  1. Thanks for reading this article – I hope you found it helpful.

    I wanted to let you know about our new WordPress survey plugin that allows you to build interactive polls and surveys within minutes. You also get best-in-class reporting, so you can make data-driven decisions.

    You can get it 100% free when you purchase WPForms Pro plan.

  2. Hey, does this sync with the Ultimate Member plugin?

    I would like a multi-page, post payment, onboarding type form that inputs data directly from the form onto the ultimate member profile page.

    Any info appreciated.

    1. Good question, William!

      While we don’t have an official integration with the Ultimate Member plugin, most aspects should work together with WPForms. I tested the WPForms User Registration addon with Ultimate Member and confirmed that WPForms does work to register new members, and displays the info on their Ultimate Member profile page.

      And yes, you can use WPForms to create multi-page user registration forms with payments using our WPForms PayPal or Stripe addons. With the PayPal addon, the payment will be processed after the form is submitted. With the Stripe addon, you could add the credit card field to the first page of your multi-page form, but the payment will be processed once the whole form is submitted.

      You can set up your user registration form so that you can manually approve all new members, or you can set it up so that new members can activate their own accounts through clicking an email confirmation link.

      Feel free to get in touch if you have any other questions!

  3. I like the styling on the WPForms login page, but I would like to add the options below:

    It is possible to add other fields like a remember me checkbox and a forgot password link?

    For example using a wp_login_form() output, we would need to add something like this to get the lost password functionality. Do WPForm users need to edit this through FTP or can it be done using the WP setup/settings?

    add_action( ‘login_form_middle’, ‘add_lost_password_link’ );
    function add_lost_password_link() {
    return ‘Lost Password?‘;
    }

    1. Thank you, Andrew!

      By default, Remember Me is automatically set, so there’s no checkbox. At some point, we’ll be adding a feature to make this optional, in case you don’t want it set.

      A “Forgot password” link can be added to the password description field using the {url_lost_password} smart tag. Here’s an example:

      reset password smart tag

      If you have any questions or need any help setting this up, you can open a support ticket & we’ll be happy to help! πŸ™‚

  4. Hi, I’ve added a Password Reset link, as per above, but it shows up in WP. This will confuse people as they’re taken away from our site.

    How can we create a ‘Lost Password / Password Reset’ function so the user is kept within our site?

    Thanks,

    1. Hi Simon,

      I can understand why this page would feel out of place to your users. We don’t currently offer a lost password form to replace the default one in WordPress, but you could consider replacing the WordPress logo on this page with your own to help your visitors know they’re in the right place. Here’s a tutorial from WPBeginner that shares how to do that.

      Or, if you’d like to make this page look even more custom, you could opt for this other option on WPBeginner. While they’re discussing the login page in that article, I tested that plugin out and the styles were applying to the lost password page as well — without the need for any code.

      I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

  5. Does your add-on or plugin allow us to adapt the Registration process to prevent finalization of the new user account until the email address is verified? Basically we want the Registration Form to add the user unverified (and therefore unable to login yet, no Role either). Then we send a custom email notification to them with a link back to the site. This link could/should contain a one time ‘code’ in the URL of the link. So arriving at the site again via this link will verify the email address and then activate the account (maybe even add a Role). If this is not a built in feature, does your plugin provide any ability to build in or add-on these requirements in some way?

    1. Hi Jeremy,

      Yes, you can absolutely require this — WordPress refers to it as User Activation. We have settings to require user activation through either the user clicking a link in an email, as you described, or manual approval by the site’s admin. Here’s a screenshot that shows these settings in a form builder.

      For more details on registration setup options, I’d recommend our tutorial: How to Create a User Registration Form in WordPress.

      I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please get in touch πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Shelley,

      Great question — by default in WordPress, only users with the admin user role are allowed to delete users from a site. WPForms doesn’t have any control over this, but you should be able to adjust these rules by following the steps described in this tutorial from WPBeginner.

      The plugin described there (Capability Manager Enhanced) lets you easily change what different user roles are allowed to do without touching code.

      I hope this helps! πŸ™‚

      1. Hi Luke,

        Yes, our plugin and all addons should work just fine on multisite. Just like with a standard install, registered users will only have access to that one site (not the entire network).

        When installing our plugin or addons on multisite, I’d recommend that you 1) install at network level, then 2) activate within individual site/s (rathaer than network activating). This tends to make testing easier in the long run.

        I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please get in touch! πŸ™‚

  6. Hi.
    In the screenshots I can’t see the option to customize the activation email. Is there an option to do that?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Veronika,

      We don’t currently have a built-in option for customizing the activation email, however we do share the code to accomplish this in this tutorial.

      I hope this helps!

  7. Hi Team,

    I’m a new customer and would appreciate some help.

    How do I setup a form that is only available to registered users?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Ben,

      We don’t currently have a built-in way to restrict form access, though this is on our feature request list to consider down the road.

      However, there are additional plugins that will allow you to do this (here’s a popular option). With a plugin like this, you’ll be able to restrict access to either a whole page or just the part of a page with a form on it.

      I hope this helps! πŸ™‚

  8. I have created a multi-page user registration form with many different fields. Is it possible to use WP Forms to allow users to change the information collected by that registration form? Preferably through the front end, with a profile type page? Thank you!

    1. Hi Derrick,

      We don’t currently have a way to edit user profiles on the front end, however our user registration forms send user data directly to the native WordPress users table. This means that these details can be edited within the admin area. For users with a subscriber role, for example, a Profile tab is generally all that’s visible outside of the dashboard (here’s a screenshot of what subscribers typically see).

      Hope this helps! πŸ™‚

  9. Hello,

    Is it possible to automatically have username (or userID) populated into the form? The forms I have are all restricted to be able to be seen by logged in users only. I would like the form to automatically grab the username/ID on submission.

    1. Hi Chris,

      Sure, you can easily auto-fill details like this for logged in users with Smart Tags. If you check out our Smart Tag tutorial, you’ll find options for User ID, User Display Name, and a bunch of other useful options.

      I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

  10. Hi

    Is there a way to add social media registration along with the registration form and also social login option for the login form?

    1. Hi Prasanth,

      We don’t currently have social media integration like this, but I’ve noted it on our feature request list for future consideration. Thanks for the suggestion! πŸ™‚

  11. Hi Jess

    The User Registration email verification and payment required (via Stripe/Paypal addons) stages are great. We are going to run a subscription service. Is the payment addon queried when the user logs-in to determine if they are valid or lapsed?

    1. Hi Alan,

      While the Stripe addon will note if a recurring payment is unsuccessful (so this could be handled manually), this is not currently connected to additional functionality such as the User Registration addon. What you’re describing is generally considered a membership tool, common in membership-specific plugins.

      I hope this clarification helps! If you have any additional questions, please let us know πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Maysan,

      I apologize for the trouble with this! The login form isn’t currently visible in a preview since you’re already a logged in user. To view a login form, you’d instead need to embed the form on a page and then view that page as a logged out visitor (rather than logging out, I prefer to view the page in a different browser or in an incognito window).

      I hope this helps! If you have additional questions, please know that for faster and more detailed support, we recommend contacting our support team.

      Thanks! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Nur,

      We don’t have a way to do this right now, but I’ve made a note on our feature request list so we can keep it on our radar! Thanks for the suggestion πŸ™‚

  12. Hi, We have created a registration form with manual approval.
    But when we manual approve an email there is no email send to the user.

    Is there a way to have this automated?
    It would be logical that the user gets an email if approved.

    Can you help us?

    thanks!
    Gille

    1. Hi Gille,

      We don’t have a way to do this right now, but I’ve made a note on our feature request list so we can keep it on our radar! Thanks for the suggestion πŸ™‚

  13. I am an experience WordPress developer.
    Have one Q!
    On WordPress multisite, when users register on my site they have to write their info(sitename, site title).
    So then can I use this plugin for multisite registration section?
    If this is possible, I will purchase this plugin.
    I wanna about this…
    Please answer my Q.

    1. Hi Song,

      I’m afraid I’m not quite clear on what you’re trying to do. Our plugin will work on a multi-site but if a user submits a registration form via our plugin, it will not automatically register them for all sites in your network.

      I hope this helps. If not, please feel free to reach out and clarify. Thanks!

  14. I have a wordpress theme and i would like to ensure that only logged in users are able to perform certain functions or access certain pages. is this something WP form pro can perform?

    1. Hi Dominic,

      Currently WPForms doesn’t have a feature to restrict access to site pages based on logged in status but there are a number of alternate ways to restrict page access, but here are a couple of popular options (both free plugins on WordPress.org):

      Restrict Content – Simply hide content unless a user is logged in

      Shortcodes Ultimate – Hide content with a note asking users to log in; they have tons of additional options, but here’s a demo of their “Members” shortcode.

      I hope this helps!
