Uninstall if you updated to 4.2 wordpress
By ,

after upgrading to version 4.2 of WordPress the plugin no longer works.. when a new user registers for your site.. they will see that the registration was successful but they will never receive any account info.

Also as a Site administrator you will not know that anyone has even tried to register..

so my suggestion to you is if you have this currently installed and you rely on it to get new business and you have updated to wordpress 4.2 you better uninstall or you will get no more users.

I manage several multisites, along with quite a few others on a few networks. I had high hopes for this plugin. After installing it and attempting to configure it, it failed to do what was promised, wasting a bit of time and frustration.

After I attempted to get this plugin working, I searched for answers and came across a few replies from the author in response to a few very polite inquires. The author was a rude, well, I'm too polite to use that sort of languages here, but it suffices to say that I would not waste my time trying to contact him for support and will not waste any more time trying to figure out this ill-conceived plugin. Poorly written and evidently poorly supported.

Steer clear of this one. A time waster.

Ugly,confusing, unfinished, rude

I am well versed in coding but this plugin is an ugly mess. There are no guides, the plugin creates duplicate field, there is no way to display a field as required(cant add asterisk), so much complexity for something that could be done simpler and neater as shown by other plugins. Also the author of the plugin is rude and unhelpful, uninstalled.

Poorly coded
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's always a bit hard to jugde a plugin, which is free. But this one is really an ugly nightmare. I installed it to add an avatar upload thorugh registration, but this feature is broken. So I deinstalled Cimy User Extra Fields and coded it by hand.
Unfortunately their are a lot of database-entries and folders left, after uninstalling.
I would recommend everybody to use Register redux, pie register or code it by hand (which is not that much to do).

Horrible attitude of developer in providing information
