    Hi TNS
    Hmm I’m not really sure I understand what it is you’re asking for ?
    Where do I find this My Account page ?

    That’s just a page that you can create, doesn’t have to be My Account, just thought that name would be indicative of the purpose. It’s simply a page where a user can go to access the settings when the user is logged in.

    So just create a brand new page: there’s nothing on it. Is it possible to display the plugin settings on this new page?

    Hi
    I don’t think that’s a very good idea, userprofile settings belong on the userprofile page.

    Imagine how confusing it would be to find your way around in WordPress if every WordPress plugin did what you propose.

    But how are people supposed to edit these settings when access to the backend has been restricted? I’m not talking about all settings, just the google authenticator portion. For example woocommerce plugin Displays and allows you to edit address on a page. I would like to do te same with the authenticator settings. Please help!

    Well I guess you should not restrict access to the userprofile page.
    How are your users supposed to change password ? And change the other settings available on the userprofile page.

    Woocommerce displays all on a page do they don’t access admin area: change password, address, some others. Just don’t have the ability to change or modify the google authenticator settings.

    Userprofile settings belong on the userprofile page.

    If you want Google Authenticator settings on a Woocommerce page I guess you should talk to the Woocommerce authors.

    The Woocommerce thing was just an example, showing they were able to display and edit userprofile settings on a page. That’s what I want to do as well. Google Authenticator settings don’t automatically go in the Userprofile, so it doesn’t “belong” there: you added it there with a hook. How can I add the same settings to a page? That’s all I want to do, just add it to a page.

    Yes I added the Google Authenticator settings to the userprofile page, it’s the logical home for userspecific settings, just like your password, your preferred editmode, your name, your password etc.

    There is no build-in functionality in my plugin that enables you to display these settings outside of the userprofile page.

    So you will not help me?

    If the functionality was built in, I wouldn’t need to ask for your help. I would like some way to display this on a page. If you find it in your heart to help make this happen, I’d really appreciate it. No need to further discuss logical placement and theory and religion and asl.

    You are asking me if I’ll add functionality that will confuse 99.9% of the users using this plugin.
    I’m sorry, but I think that would be wrong.

    I’m just asking for a hook or some small script to display this, not a complete rewrite of the entire plugin and a published report detailing your scientific findings.

    If this is not possible without a complete overhaul (meaning no easy way to do this), then just say so, no need to go back and forth about ethics.

    Perhaps you should try another plugin supporting Google Authenticator codes, https://www.authy.com/ looks pretty nice.

    Doesn’t look like they have the functionality I’m looking for built-in either, might need to start another thread with that dev about theoretical setting placement locations. Thanks for your time and happy new year.

    Best,
