Install & Activate Advanced Custom Fields


Ultimate Member currently doesn't have custom field builders for User Forms in WP-admin > Users> Edit Profile. That is why you'll be needing a third-party plugin. We have found a plugin that may support some custom fields to sync with Ultimate Member form fields, the  Advanced Custom Fields. 

Sync UM user profile fields with Advanced Custom Fields for WP-Admin > Users > Edit Profile form.

Install Advanced Custom Fields 

To install the Advanced Custom Fields, go to wp-admin>Plugins > Add New > Search Advanced Custom Fields>Click Install Now.

Once installed, the button will change. Click the Activate button. After clicking "activate," it will take you to your plugins.

Once the "Deactivate" appears under the plugin name, the plugin is activated.

Advanced Custom Fields Setup

Adding Field Groups

To add a new field group, go to wp-admin> Custom Fields Menu>Click Add New Button.

In the Add New Field Group, you can set up your new Field Group. You can add a title for the Field Group; in this example, we used "Billing Address" as the title. 

You can make multiple fields under it. Click the  + Add Field button to create a field. Setup your field by filling out the following:

The supported field types in Advanced Custom Fields that you can sync with UM fields are  Text field, Text Area, Checkbox, Select/Drop Down, Radio Field, URL Field, and Email Fields.

Note:  Field Name should match the meta key in UM Forms Field settings.

UM > Forms > Select Form Type> Edit Form> Form Builder> Edit Field

Below your fields, you'll find the Location. You can create a set of rules to determine which edit screens will use these advanced custom fields. 

Note: Location rules must show this field group if the User Form is equal to all.

Once you have finished setting up your fields, don't forget to publish/save them.

The created fields will now appear in the  UM User > edit profile.

To test if your fields are syncing with UM User Profile and Admin User Profile. Go to admin Users>Profile and Update the information in the field group you have made, and click update profile.

Check the user's profile on your site. If the user's information has been updated with the same information you have entered in wp-admin>Users>Profile, then it means that it is working well.
