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.

  1. Upload the front-end-only-users folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Place "[register]" on the page where you want your registration form to display
  4. Place "[login]", "[logout]" and "[edit-profile]" shortcodes on pages as applicable
  5. All four of the shortcodes accept an attribute, 'redirect_page', that lets you send users to a different page after submitting the form

Tutorial Part 1

Tutorial Part 2

  • The user registration form can be customized from the admin panel, under the "Front-End Users" tab.
  • Content can be restricted to users who are logged in using the [restricted][/restricted] tag.
  • You can further restrict content to a subset of users by adding "field_name" and "field_value" attributes to the restricted shortcode.
  • For example, "[restricted field_name='Country' field_value='Canada']This is Canadian content.[/restricted]" would only display the line "This is Canadian content." to those who have put their "Country" as "Canada" on their user profile.
  • You can also personalize your site using the [user-data] tag.
  • By default the tag will return the user's Username, but can also display any other field (ex. [user-data field_name='First Name'])
