I'm trying to fix a bug in the Register Plus plugin. It uses the update_usermeta function to create and update extra fields in the registration form and the user profile.
The problem is that it uses update_usermeta function for the user_url (website on the profile). But in fact user_url is stored in the wp_user table, not in the wp_usermeta table.
As a result, you can't update any user website that has been entered at registration.
So I'd like to know if there's a WordPress function like update_usermeta that writes to wp_user table instead of the wp_usermeta table.
And if so, how do you use it?
Much thanks, haven't been able to find what I'm looking for in the Codex.
