So, I have a code, that let's a user register, using the regular fields from WordPress. Everything works, the user is created and the info is registered.

But I need to add new fields in the form, and they have to get registered in the DB.

I probably have to add commands to the 'functions.php' to create those fields on the back-end, but, how to do it, and how to 'link' them with the fields on the form that is gonna be showed on the front-end of the site?

Here is the code I have so far:

function ds_registration_form(&$fields, &$errors) {

// Check args and replace if necessary
  if (!is_array($fields))     $fields = array();
  if (!is_wp_error($errors))  $errors = new WP_Error;

  // Check for form submit
  if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {

// Get fields from submitted form
$fields = cr_get_fields();

// Validate fields and produce errors
if (cr_validate($fields, $errors)) {

  // If successful, register user
  wp_insert_user($fields);

  // And display a message
  echo 'Registration complete. Goto <a href="' . get_site_url() . '/wp-login.php">login page</a>.';

  // Clear field data
  $fields = array(); 
}
  }

  // Santitize fields
  cr_sanitize($fields);

  // Generate form
  cr_display_form($fields, $errors);
}

function cr_sanitize(&$fields) {
  $fields['user_login']   =  isset($fields['user_login'])  ?     sanitize_user($fields['user_login']) : '';
  $fields['user_pass']    =  isset($fields['user_pass'])   ?     esc_attr($fields['user_pass']) : '';
  $fields['user_email']   =  isset($fields['user_email'])  ? sanitize_email($fields['user_email']) : '';
  $fields['user_url']     =  isset($fields['user_url'])    ? esc_url($fields['user_url']) : '';
  $fields['first_name']   =  isset($fields['first_name'])  ? sanitize_text_field($fields['first_name']) : '';
  $fields['last_name']    =  isset($fields['last_name'])   ? sanitize_text_field($fields['last_name']) : '';
  $fields['nickname']     =  isset($fields['nickname'])    ? sanitize_text_field($fields['nickname']) : '';
  $fields['description']  =  isset($fields['description']) ? esc_textarea($fields['description']) : '';
}

function cr_display_form($fields = array(), $errors = null) {

  // Check for wp error obj and see if it has any errors  
  if (is_wp_error($errors) && count($errors->get_error_messages()) > 0) {

    // Display errors
    ?><ul><?php
    foreach ($errors->get_error_messages() as $key => $val) {
      ?><li>
        <?php echo $val; ?>
      </li><?php
    }
    ?></ul><?php
  }

  // Disaply form

  ?><form action="<?php $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ?>" method="post">
    <div>
      <label for="user_login">Username <strong>*</strong></label>
      <input type="text" name="user_login" value="<?php echo     (isset($fields['user_login']) ? $fields['user_login'] : '') ?>">

}

function cr_get_fields() {

  • There are plugins that will do all this for you. If you want to continue with a custom solution, I'd recommend rolling your code into a plugin - not functions.php - because if you ever change the theme you'll lose everything from functions.php. There are several tutorials available on adding your own custom fields for registration - please do some searching and come back with a more specific question if you get stuck. :) – WebElaine Sep 20 '17 at 20:14
  • My question is pretty specific and I already made that into a plugin. I don't wanna get a plugin to use, because I haven't found one that I can customize as much as I need. I just need to get a clear understanding of how to put custom fields on my register form and make them get writen in the DB when the user is created. – Marcelo Henriques Cortez Sep 20 '17 at 21:34

Ok, I found the solution.

I placed the 'wp_insert_user' in a variable.

And I used that variable to define the extra fields with 'update_user_meta'.

// If successful, register user
 $user_id = wp_insert_user($fields);
 update_user_meta( $user_id, 'teste', $fields['teste'] );
