Hi, is it better for each custom post type to have its own phone & address fields or should there be a common address and contact details form for everyone. So fields like country and county don't need to be repeated everywhere? It also maybe easier to set access for what members/non-members can see.

There isn't such kind of built-in feature within Toolset Maps plugin, you might consider custom codes:

You can get the coordinates values from custom address field:

Then setup custom codes to get the country value from above coordinates values, for example:



OK i didn't explain my question properly.

I need the field "crew position" which comes from a taxonomy. In posts and in sign up forms. Do i need to create the field in both post forms and in user forms?
So there would be the same field in 2 places. Or 2 fields with the same name.

WordPress users don't support custom taxonomies, so you can only use "crew position" taxonomy in post form.
Here is a document about "How to Create Custom Searches and Relationships for Users in WordPress":
For your reference.



Sorry, I still need help.
Do I need to create "name" as a custom field for post forms so its available to posts and user forms so its available for sign up.



Your link does explain how I take registration in 2 parts. Basic from WP and then a CPT for extra information about a user. Then display users full profile from 2 different sources.



My issue is resolved now. Thank you! Thanks Luo
