    Generally, users register themselves. The plugin puts the registration process on the front end.

    If you are talking about adding users via the back-end, you can add them just as you would without the plugin, but any additional fields would need to be completed on the user profile after you add them.

    I would suggest reviewing the plugin documentation:

    Chad,
    I had 2.7.6 installed and working normal for my 2200+ users. I applied your update 2.7.7 but I got the message that the Plugin update failed:
    Update Plugin
    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-members.2.7.7.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Installing the latest version…
    Removing the old version of the plugin…
    Could not create directory. C:/inetpub/wwwroot/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-members/
    Plugin update failed.

    I was glade I had the older 2.7.6, I installed 2.7.6, at lease I'm back up running as before the 2.7.7 update. What happened?

    Shawn - this isn't directly related to the existing thread - you should be starting a new thread if you have a question.

    The issue you had can happen when there is a breakdown anywhere in the automatic install process - there are lots of possibilities that have nothing to do with the plugin.

    Here is what you could do:

    1. Attempt the install via the plugin manager again
    2. Download the 2.7.7 version, unzip, and ftp the new version (you should deactivate the plugin prior to doing this)

    If you directly ftp the update and have problems, I would say you need to check the chmod settings of the /wp-members/ and/or /wp-content/plugins/ directories. If you have hardened your install and chmoded these to not be writable, you will need to change that to update.

    If you ever need a roll-back version, previous versions are available on wordpress.org.
