[WordPress] How to Add fields in Registration form

Hello Friends,
As you know the popularity of WordPress, clients are asking for customization services in WordPress website. Yesterday i was working with WordPress and I was in need to add few fields in Registration form of WordPress site without affecting WordPress Core files. This benefits when you upgrade the WordPress version, changes will remains and you will not lost the work you had done.

To add extra fields in registration form in WordPress, just place below code in functions.php file of your theme’s folder. It will automatically add new fields below username and email fields in WordPress registration form. Here magic happens…

// This function add form field on registration page

// This function add validation

// This function calls insert entry
add_action('user_register', 'register_extra_fields');

// declare the function
function show_custom_field() {

<label>Name *
<input id="custom_user_name" type="text" size="25" value="<?php echo $_POST['custom_user_name']; ?>" name="custom_user_name"/></label>

<input id="custom_user_phone" type="text" size="25" value="<?php echo $_POST['custom_user_phone']; ?>" name="custom_user_phone"/></label>


// validation function
function check_fields($login, $email, $errors) {
global $custom_user_name, $custom_phone;
if ($_POST['custom_user_name'] == '') {
$errors->add('empty_realname', "<strong>Error:</strong> Please enter Name.");
else {
$custom_user_name = $_POST['custom_user_name'];
$custom_user_phone = $_POST['custom_user_phone'];
// This makes an entry into database amazing...

function register_extra_fields($user_id, $password="", $meta=array())  {
// Gotta put all the info into an array
$userdata = array();
$userdata['ID'] = $user_id;

// Name
$userdata['custom_user_name'] = $_POST['custom_user_name'];

// Phone
$userdata['custom_user_phone'] = $_POST['custom_user_phone'];

// Enters into DB
