    Hello all,

    1. I have created one registration form that users can choose their role in a drop down menu and they are assigned to this role in UM Community Role after registration.
    2. Originally this site had 2 roles that were using the same profile form. (Global settings)
    3. Now ive added 2 more roles and am looking to separate each role with its own profile form. (to display different information per role)
    3. Till now all users where creating their profile with one global profile form but i need to change this and im facing some issues.
    4. I have created new profile forms per role and changed their settings from “Global settings” to Assigned to a specific role i wanted to display.

    5. The problem im facing is that when assigning each profile role to its user role all the users profile are changing leaving only their username as a title on their page and all the rest of the info is gone.

    6. The only profile form that is still working after assigning it to a certain user group is the first profile form that was ever created that previously had the global setting on.

    7. How can i get each user role to build their profiles with a different profile form which is suitable to their role? What an i missing?

    8. There is also a short code for each form but im not getting where this code should go…. Maybe that is my mistake?

    Thank you for any help on this!

    Hi @orlybg,

    The shortcode should be pasted to your User page, so you will have 2 profile form shortcodes on your user page.
    The role to the form can be assigned in Ultimate member -> Forms -> your profile form.
    Set NO in “Use global settings” on the right side of the page and select user role in “Make this profile role-specific”.

    Regards.

    Hi @orlybg,

    You can find your User page on the WordPress Dashboard -> Pages section.
    I suggest looking through our docs for more info.

    Hello,
    I have done what it says in this tutorial step by step:
    http://docs.ultimatemember.com/article/100-unique-profiles-for-different-user-roles

    And finally i have understood where to locate the user page and paste all the user profile forms shortcodes on that page but still the only profiles im able to see fully functioning are the user group that is assigned to the first default profile form.
    All the rest roles that are assigned to the new profile forms are showing only the nick name and thats it. (I would have sent a link if i could leave it that way)
    Till now all users where creating their profile with one global profile form. Do you think that thats why im not able to transfer them to a new user role profile?
    Will they all have to register again from scratch and create their profiles again so it will be created with the current assigned profile form?

    My first message contained
