In your 'User Explorer' there is data stating "Login from United Kingdom"
How can I save this country data into the users wordpress profile when they log in to my site?
you can start with a hook like this:
The data that you are looking for is in
The following code works when registering a new user, though I wonder is it possible to update the country field every time a user logs in?
// Handle data retrieved from a social network profile
function oa_social_login_store_extended_data ($user_data, $identity)
// $user_data is an object that represents the newly added user
// The format is similar to the data returned by $user_data = get_userdata ($user_id);
// $identity is an object that contains the full social network profile
$userid = $user_data->ID;
$gender = $identity->gender;
$birthday = $identity->birthday;
// $locale = $identity->currentLocation;
$logincountry = $identity->loginLocation->country->short;
// Store the gender
update_user_meta ($userid, 'wpcf-user-demographic-gender', $gender);
// Store The Birthday
update_user_meta ($userid, 'wpcf-user-demographic-birthday', $birthday);
// Store The Country
update_user_meta ($userid, 'wpcf-user-demographic-locale', $logincountry);
// This action is called whenever Social Login adds a new user
add_action ('oa_social_login_action_after_user_insert', 'oa_social_login_store_extended_data', 10, 2);
for this you can use the following action/hook:
In the variable
you can also find other properties like for example the ip address or the full country name.
Great, that's looks like it's worked so I have just one more question...
If I understand correctly this country data is taken from the IP, which is outside of the social network being logged into?
I ask so that I know how to define our web privacy terms and app requests from facebook.
Yes, the country is based on the IP address.
