Ultimate Member comes with a few predefined select options for some of the fields. In most cases, these options are enough. However, if you need to customize these options here’s a quick tip on how to customize Ultimate Member select options.

Firstly, you will need to use custom code, so we need to first find a place for the code. If you are using a child-theme then you can the code there. If not, you can create a custom plugin to store these.

 

Adding an extra country to select options

function um_add_extra_countries( $countries = array() ) {
	// Add new countries as options
	$countries['CW'] = __( 'Curacao' );
	$countries['BQ'] = __( 'Bonaire' );

	// Re-arrange array by key.
	ksort( $countries );

	// Return the countries.
	return $countries;	
}
add_filter( 'um_countries_predefined_field_options', 'um_add_extra_countries', 12, 1 );

You can also do something similar to the languages options with the following code

Adding an extra language to select options

function um_add_extra_languages( $languages = array() ) {
	// Add new languages as options
	$languages['pt'] = __( 'Patoi' );

	// Re-arrange array by key.
	ksort( $languages );

	// Return the languages.
	return $languages;
}
add_filter( 'um_languages_predefined_field_options', 'um_add_extra_languages', 12, 1 );

The end result will give you an option as seen in this image

Removing a country from Ultimate Member select options

If you would like to remove a country via the code, you can do the following

function um_add_extra_countries( $countries = array() ) {
	// Unset the option from the array
	unset( $countries['AX'] );

	// Return the countries.
	return $countries;	
}
add_filter( 'um_countries_predefined_field_options', 'um_add_extra_countries', 12, 1 );

Looking for a list of keys for the countries and languages, check out the Ultimate Member github class.
