Get values from registration form

  • Hi,

    I have added some custom fields to the WordPress registration form. When a user registered I wan’t to generate a post how can I get the values from the registration form? For example I would like to retrieve the company field and assign it to the post title.

    function create_new_user_posts($user_id){
        if (!$user_id>0)
        $my_distributor_post = array(
        	'post_type' => 'distributer_search',
            'post_title' => 'custom field company',
            'post_content' => '',
            'post_status' => 'draft',
            'post_author' => $user_id,
        // Insert the post into the database
        $contact = wp_insert_post( $my_contact_post );
        update_user_meta($user_id,'_distributor_post', $distributor);
  • If your create_new_user_posts() function above works, try adding the below to your code; substitute your field keys and post type.

    function pre_save_company_name($post_id){
      if( empty($_POST['acf']) ) { return; }
      $company = $_POST['acf']['THE COMPANY NAME FIELD KEY'];
      return $company;
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'pre_save_company_name', 21);
    function company_name_as_post_title( $data, $postarr ) {
        if ( ! $postarr['ID'] ) return $data;
        if ( $postarr['post_type'] !== 'YOUR POST TYPE' ) return $data;
        $post_id = $postarr['ID'];
        $company = pre_save_company_name($post_id);
        if( empty($company) ) { return $data; }  
        $data['post_title'] = $company;
        return $data;
    add_filter( 'wp_insert_post_data', 'company_name_as_post_title', 99, 2 );
  • Thanks for your response I managed to to solve this by doing the following

    $user_company = get_field('reg_company_name', 'user_' . $user_id);

    $my_distributor_post = array(
        	'post_type' => 'distributer_search',
            'post_title' => '$user_company',
            'post_content' => '',
            'post_status' => 'draft',
            'post_author' => $user_id,

    This works because the post is generated after the user is created.
