Support » Plugin: User registration & user profile - Profile Builder » [Plugin: Profile Builder] Save the new fields in the registration process

  • Resolved shaolin46


    Hi…my compliments for the plugin. I need to modify it, so I’ve added few code lines in the plugin-files to register more informations on the user profile.
    But I’m having a great problem :
    It can’t save the extra information added in the registration process, while if a user after the registration goes to modify the profile and fill the same extra information and update the information are saved!

    I’ve seen in the wppb-front-end-register the call wp_insert_user( $userdata) and I’ve seen in the wordpress codex that the function wp_update_user( $userdata ) is the right function to add new profile informations, even if those doesn’t exist before.

    So I’ve written :
    $user = wp_insert_user( $userdata );
    $update = wp_update_user( array ( ‘ID’ => $user, ‘Information_1’ => ‘value’, ‘Information_2’ => ‘value’ , [..etc..] ) );

    But it doesn’t work! 🙁

    Any help?
    Thank you for the attention.

  • I reply to myself after trying different things….
    The answer is to use the update_user_meta() function…

    Simply after the
    $new_user = wp_insert_user(…);

    I’ve added
    update_user_meta( $new_user, ‘field_1’ , ‘value_1’ );
    update_user_meta( $new_user, ‘field_2’ , ‘value_2’ );

    an It works!

    Hope this can help someone 🙂
