I’m trying to create my own registration form and adding phone number as required field and I would love to save that phone number as custom user meta.

After validation and santizing inputs, ets. my code looks like this:

// this returns the correct value etc. - string(9) "126777889"
var_dump($metas['user_phone'])

$user_id = wp_insert_user($fields);
add_user_meta( $user_id, 'user_phone', $metas['user_phone'] );

The user is created correctly, but there is something wrong with the phone meta field – in backend it looks like this:

I also tried this approach to test whether the meta exists:

if(get_user_meta($user_id,'user_phone')) {
    update_user_meta($user_id,'user_phone');
} else {
    add_user_meta($user_id,'user_phone');    
}

Also tried to add the meta with ‘user_register’ action like this:

function addMyCustomMeta($user_id,$meta) {
    update_user_meta($user_id,$meta);
}
add_action('user_register','addMyCustomMeta',10,2,);

And then using like this:

$user_id = wp_insert_user($fields);
do_action('addMyCustomMeta',$user_id,$metas['user_phone']);

In all cases I end up with the situation described in the picture above.
No meta title and the value is saved as multiple “Array”

Do you have any idea what am I doing wrong?

Thank you
