Support » Plugin: Ultimate Member - User Profile & Membership Plugin » Users can’t update email on profile page

  • Hello,

    On our site when a user goes to the User page, where the profile form is, they don’t see the email field to edit.

    Email field has “Can user edit this field” checked and on Settings > General > Account “Allow users to change e-mail” is also checked.

    We saw from previous posts to go to Settings -> Users and check “Editable primary email field in profile view” but we don’t see this option.

    We have Version 2.0.21 of the plugin.

    Hi @seethroughweb,

    Please make sure to check “Allow users to change e-mail” in Ultimate member -> Settings -> General -> Account and see if it helps.


    Hello –

    I can’t find way to show the fields from Ultimate Member registration form to show up with their submitted values on the user profile form I have created in Ultimate Member.

    What I am missing here? I added the user meta fields from Registration in the profile form but the fields doesn’t show up on the page when used the profile form short code.

    How people build their profile form to show up and allow edit of their registration fields like contact names, address and several other custom fields.

    Please advise so i can complete my website.

    Thanks & Best regards

    To enable the editing of the primary email, you need to remove the ‘user_email’ from the forbidden edit-fields inside the core/fields-file. Search for ‘// fields that need to be disabled in edit mode (profile)’


    Where is this core/fields-file?


    I am having very problem too.

    You can find it at core/class-fields.php

    // fields that need to be disabled in edit mode (profile)
    $arr_restricted_fields = array( 'user_email', 'username', 'user_login', 'user_password' );

    remove ‘user_email’,

    $arr_restricted_fields = array( 'username', 'user_login', 'user_password' );
