how to create additonal fields for user profile

  • phoenixolivia


    Can anyone tell me to go about creating additional fields for my users to fill in upon signing up? Right now users only seem to need to provide a name and an email address. I would like to create a database of users’ addresses, phone numbers, profession… things like that.

    So how to I make it available for users to add this type of information when they sign up?

    I’m using the most recent versions of WP and BBpress as of Nov 27 2012

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Right now there isn’t a straight forward API for this like their should be.

    If you are going to be doing a lot of user profile customizations, it might be worth considering installing BuddyPress and then just disabling everything except the user profiles.

    From my understanding this is the best route to go if you want to go beyond what bbPress profiles do out of the box.
