Front-End Only Users

A customizable plugin lets users sign up to the front end only of your site with shortcodes for registration, login, profile editing forms and more.

Front-End Users Demo

This plugin allows visitors to sign up as users on the front-end on any page of your website. It is completely customizable using CSS and is easily personalized with the use of shortcodes. These shortcodes can be used to insert registration, login, or profile editing forms on any page of your website and to restrict content. Users are created in separate tables so that they have no access to the back-end of your site. Create different fields for members to fill out and customize content based on their profiles. Customize forms with CSS to suit your needs using the Admin panel.

Ideal for paid content, membership, dating sites and more!
