Front-End Only Users

Description

Front-End Users Demo

Front-End Only Users is a user management and membership plugin that allows admins to restrict access to portions of their websites. Simply insert the registration shortcode below on any page to create a registration form, allowing visitors to sign up as users on the front end of your site.

[register]

** We are pleased to announce the introduction of a free new premium 7-day trial feature, which users can choose to test out before buying the premium version! **

Key Features

  • Customizable membership fields
  • Pure CSS-styled front-end login form, registration form and edit profile form
  • Supports all input types for user fields, allowing you to create a custom user profile
  • Include different user membership levels and restrict content accordingly
  • Option to send sign-up emails and to require admin approval of users
  • User input-based redirects

Signing up can either require a one-time paid membership, recurring monthly or annual membership payments, or it can be free. The users are separate from the standard WordPress users, so they have no access to the back end of your site. User management is simple and effective, with different user levels available.

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

Front-End Only Users is completely customizable using CSS and is easily personalized. The available shortcodes can be used to insert registration forms, login forms, edit profile forms and many more forms on any page of your website. You can also make use of shortcodes to restrict content to users who are logged in and even to specific user levels.

[login]

Insert this shortcode on any page to display a login form, allowing users to log in to access restricted content.

[restricted]Content to restrict goes here[/restricted]

Any content placed between these restricted shortcodes will only be shown to users who are logged in.

Create different fields for members to fill out and customize content based on their profiles. Use shortcodes to display user profiles or allow visitors to search current users. Customize forms with CSS to suit your needs using the Admin panel.

Includes paid membership and user level features to restrict different portions of your site to different user groups (those you have signed up, those who have paid, etc.). This level of user management makes it easy to monetize your content and segment your users!

Type any shortcode name and help (ex:[login help) in any WordPress page to get a complete list of the shortcode’s attributes.

  • Personalize the experience of your site with the [user-data] shortcode
  • UTF-8 support
  • Front end features: user registration form, login form, edit user profile form, account management, user listings or searches, user profiles and more!
  • Back end user management features: add new fields, add new users, create and assign user levels, email settings and options
  • One-click installer to quickly set up the basic pages and functionality
  • Available public functions for total control and conditional behavior (some programming experience suggested)

  • Different registration forms depending on user level, option to let users select their own level
  • Add a captcha to the registration form
  • Access to the one-click installer, which lets you create all of the pages necessary for a user membership site with one click

What’s the complete list of plugin shortcodes?
  • Register Form: [register]
  • Login Form: [login]
  • Logout Form:[logout]
  • Toggle:[login-logout-toggle]
  • Edit Profile Form: [edit-profile]
  • Edit Account Information: [account-details]

Type the shortcode name and help (ex:[login help) in any WordPress page to get a complete list of the shortcode’s attributes.

How do I add fields for my users to fill out?

On the admin page, go to the “Fields” tab. After creating fields, you can drag and drop them to change their order.

How do I restrict content for logged-in or non-logged-in users?

You can use the [restricted] shortcode to block sections from non-logged in users, as well as to block other sections from logged-in members.

To block content from non-logged in visitors, you’d simply wrap the content in [restricted][/restricted] tags:

[restricted]Content goes here[/restricted]

To block a portion of content from logged in users, it would looks like:

[restricted block_logged_in=’Yes’]Content goes here[/restricted]

For either tag, you can suppress the message that appears for blocked users if you want to hide content seamlessly by adding “no_message=’Yes'” so:

[restricted no_message=’Yes’]Content goes here[/restricted]

How do I redirect based on a user field?

You need to add the following attributes to your [login] or [register] shortcodes: ‘redirect_field’: the field the redirect is based off of (ex. Gender) and ‘redirect_array_string’: a comma separated list of pages to redirect to (ex. Male => http: //ManPage.com, Female => http: //WomanPage.com)

How do I display a user’s first name on a page?

You can use the [user-data field_name=’First Name’] shortcode, assuming that you called your field “First Name” for a user’s first name.

How do I approve an user?

Click on the user you want to approve to see their details and there should be a radio button at the top of the page to approve the user.

How do I restrict content based on the privilege levels?

To restrict content to a certain level(X) your shortcode would be: [restricted level=’X’]…content[/restricted]
For all levels above “X” level: [restricted minimum_level=’X’]…content[/restricted]
For all levels below “X” level: [restricted maximum_level=’X’]…content[/restricted]

Once a user registers their information, is there a way to redirect them to a page that will have further instructions?

You can add the attribute ‘redirect_page’ to the register tag to send newly registered users to a new page: [register redirect_page=’http://www.example.com’]

When I go on the profile page, I see “You must be logged in to access this page.” even though I’m already logged in. How can I fix this?

Check the “Options” page, and make sure that ‘Login Time’ isn’t blank. If it’s blank, then you’re only logged in for a second. Anything non-blank and higher than 0 should solve the problem.

Is it possible to not the show message: “Sorry, this content is only for those whose FIELD is FIELD-value”?

You can add the attribute [no_message=’Yes’] to your shortcode, so it would look something like this: [restricted field_name=’Name’ field_value=’Alex’ no_message=’Yes”/restricted]

Is there a way to indicate to users that they are logged in? I know this can be added to a page using ‘user-data’, but is there a way to add it to the page header?

You could add the [user-data] tag to your header file and wrap it in restricted tags so that only logged in users can see it.

I can’t seem to find an option that requires a user to confirm his email upon registration. How do I add this feature?

To add the confirmation link to the email, you need to include the shortcode [confirmation-link] inside the body of your e-mail.

How do I use the forgot password shortcode?

You would want to create a separate page with the [forgot-password] shortcode, and then another page with the ‘confirm-forgot-password’ shortcode on it. For the [forgot-password] shortcode, you would then add an attribute ‘reset_email_url’ with a value set to whatever URL you’re using for the [confirm-forgot-password] shortcode.

How do I restrict and redirect a user to the login page when user is not logged in?

Content can be restricted using the [restricted][/restricted] tag. Any content between the opening and closing tags will only be visible to those who are logged in. To redirect a user when the user in not logged in you would want to use the [login redirect_page=’url’] shortcode where the url is the login page you want to redirect to.

How do I customize the style of this plugin? I’d like to change the color of my button. Can you let me know how I can do that?

You can customize the plugin by adding code to the “Custom CSS” box on the “Options” page. For example, if you want the button to be red you might try adding:

.ewd-feup-submit.pure-button.pure-button-primary {background: red;}

If you have the premium version, all colors, fonts, sizes, etc. can be customized through the “Styling” area of the “Options” tab.

How do I translate the plugin into my language?

A great place to start learning about how to translate a plugin is at the link below: http://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/how-to-translate-a-wordpress-plugin
Once translated, you’ll need to put the translated mo- and po- files directly in the lang folder and make sure they are named properly for your localization.
If you do translate the plugin, other users would love to have access to the files in your language. You can send them to us at Contact@EtoileWebDesign.com, and we’ll be sure they’re included in a future release.

What features are included in the premium version of the plugin
  • PayPal integration: Ability to charge users a one-time, annual, or monthly membership fee through PayPal
  • Ability to integrate WordPress users, so that WP users can create profiles, access restricted content, be given an FEUP level, etc.

Awsome Support

I noticed a few changes in the way the plugin worked on the update from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 and sent a few questions to the author. Although i expected a response with in 24 hours it only took about 30 minutes for them to respond and answer my questions. This is just AWESOME.

It is great to have a developer that cares about the product they develop.

Works Great! Support Team Incredible!

I downloaded and paid for the plugin because it had specific functionality that I needed in my website. Once downloaded, everything worked great. I did need help with a feature for my website based on their plugin and the support team got back to me very quickly and answered me with exactly what I needed. If you need any of the functionality that “Front End Only Users” provides, I would definitely recommend this plugin to you and your clients. It works smoothly and correctly as well as having a great support team if you need any help.
