Cimy User Extra Fields
[resolved] Show WP hidden fields and custom fields in User-->Add New in admin (4 posts)

    How can I show the firstname, lastname and my custom extra fields in User--> Add New User in the admin area? (www.site.com/wp-admin/user-new.php)

    My site is invitation only, so I need to see the fields in my add user page in the admin area.

    Also how can I have my custom field to show just before Biographical Info?

    Thanks a lot and for the great plugin!

    This is covered by the FAQ.

    Thanks and sorry for not checking the FAQ thoroughly first.

    I believe this is the answer to my question.

    A: Unluckily due to a WordPress limitation I can’t add Extra Fields into user-new.php but you can quickly add all the users you want using my plugin: Cimy User Manager – http://www.marcocimmino.net/cimy-wordpress-plugins/cimy-user-manager/

    Thanks for trying at least, I still need this feature as I need to add user with complete info once in awhile and I think it's much efficient for me to just fill the data in instead of importing just one row of data.

    Anyhow, am not really a programmer but tried playing around the user-new.php and removing the condition...

    <?php if ( !is_multisite() ) { ?>

    above the firstname and lastname form fields showed the hidden field I want to show but no inputs are being written in the database. I also able to create a custom filed in there but the same result.

    How you can at least give advise how to have this write to the database.

    As said, it is NOT possible. File a WordPress feature request.
