Add Additional Mail Field to your WordPress Form with RegistrationMagic

An additional email field to your WordPress Form can let your user enter more than one email id during their registration. Thus your form can become more functional and efficient in gathering complete user data.

A default WordPress form already has one mandatory email field. But here we are going to talk about adding an additional email field to your WordPress form. Note that the primary Email address appears on the form all the time and is a compulsory field.
