Hi Community!

This one should be simple.

I am about to tweak my registration page. I want to add the question: “How did you find our Community?” and fill in a handful of pre-set options.

Nice! Very helpful answer.
Thank you so much @Oliver Marriott 

I’ll definitely use “multi list” for this one.
