Recently I came across the need to add additional user meta fields for user profiles. The plugins out there seemed to offer too many features and confusion. All I needed was 1 field anyway. What I found worked, but I tweaked it a bit more for my liking. So I thought I’d share it with you.
Recently I was talking with a friend who is opening a restaurant. He mentioned a simple restaurant site (Seven Sows) and how easy his colleague said it was to manage. Curious as I am I looked it up (I also made some reservations) to find out what platform the site was built on.

One of the greatest things about WordPress plugins and themes is the ability to add shortcodes to do something fancy to your post content. Introduced in version 2.5, shortcodes are a simple set of functions for creating macro codes for use in post content. The most common of these is of course the gallery shortcode.
It enables plugin developers to create special kinds of content (e.g. forms, content generators) that users can attach to certain pages by adding the corresponding shortcode into the page text.
