Hi Martin,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The form that you are using to regis, was this form generated with Toolset? Or was it generated by the theme.

If it is created by toolset then you can just Go to Toolset -> User Forms and edit your user form then just drag the field from the custom fields section of the form then save the form.

If it is generated by your theme then I would recommend that you consult your theme author for a guide on to do this.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Martin,

I must apologize for not being better able to assist. Why not re-create the registration form using our Forms plugin so that it would be much easier to add the fields that you need.

will need the toolset custome field adding to the function...

Can you provide a bit of clarity on this one for me ?

Thanks,
Shane

hey shane i found a document for this over on my theme site , i did a little work on it and have now got this in my functions.php

this adds a simple name field to registration form , stores to the database displays on the profile , can be edited etc etc , so it works perfect, i need to replace the simple name box to my toolset custom user field(address) . which is user-address.
reg for as it stands is here
hidden link

custom field for user-address is here (this field already shows in the edit profile page funnily enough so its really only needs adding on the front end reg form and storing to database on registration)

hidden link (same user and pass as previously supplied , if needed please set me a privte reply)

the code in my functions is

/******* martin/userfields ************/

// display the custom fields
function at_custom_fields() {
?>
<fieldset class="at_fieldset">
<legend><?php _e('trainer adress', 'appthemes'); ?></legend>
<p>
<label for="at_name"><?php _e('adress', 'appthemes'); ?></label><br/>
<input class="text" type="text" name="at_name" id="at_name" value=<?php if (isset($_POST['at_name'])) echo esc_attr($_POST['at_name']); ?>>
</p>
</fieldset>

<style type="text/css">
.at_fieldset { border: 1px solid #ccc; padding: 10px; border-radius: 5px; }
.at_referral_note { font-size: 12px; color: #ccc; }
.at_number { width: 100px }
</style>
<?php
}

// display the custom fields on registration form
add_action( 'register_form', 'at_custom_fields' );

// register the extra fields as user metadata
function at_register_custom_fields( $user_id, $password = "", $meta = array() ) {

// custom fields
$fields = array(
'at_name',
);
// cleans and updates the custom fields
foreach ( $fields as $field ) {
$value = stripslashes( trim( $_POST[$field] ) ) ;
if ( ! empty( $value ) ) {
update_user_meta( $user_id, $field, $value );
}
}

}

// save the custom fields to the database as soon as the user is registered on the database
add_action( 'user_register', 'at_register_custom_fields' );

// display custom fields/values on the backend or frontend
function at_custom_fields_display( $user ) {
$user_id = $user->ID;
?>
<?php if ( is_admin() ) { ?>
<!-- // show the backend HTML -->
<h3><?php _e('Additional Information', 'appthemes'); ?></h3>

<table class="form-table">
<tr>
<th><label for="at_name"><?php _e('adress', 'appthemes'); ?></label></th>
<td>
<input class="text" type="text" name="at_name" id="at_name" value="<?php echo get_user_meta( $user_id, 'at_name', true ) ; ?>">
</td>
</tr>

</table>

<?php } else { ?>

<!-- // show the frontend HTML -->
<fieldset>
<legend><?php _e('trainer adress', 'appthemes'); ?></legend>
<p>
<label for="at_name"><?php _e('address', 'appthemes'); ?></label>
<input class="text" type="text" name="at_name" id="at_name" value="<?php echo get_user_meta( $user_id, 'at_name', true ) ; ?>">
</p>
</fieldset>

<?php } ?>
<?php
}

// display the custom fields on the user profile page (frontend and admin)
add_action( 'show_user_profile', 'at_custom_fields_display' ); // frontend
add_action( 'edit_user_profile', 'at_custom_fields_display' ); // backend

// updates custom fields
function at_custom_fields_update( $user_id ) {

if ( !current_user_can( 'edit_user', $user_id ) )
return false;

// updatable fields
$fields = array(
'at_name',
);

foreach ( $fields as $field ) {
$value = stripslashes( trim( $_POST[$field] ) ) ;
if ( ! empty( $value ) ) {
update_user_meta( $user_id, $field, $value );
}
}

}

// additional fields update
add_action( 'edit_user_profile_update', 'at_custom_fields_update' );
add_action( 'personal_options_update', 'at_custom_fields_update' );

many many thanks

Hi Martin,

Our Address field is actually quite complex. Based on what I see here the most you can do is to just add a single line field and give it the slug of our Types address field so that you can actually add the address to the database.

You won't be able to have the map load on the form where the user enters the address. In order to have this you will definitely need to recreate your user form using our Forms plugin.

Unless your theme's form provides some form of functionality that you absolutely require then I recommend that you remake your form in Toolset a it can become easier to manage especially if you're going to add custom user fields.

Thanks,
Shane
