multiple registrations

    The ability to have multiple registration forms for different user roles (ie. serve subscribers a different registration form then authors).

    And to go hand-in-hand with that: the ability to serve different user profiles (ie. extra profile fields for authors which subscribers don't get on their profile page).

    Btw, a (Dutch) 'demo' of what I mean can be found on my WordPress Ontwerpers website. There I have three types of accounts: WPOntwerper (for WP designers and developers), WPOverkoepel (for organisations that delegate WP work to others) and WPUser (for people that only use WP and don't design/develop for it). Right now I've somewhat hacked the registration method of WP:

    • When you go to the default registration page it now gives the message that you have to register yourself on the website (so the default registration form won't get displayed);
    • I have three registration pages: WPOntwerper, WPOverkoepel and WPUser
    • I've added a Profile (template) page to make sure that even on the profile page they get the profile fields their user role should get

    The nasty thing of this all is that when I (with the Register Plus plugin) select a field being required, it's required for all roles (and not all fields are for all roles).

    I can see this being useful in a lot more situations.

    How did you go about having different registration page templates for the WPuser and the other ones? I am trying to make a similar set up. thanks!

    Since I don't get any feedback on replies from WP I haven't seen your reply sooner.

    At the moment I use three different page templates as forms for the registrations. Alse made my own page templates for the frontend of the website to make the users maintain the fields that I want attached to that particular role (WPUser, WPOntwerper and WPOverkoepel).

    I don't (yet) need something like that, but I think is a great idea and, indeed, might be useful in many contexts.

    About the required fields, how did you manage? Dummies values?

    I agree - there needs to be a way to creeate multiple registration pages by user type - or at lease a drop down selection in the registration form
