Add/Hide Custom Fields to User Profiles? (1 post)

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for an efficient way to add custom fields to user-profiles in WordPress. For instance I'd love to add a field called "Address" to the user profiles that I can work with later on.

    E.g. By default there is a way to get the user display_name like this
    $user_info = get_userdata(1); $user_info->display_name;

    However once I have an additional field for the address in my profiles, i'd also like to be able to call $user_info->address; or something similar to get this information on a small profile page.

    Have you any recommendations for a good plugin or a way to do this by myself.

    Finally I'd also like to remove already existing fields like "Jabber, Google Talk" etc. from the profile page.

    Thank you in advance,
    Matt

    UPDATE: Don't get me wrong: I don't want to add fields to the "signup/register" page but only to the profile pages itself.
