    I have never used WPForms before, so I apologize if my terminology is incorrect or lacking.

    1. In effect I need to achieve 2 pieces of the puzzle, the first, from what I can see should be easy. When an user signs up to the website, I need to collect their telephone number. Would I be correct in assuming that if I follow the guide on this page, I can add a telephone field to the user registration process:

      https://wpforms.com/how-to-create-a-user-registration-form-in-wordpress/

    2. I then need to create a totally separate, general contact form that will be available on the website that will ask questions such as first name, last name, email address, telephone number, and additional questions. I read up that you can use smart tags to pull in user meta data to auto-fill such as first name, last name etc. when an user is logged in, but will smart tags be able to pull in the newly created telephone information of a logged in user? If this can’t be done via smart tags, is there another way?

    Many thanks in advanced.

    Hi designreaction,

    To create a form that adds users to your WordPress database, you’ll need the User Registration addon. In case it helps, please see our tutorial on how to set up the User Registration form.

    Yes, you can add a telephone field and map this to the User Profile page. We have a detailed guide on how to set up custom user meta fields.

    To pull the custom user meta data, you can use the user meta Smart Tag, such as {user_meta key="user_telephone"} in the default value option of your new form. You’ll need to use the user meta key which was set up in your user registration form, as described in the tutorial above.

    I hope this helps! For further pre-sales question, please contact us via our contact form.

    Hi Ethan,

    many thanks for your reply.

    That’s great to hear that it is possible to achieve. So that I have all the information to hand to provide my client with a cost, is this achieveable with the free version of your plugin, if not what are the fees associated.

    Thanks again Ethan.
