Add a file attachment field in the user registration form

I want to add a file attachment field (Required) in the user registration form of the listinghive theme. I have added a custom code using a code snippet in the child theme. I am getting the error that the 'id is required even if I have already uploaded the file.

please help me with this as soon as possible

i have added this code to the code snippet

	function ( $form ) {
		$form['fields'] = array_merge(
				'first_name' => [
					'required' => true,
					'_order'   => 1,

				'last_name'  => [
					'required' => true,
					'_order'   => 2,
				'id'  => [
					'type'=> 'file',
					'format'=>['jpg', 'png', 'gif'],
					'required' => true,
					'_order'   => 123,

		return $form;

	function( $user_id, $values ) {
		if ( isset( $values['first_name'] ) ) {
			update_user_meta( $user_id, 'first_name', $values['first_name'] );

		if ( isset( $values['last_name'] ) ) {
			update_user_meta( $user_id, 'last_name', $values['last_name'] );
		if ( isset( $values['id'] ) ) {
			update_user_meta( $user_id, 'id', $values['id'] );

thanks and regards

Unfortunately there’s no simple snippet for this in the current version, attachments must be assigned to some user ID (the user ID field is required for the Attachment model) but it’s not available on registration. A possible solution is to upload the file temporarily somewhere, and using it in the user register action, saving it for a newly created user profile.

I recommend using a custom Attachment attribute for vendors if this attachment is meant for vendors, they will not be able to save profile form or add a listing without uploading the attachment in this case, and code changes will not be required.

thanks for your valuable guidance, as per your recommendations I have created a custom attachment attribute for vendors.

but I am still having this error

can you please guide me to where I have made a mistake in creating this?

I am sharing the backend attribute screenshot and front-end error screenshot here,


Please try adding vendor-specific fields with attachment type in Vendors/Attributes (if you mark them as Editable and Required, then users who attempt to list something will have to fill them in for their profile).

Hi, try changing the field name to something else. Some words conflict with the programming if it’s already being used elsewhere.


hii… thanks a lot for making my day, :slightly_smiling_face: I got the solution by changing the field name.

have a good day
