Cannot update newly added User field using wp_update_user
I want to add a new attribute to the wp_user table, "twitter_id" for example.
I added the new column to the
wp_user table, and it is added correctly. I get the current user (as I want to edit the value of the logged in user) and the
$user = wp_get_current_user(); $user->twitter_id = "123"; $response = wp_update_user($user);
If I echo out $user->twitter_id, it properly shows the updated value, but the DB does not update.
if I change
twitter_id to an existing field, the db is updated with the above code just fine.
How do I update custom fields?
