Create plugin folder structure

If you like, you can put all these snippets below to function.php of active theme. However I would strongly recommend you to put it to a WordPress Plugin so that you can reuse, share and maintain it with ease.

I name my plugin as “woocommerce-registration-custom-fields” so I create folder with same name and inside it. I also create couple of sub folders (follows WordPress Plugin best practice).

  • admin
  • includes
  • languages
  • public

In this article, I only use root folder (i.e. woocommerce-registration-custom-fields) and “includes”. In root folder, I create “woocommerce-registration-custom-fields.php” and it looks like this
