How to display custom fields in Account

How to add custom account tab

The account menu can be extended with extra tab and fields using a custom code. See example below. The code is based on these hooks:

  • um_account_page_default_tabs_hook - this hook is used to modify and extend the account menu.
  • um_account_content_hook_{$tab_id} - this hook is used to display content for the desired tab, where {$tab_id} is the tab key in the $tabs array.
  • um_submit_account_errors_hook - this hook is used to validate custom fields.
  • um_after_user_account_updated - this hook is used to update custom fields.

Code example

This code adds the 'custom_tab_01' tab with fields 'um_pet', 'um_colors', 'um_multi_select'. You can add your own tabs and fields. Add this code to the functions.php file in the active theme directory. Skip the opening <?php tag.
