Map Checkboxes To User Registration Form?

  1. I have some custom custom user meta that includes several checkboxes sets, like this,

    http://glui.me/?i=gj1vfqgqytxcta3/2013-05-12_at_7.57.38_PM.png/

    And on the front end I have a user registration (update user) form like so,

    http://glui.me/?i=0fz7vv9c8caw6p5/2013-05-12_at_7.58.30_PM.png/

    However, there is no option for those form fields in the user registration meta section in here,

    Is it possible to have checkboxes that can update info?

    Thank you.

  2. To show the extended profile information on the user profile page, you would need to do something like this: http://justintadlock.com/archives/2009/09/10/adding-and-using-custom-user-profile-fields

    Otherwise, Gravity Forms will be the only place you can manage that information.

  3. Right, yes I have many custom user meta options, all working and displaying fine. For example I have several for address info, and the user registration form has mapping options for the custom meta. However, no mapping options show up for the custom meta checkbox fields... Does that make sense?

    I am also having this problem, except it is slightly more puzzling.

    If I create a form with Checkboxes, Radios or a Dropdown, the User Registration Add-on populates the 'User Meta' mapping dropdown field with the *values* of the Checkboxes/Radios/Dropdown opposed to the *key* ...

    Example:
    Type: Checkbox
    Key: 'favorite_colors'
    Values: Red, Blue, Orange, Green, Violet.

    On user registration page the mapping Dropdown contains options Red, Blue, Orange, Green and Violet, instead of 'favorite_color.' Not exactly sure why... as there is no foreseeable reason why anyone would map a specific value to a field

    Thoughts?
