What version are you using? v8 it sounds like? That particular module control is hard coded and doesn't use a portal template so you'd have to modify the ascx file associated with it and add the field.

You can find the file here: /CMSModules/Membership/Controls/Roles/RoleEdit.ascx

Thank you for your message.

This seems to be coming from a version 7. Its possible to include your custom field by customizing following file:


This is a system file and it doesn't use portal engine to generate the form. Please note that such customizations are not supported by default and it might get overriden by future hotfix/upgrade. Especially during upgrade to version 8 you might experience some issues which will need to be addressed.

In most cases I would recommend to create completely custom module which is the safest option.

Feel free to let me know if you have further questions.

Kind regards,
