Hello.

Take a look at this:

http://help.forumotion.com/t11187-personalized-profile-fields-warning-system

You must put it as Obligatory, and it will show into the registration form.

The problem is that you can not control what the user writes (the only requirement is to fill it) in that field, but, at least, it can work as a captcha, for avoid bots registering into your forum.

Hello,

1. What invisible_fa suggested above, you can create a profile field and set it as obligatory for registration.

By security question I mean for example:

They have a drop down list.
With questions.
Then they answer it.

You can already do this by profile fields as suggested above.

How can I hide it from other members, because I don't want other members seeing it.

Is there anyway on how that they can put it in, but they're not allowed to edit it after they have put the answer in.

I still want moderators to edit it. So they can request that they want their secret answer to be changed.
