• Jumping to my real life scenario.

    In ‘My Account’ page I want to choose which fields would show up and can user edit them.

    In registration form I have ‘gender’ field.
    I want that info be editable in my account page. I made it ‘Can user edit this field’ to true.
    But it does not appear in ‘My Account’ page.

    What to do?

    Hi joydipkar73,

    Unfortunately, this is not possible in the latest version. If you need to add custom page to the account page, you will need to hire a freelance developer to write this custom code to extend the functionality of the plugin.

    Thanks.

    Well, I understand.
    But pls dont take it otherwise if I wonder why ‘Ultimate Member’ development team does not make it more flexible by adding more customizable options!
    Coz see 5 ‘No’ from your side is opening the opportunity for another plugin who will say ‘use our plugin’ … simply they are parallel to yours and ahead of that 5 ‘Yes’…

    Thnks anyway for your kind response.

    When someone gives you as a gift a horse, do you first check its teeth?

    So are you wanting the options you have in your registration page to show up on the “general” account page? If so, I too have been trying to find a way to do this. I have been going thought the code to see if there is a quick fix and I think I have found one.
    In the ultimate-member\core\um-account.php file. Find case ‘general’:
    under
    $fields = $ultimatemember->builtin->get_specific_fields( $args );

    add
    $um_fields = get_option(‘um_fields’);
    $fields = array_merge ( $fields, $um_fields);

    Now I have not fully tested this yet but for now it seems to work.

    There are a few issues so far. For one the fields do have the order that that is set in the registration form so for me the extra spaces and titles I added last are list at the bottom. I have not found how they store the ordering yet. I guess I could clear the form and re-enter the fields in the proper order.

    The other issue is the required fields are not being checked. I have found a way to have it check but you have to edit the um-actions-account.php code.

    find:
    /***
    *** @validate for errors in account page
    ***/
    add_action(‘um_submit_account_errors_hook’,’um_submit_account_errors_hook’);
    function um_submit_account_errors_hook( $args ) {
    global $ultimatemember;

    and under

    if ( email_exists( $_POST[‘user_email’] ) && email_exists( $_POST[‘user_email’] ) != get_current_user_id() ) {
    $ultimatemember->form->add_error(‘user_email’, __(‘Email already linked to another account’,’ultimatemember’) );
    }

    add your fields you want required; i.e.
    if ( isset($_POST[‘City’]) && ( strlen(trim( $_POST[‘City’] ) ) == 0 ) ) {
    $ultimatemember->form->add_error(‘City’, __(‘You must provide your City’,’ultimatemember’) );
    }

    It would be nice if they would just fix the thing. For now I’ll be looking at other plugins that may work more to my needs.

    Update/edit to my last post;

    You can add this code instead. It looks for all fields that are set required and sets the validation note. This way you don’t have to hand code each.

    $um_fields = get_option(‘um_fields’);
    foreach ($_POST as $key => $value){
    if (array_key_exists($key, $um_fields)) {
    if ($um_fields[$key][‘required’] == 1 && ( strlen(trim( $value ) ) == 0 ) ) {
    $ultimatemember->form->add_error($um_fields[$key][‘title’], __(‘This field is required.’,’ultimatemember’) );

    }
    }
    }

    revised the code just given. I had a few issues where add_error($um_fields[$key][‘title’], was not matching up correctly. I changed it to add_error($key . I also edited the error note to match how it looks on the registration page.

    $um_fields = get_option(‘um_fields’);
    foreach ($_POST as $key => $value){
    if (array_key_exists($key, $um_fields)) {
    if ($um_fields[$key][‘required’] == 1 && ( strlen(trim( $value ) ) == 0 ) ) {
    $ultimatemember->form->add_error($key, __($um_fields[$key][‘title’].’ is required’,’ultimatemember’) );
    }
    }
    }
