Use custom user fields in the list of users in WordPress


I have installed a plugin in wordpress that allows inserting registration forms for users with custom fields (in my case, "Company" and "CIF")

The insertion of data is done correctly, but I also want to show them in the users section as in the screenshot that I attached:

To do this, I am using the following functions that I add to the file functions.php :

function theme_add_user_company_column( $columns ) {

     $columns['company'] = __( 'Compañía', 'theme' );
     return $columns;
 add_filter( 'manage_users_columns', 'theme_add_user_company_column' );

With this I have created the column that is displayed in Users

function theme_show_user_company_data( $value, $column_name, $user_id ) {

     if( 'company' == $column_name ) {

         return get_user_meta($user_id , 'company', true );
     } // end if

 } // end theme_show_user_zip_code_data
 add_action( 'manage_users_custom_column', 'theme_show_user_company_data', 10, 3 );

With this other I have filled the column with the records that I have entered in the form.

The problem I have is that when trying the same for CIF, the company data stops appearing. I can only show one type of data each time and I do not know why it can be.

The code that you use to create the CIF column is missing. Assuming that it is an exact copy of the one you use for the company column, I think the problem is that you are adding twice the share manage_users_custom_column , with which the second "overwrites" the first ...

I think you would need something like:

function theme_show_user_custom_columns_data( $value, $column_name, $user_id ) {

  if ('company' == $column_name) {
    return get_user_meta($user_id, 'company', true );

  } elseif ('cif' == $column_name) {
    return get_user_meta($user_id, 'cif', true );
add_action( 'manage_users_custom_column', 'theme_show_user_custom_columns_data', 10, 3 );

Anyway, I have not used WordPress for a long time and I could be totally wrong:)

Try the following code:

// Crea las columnas
function column_register_user( $column ) {
    $column['compania'] = 'compania';
    $column['cif'] = 'cif';
    return $column;
add_filter( 'manage_users_columns', 'column_register_user' );

// LLena las columnas con los campos extra
function column_user_table_row( $val, $column_name, $user_id ) {
    switch ($column_name) {
        case 'compania' :
            return get_user_meta( 'compania', $user_id );
        case 'cif' :
            return get_user_meta( 'cif', $user_id );
    return $val;
add_filter( 'manage_users_custom_column', 'column_user_table_row', 10, 3 );
