Now that Joomla 3.7 supports custom fields, can anyone point me to documentation or a YouTube video that outlines how to customize user registration? I assume that additional work is also required to view these fields in user management in the administrative view? If so, what needs to be done?


As of now Content & Contact components are supporting custom fields.

    That documentation is incorrect. I just checked and fields are supported in user management. Unfortunately it doesn't appear that the user profile plugin was updated to support fields. I'm guessing that I'll need to a custom user profile plugin. I was hoping that someone has had some experience with this new feature and could impart their knowledge to save me time and from re-inventing the wheel. – nimble Sep 9 '17 at 15:54
