Hi all!

First let me thank Magento for making such a wonderful open-source program. My hats off to you indeed.

Now, onto my question. I recently added the field “messenger” the registration. I created a field in the database for it called messenger too. I see that its on the registration and also in the account options for users, but it will not save anything to the database… I used one of the articles on here to add it, so I’m not quite sure where it could’ve messed up. It has to be in the POST process or else the messenger field wouldn’t even show up right? Just a little confused and wondering where to look. Thanks ahead of time for anyone who can take time to help me, I REALLY appreciate it smile
