    Hi, I cannot figure out how to insert a profile field into me registration form to ask for Facebook and other social media URLs, which are not amongst the user profile fields in WP.

    When editing the current user profile, the fields for this data aren't displayed either.

    Please help me!

    Many thanks
    Egor

    Hello Egor,

    You can use “URL” custom field in your registration form to ask for social media link to your user.

    Filed data aren't displayed : You have to assign your registration form for the user role. Please navigate to wpuf-> settings->login/registration and set your registration form for the user role. Please check and let me know.

    Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for your reply Nayem. However, the “URL” custom field creates an extra field on the user profile page. But the default WP field “Facebook profile URL” still remains empty. Does this mean I have to manually move the link to this field into “Facebook profile URL” in order to display social media info in my authors box plugin (WP Biographia in my case)?

    I'd like the data to be automatically entered into the correct WP user profile field – “Facebook profile URL”.

    Is this possible?

    Hello Egor,

    To find the actual meta key of a post you can use “Post meta inspector” Plugin. This plugin will help you to find out the actual meta key. I think you can find the meta key of the default wp facebook profile field and then in the custom filed you can use that meta key to save your data. You can check for this. If not work then i will help you.

    Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
