[Plugin: Register Plus] Does registration plus work? (14 posts)

    I'm doing some pre-planning (if it's possible kind of thing) on creating a private area/page on a wordpress site.

    I would like to make a more custom registration page beyond the default one offered by wordpress.

    Is Registration Plus working? From people's comments it seems to be broken. Is there an alternative?

    Thanks.

    I have used it on one website I developed and it did work for the most part. I had some issues with using a field that was supposed to be a date with the date picker. If I remember right, it was saving the data to the wrong field, as I had multiple custom fields added. Besides that, and mixed with theme-my-profile, it worked rather well.

    The verification part is totally broken. One can bypass verification simply by clicking 'lost your password' and resetting the password.

    Also, the HTML of the forms is quite terrible, which makes styling the register page difficult.

    Unfortunately I am not aware of an alternative that does work. The author of this plugin has not responded to any queries, so it seems that if this plugin is to survive, it should be forked by some goodwilling users.

    The author skullbits hasn't updated his author page since SEP 2009... and is likely in hiatus.

    I'm still testing this plugin in 2.9.2. after registering, when I attempt to change my profile custom fields--they do not change. I type in new values and click save button but when the page refreshes... the same values. Once again, cannot understand why this most basic functionality--custom profile fields--cannot be integrated into the core WP software.

    Theme My Login and CIMY User Extra Fields can replace this plugin.

    have found out custom field values are being saved but with the wrong user ID. check usermeta table and you can hand fix.

    ok, fixed the bug.
    go into register_plus.php
    on my copy it's line 1626.

    change from:
    if( $_GET['user_id'] ) $user_ID = $_GET['user_id'];

    to:
    if( !empty($_REQUEST['user_id']) ) $user_ID = $_REQUEST['user_id'];

    you're welcome willpower1 i was hoping it would help someone! codeispoetry above says to use CIMY User Extra User Fields but that's much more complex than this nice plug-in.

    I've experienced some problems with register plus that now I've solved. It is incompatible with plugin named Maintenance mode: as Maintenance Mode was deactivated, register plus works correctly.
    Also Cimy extra user fields has the same problem.

    Thanks bitkahuna - lifesaver!

    I found if( $_GET['user_id'] ) $user_ID = $_GET['user_id']; in two spots... did you change both?
