    Form Page which requires scrolling

    Right now my "User Registration" Form barely fits on one screen, and I may be adding 2-3 more fields.

    Is it a big deal if I have a Form which requires Users to scroll down to complete it?

    Sincerely,


    Debbie

    No, but having a daunting registration process can deter some potential members.

    Do you REALLY need to have all those fields on registration? Or can you separate some over to a "profile" page - you can even forward them right to the profile page after registration, just to encourage members to fill in all the fields.

    Let me clarify some things...

    1.) "Form will not fit on screen..." is from *my* perspective doing development on my 13" MacBook...

    2.) Here is my current Registration Form...

    Code:
    (* = Required Field)
    
    *First Name:
    
    *Username:
    
    *E-mail:
    
    *Password:
    
    *Confirm Password:
    
    Location:

    I think that is a pretty *modest* Registration Form...

    Sincerely,


    Debbie

    I agree, but all fitting is dependent of your design / css... which we don't see.
    • Do you have a test page online, or can you make one?
