i need to make a custom login form but i got a hard time finding references from my google search so i hope someone here is able to point towards some links to lay the grounds for me.

A standard wordpress registration normaly contains:

  • Username
  • Password
  • Email

well thats not enough for my needs :(

i need something like:

  • Username
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Phone number
  • Car Id
  • bool values for salary
  • Email
  • password

so.... making a custom login form like this is pretty easy but i'm pretty new to wordpress so i thought it better to ask some veterans in here for the proporway of doing it.

can someone post some links for the proper way to customize the login form like this?

first should i put all the none standard user info in the meta table?

second how would i go about adding these fields for the users to update them in the user settings section (proper wordpress way)?


thanks in advance, and sorry for my poor english :/
