Hey guys,
How do I create a custom registration form that will add the additional fields into SS (and use the Security Groups table)?
Also do a check to see if a username already exists?

With a DataObjectDecorator. The forum has a good example of this too if you want to see how it's down.

Okay. Thanks! I see there is this extraDBFields() class which is obviously the way base objects are being extended. I understand now how the ecommerce module works when a form is being used. Thanks again!
