I know this is probably something very easy to do...but I am trying to figure out the best way to set up a simple User Registration page that is easily integrated into the whole site, as well as, integrated into the E-commerce module.
I've seen the [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/registration-module/]Registration Module[/url], but it's very old (not supported/not released)...and I am not sure how easy it is to integrate with the E-commerce fields when they require you to register before checking out. I've also seen the [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/userpage-module/]Userpage Module[/url] that seems much newer (still unsupported) and says it's a one stop shop for just about everything I need...but not sure how to integrate that into the ecommerce one.
Is there a good way to take the Registration form that's included in the Ecommerce module and create a page for it...then adding a few extra fields (Adding state and zip fields to the form)? This way they have a place to edit their account and/or profile.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised as it will use something to automatically scaffold any fields that the ecommerce module decorates the member class with. If one doesn't try another one I am sure one of them will.

I've tried the [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/registration-module/]Registration Module[/url] already...and although it's a good 'starting point', I am not wanting to customize this too much.
I am looking at the [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/userpage-module/]Userpage Module[/url] right now...seeing if there is much availability for the Ecommerce integration I need.
I was also given a link to a new module that seems to be the most updated and so far very well written. I am going to try them both tonight and see which one is best. I am really trying to not have to do this all custom code myself!

I've downloaded and started using the memberprofiles module by ajshort. its pretty slick, but is there a way to extend it? Basically I need to capture a few more fields of information like a mailing address, and a checkbox and/or radio buttons on how they were referred. I've looked at extending the MemberProfilePage_Controller, but I need to save that data to the database. Any recommendations?
