How to Add / Remove Contact Info in WordPress Profile Page

Snippets by IsItWP

Would you like to customize the Contact Info details in your WordPress edit profile page? The Contact Info section is missing some important contact details, like Twitter and Facebook. To add or remove fields from this section, just add the following to your functions.php.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function new_contactmethods( $contactmethods ) {
    $contactmethods['twitter'] = 'Twitter'; // Add Twitter
    $contactmethods['facebook'] = 'Facebook'; // Add Facebook
    unset($contactmethods['yim']); // Remove YIM
    unset($contactmethods['aim']); // Remove AIM
    unset($contactmethods['jabber']); // Remove Jabber

    return $contactmethods;
