Registration & Profile

1. Can users edit their profile from frontend?

Yes, this is a built in feature of WP User Frontend Pro. Users can edit their complete profile including changing profile pictures from frontend. Even the custom fields will appear on the frontend profile!

2. Can I charge the users for signing up on my site?

Yes, WP User Frontend has built in feature for charging the users while signing up. But this system charges the user for creating posts, NOT for just signing up on your site. If you want to charge your users for registering and creating posts differently, then it is not possible. You have to custom code it by hiring a developer.

3. Can users upload files while registering?

Yes, you can use any element while building the registration form, including, image and all kind of WordPress permitted files.

4. Is it possible to add the newly registered users to my subscriber list?

5. Can current users edit/upload profile picture?

Yes, logged in users can update their profile picture from edit profile page that contains profile form shortcode.

You have to enable membership option from wp-admin > Settings > General. Now, check on the front-end, user can register using front-end registration form.

9. Where does the user registration and profile information saves?

It's just the standard user meta fields. They are saved with meta_key you provide. You can pull the information by this: <?php echo get_user_meta( $user_id, ‘meta_key', true ); ?>

10. After a user register, I would like them to be auto logged in. Do I need to write my own function, or does wp user front end have a built in function?

To do this you just need to enable Auto Login After Registration option from wp-admin > User Frontend > Settings > Login/Registration.

Include the following lines of code toward the end of your functions.php, which is located in your theme folder.

</span><span>
</span><span>// User will redirect to a specific page (defined here) after login</span><span>
</span><span>function wpuf_custom_login_redirect( $redirect ) {</span><span>
</span><span>    return $redirect = '<a href="https://wedevs.com">https://wedevs.com</a>';</span><span>
</span><span>}</span><span>

15. How can users edit their own profile information on the front-end?

Create a new page by adding [[wpuf_account]] shortcode and save the page. It will allow users to edit their profile from the front-end, but it has limited fields. If you want to keep the edit profile page same according to the registration form you created, then just copy a profile type registration form shortcode  (e.g: [wpuf_profile type=”profile” id=”15″] ) and add it by creating a new page. That page will contain all the fields of the registration form and the user can update their profile information.
