WP-Members
[resolved] How to allow users/subscribers to view and edit their registration information? (4 posts)

    Hi-

    I have wp-members set up, added new fields, and registered users, works great. But whenever I login as a user (in the subscriber role) into the backend so they can access their profile, the WP-Members Additional Fields section does not show up. That is to say, they cannot view or edit any of the registration fields that they filled out from the registration page. Is there a way to toggle this section to make it viewable/editable by users?

    I can however view the WP-Members Additional Fields section when I'm logged in as an admin.

    The plugin actually provides this process (and other user management functions like forgotten password) available via the frontend. This is done through the members area (under "Additional Settings and Information" here).

    If you want your users to be able to edit via the backend (WP admin panel), you would need to make some slight changes. In order to make certain aspects of the plugin lighter (i.e. not loading necessary functions when they are not needed), the admin functions are not loaded unless the logged in user has a role that can edit users (which generally a subscriber cannot). This can be changed in the main plugin file wp-members.php by changing (or removing) the conditional statement that loads the admin file.

    Thank you! The members area actually works better than what I was thinking.
