User Registration Add-on and WP User Profile

  1. I know that the new user registration add-on does not create the user-meta data in the WP user profile, but is there a way to get some sample code or functions that we need to generate the data in the user profile...i.e. how do we get the GF data into the user profile?

    I know (enough to be dangerous) how to create custom meta data in the user profile, but I don't know enough to hook into the GF data.

  2. Hi Bgatley,

    The User Registration plugin was developed to work as seamlessly with WordPress as possible. If you know how to create custom meta data in the user profile, then you can use the same method to retrieve (and save) custom user meta that the User Registration plugin has assigned to the user.

    If you need a quick refresher, here is an article by Justin Tadlock that covers this topic:

    In his example he uses "twitter" as the custom user meta name. Just replace twitter with whatever the name is of the user meta you created with the User Registration plugin. Good luck! :)

  3. I have successfully created all custom meta for the user profile editor using the justin link above, but i need an example to follow on checkbox fields. my checkbox field is not taking the checkmarks. This is my first php attempt.
    many thanks,
    eve
