You'll probably need to add a JavaScript check for it (also need to modify server code)

You can do it with a simple custom plugin. 

First, go to admin -> users

Find, "Extra fields on user pages or registration form:"
do this: "Full name" -> edit field -> show on registration form

Then, create a custom plugin with only layer.php file. Plugin will have these files:

- qa-plugin.php

- my-layer.php

The qa-plugin.php should look like this:




header('Location: ../../');



// layer 

qa_register_plugin_layer('my-layer.php', 'my layer');

The my-layer.php file should look like this:


class qa_html_theme_layer extends qa_html_theme_base


public function form_field($field, $style) {

if ( $this->template == 'register' && $field['label'] == 'Full name:' ) {

$field['tags'] .= ' required';


qa_html_theme_base::form_field($field, $style);


This should work.

Note this will only modify how it looks. It won't really make it required. You will need to reject the POST requests that don't contain that field
