Profile Builder - front-end user registration, login and edit profile

Simple to use profile plugin allowing front-end login, user registration and edit profile by using shortcodes.

Profile Builder is WordPress user registration done right.

It lets you customize your website by adding a front-end menu for all your users, giving them a more flexible way to modify their user profile or register new users (front-end user registration). Users with administrator rights can customize basic user fields or add custom user fields to the front-end forms.

To achieve this, simply create a new page and give it an intuitive name(i.e. Edit Profile). Now all you need to do is add the following shortcode: [wppb-edit-profile]. Publish the page and you are done!

Front-end User Registration, Login, Edit Profile and Password Recovery Shortcodes

You can use the following shortcode list:

  • [wppb-edit-profile] - to grant users front-end access to their profile (requires user to be logged in).
  • [wppb-login] - to add a front-end login form.
  • [wppb-logout] - to add logout functionality.
  • [wppb-register] - to add a front-end register form.
  • [wppb-recover-password] - to add a password recovery form.

  • drag & drop to reorder user profile fields

  • redirect users after login, register and edit-profile using redirect_url shortcode argument ( e.g [wppb-login redirect_url="www.example.com"] )
