WP Front End Profile


Please note: This plugin is no longer maintained or updated. If you would like to adopt this plugin, please support a support request indicating so in the support forum.

WP Front End Profile give you the ability to add a extensible user profile section to the front end of your WordPress website. By default the plugin adds two tabs to the front end profile. One of these titled profile allows a user to edit their user data including email, first and last names, URL and bio (description). The password tab allows a user to change their password for the site.

Plugin Extensibility

As the front end profile is rendered with tabs you can easily add your own tabs with your own fields to store user meta data. Tabs and fields are added through filters and all the saving of the data is taken care of for you.

You can add the following field types:

  • Select
  • Text Area
  • Checkbox
  • Password
  • Email
  • Text

See FAQs for how to add our own fields and tabs.

Profile Output

To output the front end profile you can use the following function in your template files:



  • The front end profile output.


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php wpfep_show_profile(); ?> in your templates where you want the front end profile to display

How do I add my own tab to the profile output?

Tabs can be added using the wpfep_tabs filter provided. Below is an example of how to add a tab after the default Profile and Password tabs.

function wpmark_add_tab( $tabs ) {

    /* add our tab to the tabs array */
    $tabs[] = array(
        'id' => 'wpmark_tab',
        'label' => 'Testing',
        'tab_class' => 'testing-tab',
        'content_class' => 'testing-content',

    /* return all the tabs */
    return $tabs;


add_filter( 'wpfep_tabs', 'wpmark_add_tab', 30 );

Note here the priority of 30 which means after the Profile tab (10) and the Password tab (20).

How do I add fields to tab?

Fields can be added to a tab using a dynamic filter named wpfep_fields_$tab_id. The tab ID is the id of tab as declared when adding the tab (see FAQ above). This means that you can add fields to any tab even the default tabs. Below is an example of how you would add fields to a tab with the ID of wpmark_tab:

function wpmark_add_tab_fields( $fields ) {

    $fields[] = array(
        'id' => 'testing_field',
        'label' => 'Testing',
        'desc' => 'Just testing.',
        'type' => 'text',
        'classes' => 'testing',

    return $fields;


add_filter( 'wpfep_fields_wpmark_tab', 'wpmark_add_tab_fields', 10 );
Are there any field IDs I cannot use?

Yes there are two field IDs reserved which are user_email and user_url. This is because you should not save new meta data with these keys are they already exist, but not in the user_meta table.
