Display Fancier settings on frontend (theme my login) (7 posts)

    Hi, thank you for the wonderful plugin!

    I am currently using theme my login plugin and only allow subscribers to edit their profiles on an frontend page.

    Theme my plugin uses the following php (i copied into txt file) to create the frontend profile page. Is it possible to add some codes to also display the fancier user settings on the frontend profile page?

    I tried to copy the codes from ts-fab-user-settings.php into the theme my login php mentioned above but could not get it to work.

    Appreciate if you are able to help. Thanks!

    Please check this existing support thread for list of fields Fancier Author Box uses:

    To retrieve any of these fields you'd need to use get_user_meta function - http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_user_meta

    I'm sorry to say but I am not good with coding.

    Is it possible to advise what code I can include in the profile.php which I mentioned earlier to generate the fields on the frontend form for input by subscribers, which will look like the form which you generated in the backend user profile page.

    Really appreciate your help very much!

    Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Theme My Login and its code, so I can't give you exact code, but this tutorial might help:


    Then you'd just use those fields listed in the other Fancier Author Box support thread:

    thanks for the help. However, it did not really help as the instruction was for User registration page instead of User profile page.

    I may consider asking the question to Theme My Login author.

    I do appreciate your prompt response and help.

    I think the profile page should be very similar to registration page, the only difference being that registration enters the values for the first time, while edit profile makes changes to existing values.
