Qeustions about custom profile fields, database queries etc.
Okay so I’ve grind-ed through a few books on PHP, a number of articles on how WordPress and to some degree Buddypress is structured and handle functions and I hope that in the near future I’ll be able to build some custom themes and even write my own plug-ins
I’m not totally lost right now (compared to where I was) but I’m still a bit unsure.
Is there a function to query the DB for custom fields? I could write the function but the query, password security etc. I assume is handled by some other function…?
When I add a custom profile field (drop-down list) in the registration page through the dashboard it seems to load the value as part of a meta field in wp_signups (in the DB). On activation, where does it go? Does it create a column somewhere because I can’t seem to find it. I want to add extra registration fields that will be used in determining rights and privileges (as well as access) of certain areas.
Also, how can I limit the theme choices of new blogs from registered members? I just want certain themes to be available for certain type of members (business, personal etc.)
Thanks for your time!
