Custom Themes

If your theme does supply an alternative registration form, you need to supply a modified version of the form to the addon or the addons default template will be used. Your theme specific template needs to be placed in


and has to contain the following new fields

{{include file="field_input.tpl" field=$mathcaptcha}}

at the correct position of the form.
