MODX Meetup Moscow '18

Moscow! It has been on our Meetup-location wish-list for years now. The Russian MODX community is huge and now is finally the time for a meetup in the Russian capital: Moscow!

The people behind the well-known and websites organised the meetup: a wonderful location, speakers and live-translation. This was the second time we got live-translation during a meetup (Minsk 2017) was the first time and it works perfect! Russian and English speaking people in one audience.

Minishop2 and Office: additional fields (gender, building, fullname)

Dear MODX Community,

I some questions about using fields in minishop2 with the Extra «Office».

1. user field «gender»
I added a select field for the gender of a customer. I want to use it for the salutation (Mr. / Ms.).
It works within the Office form chunk (tpl.Office.Profile.form)
<!-- gender: {$gender} -->
    <div class="form-group">
        <label class="col-md-2 control-label" for="gender">Anrede</label>
        <div class="col-md-2">
            <select class="form-control" name="gender" id="gender">
              <option value="0">-- Anrede --</option>
              <option value="2" {if $gender == "2" }selected{/if}>Frau</option>
              <option value="1"{if $gender == "1" }selected{/if}>Herr</option>
    <!-- end gender -->
But on registration (in the chunk «tpl.Office.auth.login» it does not save the gender. How do I activate it?

2. Gender in a order of minishop2
How can I add the field «gender» (see above) in the address fields in a order? Chunk «tpl.msOrder».

3. Email addresses with errors
Sometimes new customers do write their email address with errors. Is there a way to add a second field for the email address where they have to enter the email address again to verify it?

thank you for your help.
