shortcode – wpv-user-reg-date

The shortcode [wpv-user field=”user_registered”] displays the registration date of a WP User, but it doesn’t accept the “format” attribute, so the result is always Y-m-d G:i:s (ex: 2019-09-28 13:17:08).

It is possible to use a custom shortcode to change the date format and display, for example, “User since SEPTEMBER 2019”:

// wpv-user-reg-date shortcode
add_shortcode( 'wpv-user-reg-date', 'format_reg_date_func');
function format_reg_date_func($atts)
  $user_id = $atts['userid'];
  $format = $atts['format'];
  $reg_date = date($format, strtotime(get_userdata($user_id)->user_registered));
  return $reg_date;

Then I can use this shortcode anywhere passing the “format” attribute:

[wpv-user-reg-date userid="" format="m/d/Y"]
