I can't validate the custom fields in my plugin. I want to skip some registration on WordPress. My code snippet is here:

add_filter( 'registration_errors', 'reg_user_register', 10, 3);
function reg_user_register($errors, $sanitized_user_login, $user_email){
    global $wpdb;
    echo "<pre>";  /*need the values that are post from registration page*/
  • What exactly are you trying to do? Please file an edit and explain. And please also keep in mind: Questions are references for later visitors. Format and write them as good as you can.

  • Are you using WP multisite? registration_errors hook is called after user registration, but not on WP multiste.

You are not using the registration_errors hook properly. It should look like this:

add_filter( 'registration_errors', 'reg_user_register', 10, 3);
function reg_user_register($errors, $sanitized_user_login, $user_email){
    $custom_reg_field1 = $_POST["custom_reg_field1"];
    // add error checking here
    if ( empty($custom_reg_field1) ) {
        $errors->add('custom_reg_field1', __( 'Please enter a reg_field1.' ) );
    return $errors;
  • Thanks for your answer . There is no problem on parameter passing. Is any option to modify,validate the user-edit.php(admin side new user creation) . Any hooks for that ?

  • user-edit.php is not user registration. User registration is wp-login.php?action=register... which is what registration_error hooks into. If you wanted to hook into user-edit.php, I believe it is user_profile_update_errors
