Add some useful fields to registration and user's info
I want to manually approve my user signups to prevent spam. But the way it was, with just the email, I really had no way to tell who was signing up in order to approve them. With the ability to add first name and last name or anything else, I think it is a bit more of a deterrent for spammers and also I can get a feeling of who is signing up.
I am well versed in coding but this plugin is an ugly mess. There are no guides, the plugin creates duplicate field, there is no way to display a field as required(cant add asterisk), so much complexity for something that could be done simpler and neater as shown by other plugins. Also the author of the plugin is rude and unhelpful, uninstalled.
I am extremely happy with how simple the plugin can be, if only careful attention is paid to detail. It seemed first that Marco the author could be really impatient with support if you read the supports, but if you are willing to sincerely go through the information he has provided he will definitely fix your issue as much as he can.
I do believe that he could make his documentation a little more "dummy" but thats okay!
The Plugin is fantastic and adds extra fields so easily!!! :D
Works well! Would be great to be able to implement it to pages as shortcode. Great work!
This one of the most usefull plugins. I use it in combination with Theme my Login.
You can do most things flawless with this, but there are some disadvantages in the usability... but for free its definetly a 5/5!
Thank you for this great plugin!
It's always a bit hard to jugde a plugin, which is free. But this one is really an ugly nightmare. I installed it to add an avatar upload thorugh registration, but this feature is broken. So I deinstalled Cimy User Extra Fields and coded it by hand.
Unfortunately their are a lot of database-entries and folders left, after uninstalling.
I would recommend everybody to use Register redux, pie register or code it by hand (which is not that much to do).
It's a great plugin BUT VERY VERY VERY bad explained for no informatic persons.
I'm using Cimy's plugin to add extra pertinent fields that are also categorized for private profiles via 'WP User Frontend' plugin and a mix of my own development features and extra plugins. I've used other types of plugins that offer similar features (like 'S2Member'), but this one seems to have the basics down pat with database organization, structure and simplicity ('S2' is excellent in its own right and I use it frequently, but it's a little too cumbersome for many of the simpler projects out there). If you're looking for an excellent database solution that allows you to easily create new profile fields and categorize them while also allowing you to customize the individual profile fields through the database via PHPMyAdmin, etc. (which is just the start), then 'Cimy user Extra Fields' is an excellent solution (and works well with other plugins too)! - Good job man!
this plugin make my work so easy to do
