WordPress Function to Add Custom User Profile Fields

Add Custom User Profile Fields

Place the code below into your functions.php file to add custom user profile fields. Edit or add lines as you see fit.

Remember not to remove the line: return $contactmethods; otherwise this won’t work.

// CUSTOM USER PROFILE FIELDS
   function my_custom_userfields( $contactmethods ) {

    // ADD CONTACT CUSTOM FIELDS
    $contactmethods['contact_phone_office']     = 'Office Phone';
    $contactmethods['contact_phone_mobile']     = 'Mobile Phone';
    $contactmethods['contact_office_fax']       = 'Office Fax';

    // ADD ADDRESS CUSTOM FIELDS
    $contactmethods['address_line_1']       = 'Address Line 1';
    $contactmethods['address_line_2']       = 'Address Line 2 (optional)';
    $contactmethods['address_city']         = 'City';
    $contactmethods['address_state']        = 'State';
    $contactmethods['address_zipcode']      = 'Zipcode';
    return $contactmethods;
   }
   add_filter('user_contactmethods','my_custom_userfields',10,1);
