    Hi,

    I am building a private, invitation only, web site. I wish to allow current members of a certain membership level to create accounts for new people (using only first name, last name, email address of the soon to be member). The basic idea is that the existing user creates a low level account and an automated email goes to the invitee. Then, the invitee clicks a link to a their profile page and completes additional fields. On submit, the account is upgraded and they are granted access to additional content.

    I tried using a registration form but it won't allow a logged in member to use those forms. Is there a way to permit logged in users to complete a registration form and not affect their own account?

    Thanks

    i don't think so you will be able to do this, as it will require to do highly customisation and surely you have to modify WordPress core files.

    You may check WordPress plugin repo for a solution.

    Thanks for your reply. I had already checked available plugins and didn't find anything that suited my needs.

    I should add that I am using the “WP emember” membership plugin. I have now determined that I am able to register other users when I am logged in IF I deactivate WP Frontend User. Now that we know that to be the case, is there something I can change in the plugin code to prevent the error?

    Thanks again!

    UPDATE: After further testing I have discovered that I can register the new user while logged in and with WP Frontend User activated as long as I don't use the WPUF shortcode on my registration page and use the WP eMember shortcode instead. This will work for me.

    Thanks!
