How to make Vendor registration fields required

Hi ihor, you said— "If you add at least 1 required vendor attribute or make any of the existing fields required (e.g. first/last name, using a code snippet) then there will be 2 steps: login/registration and “complete profile”

  1. Do you have an example of the code snippet to use?
  2. Where would I add the code snippet in Word Press?
  3. Do I need a new plugin to add the code snippet to?
  4. How do I add additional fields/data points to the registration form?
    4a. Where would those data points be stored within WordPress?

Thank you!

I found this, but it didn’t work for my page. Any thoughts as to why?

// Make First name and Last name fields required.
	function( $form ) {
			$form['fields']['first_name']['required'] = true;
			$form['fields']['last_name']['required'] = true;	

		return $form;
// Make Image field required.
	function( $errors, $form ) {
		$user = $form->get_model();

		if ( $user && ! $user->get_image__id() && current_user_can('edit_posts') ) {
			$errors[] = 'Please upload the profile image.';

		return $errors;


  1. Yes, these are the correct snippets.

2, 3. Please try following these instructions How to add custom code snippets - HivePress Help Center

  1. You can add custom vendor fields (attributes) in Vendors/Attributes section, e.g. mark them as Editable and Required. The storage depends on the attribute type, e.g. text attributes are stored in wp_postmeta, while selectable attributes are stored in wp_terms database table.

Please test this as a new user, if there’s at least 1 required field, then an extra Complete Profile step will appear in the listing process.

This solved my problem! Thank you ihor!
