In this tutorial I am going to show two methods how you can add additional user profile fields in WordPress admin area. In the first one we are not going to use any plugins at all, in the second one – we will do the same, but with the help of my Simple Fields plugin.

The whole tutorial consists of two parts – in the first one I will show you a ready to use function that allows to move media from one site of a multisite network to another, in the second – we will create a custom bulk action for media files.
In this tutorial I will show you step by step how to add a file uploader field to WooCommerce checkout page without any plugins.
