How To Add Custom WordPress User Profile Fields

Ever wondered how to add that piece of extra information about the users in your WordPress site? Fear no more! Bellow is a very easy code to implement in your functions.php file that will allow you to add any and every type of information you want to save about your users.

// CUSTOM USER PROFILE FIELDS
   function my_custom_userfields( $contactmethods ) {

    // ADD CONTACT CUSTOM FIELDS
    $contactmethods['contact_phone_office']     = 'Office Phone';
    $contactmethods['contact_phone_mobile']     = 'Mobile Phone';
    $contactmethods['contact_office_fax']       = 'Office Fax';

    // ADD ADDRESS CUSTOM FIELDS
    $contactmethods['address_line_1']       = 'Address Line 1';
    $contactmethods['address_line_2']       = 'Address Line 2 (optional)';
    $contactmethods['address_city']         = 'City';
    $contactmethods['address_state']        = 'State';
    $contactmethods['address_zipcode']      = 'Zipcode';
    return $contactmethods;
   }
   add_filter('user_contactmethods','my_custom_userfields',10,1);

Now in order to display those newly added custom filds there are 2 possible methods:

Option 1:

the_author_meta('facebook', $current_author->ID)

Option 2:

<?php $current_author = get_userdata(get_query_var('author')); ?>
<p><a href="<?php echo esc_url($current_author->contact_phone_office);?>" title="office_phone"> Office Phone</a></p>
