A31 User Attributes / Channels on DB

Page no: A31


When we create new attributes in the User GUI, we create new social channels.

This is by our Follow Author Pro Plugin.


This table describes the fields used by different plugins on the WP Usermeta tables. Hence a combination of

  • Meta_Key: The name of the new attribute
  • Meta_value: One value of the new attribute

For each new attribute value, we need a combination of a meta_key and one meta_value.

For our plugins, there must be GUI screenshots for the new  meta ID.

For other plugins we can combine several attributes into one screenshot




WordPress uses the table WP_Usermeta for additional fields that plugins may need for user tables.


Usually one row per attribute,
