventative measure from spam bots registering on your forum.

To get started, let's get acquanted with the settings. Go through the following menus and links to get through to the custom profile fields page:

  • Admin Control Panel > Click on the Management Tab
  • In the sidebar on the left, look for the Custom Profile Fields link under the Users and Groups link set.

This is the page that you should now see.



Now click on the Add New Field button, highlighted in the picture in red. Fill in the boxes accordingly:

  • Field Title: Spam Prevention
  • Description: Enter 10 alternating alpha characters and numbers. Example: a1b2c3d4e5
  • Field Type: Text Input
  • Maximum Input: 10
  • Display order: Leave Blank
  • Expected Input Format: ananananan
  • Option Content (for drop downs): Leave Blank
  • Include on registration page?: Yes
  • Field MUST be completed and not left empty?: [ Yes
  • Field can be edited by the member?: No
  • Make this a private profile field?: Yes
  • Make Admin and Super Moderator Editable/Viewable Only?: Yes
  • Topic View Format?: Leave Blank


That's all you have to do. Potential members will then have to manually fill in that field.
