Add / Update User Profile Meta data with User Registration Add On?

    (Sorry for posting here, but I do not have access to the User Registration Add On Area with my license)

    I want to be able to allow (existing) users to Add or Edit some custom profile fields via a form. From what I could access in the docs, it looks like the user registration add on will let you do this, but only when creating a new user.

    Is there a way in GF for existing user to add/edit this meta?

    Thanks!

  2. In general, to edit existing data in your WordPress site, you need to read that data, pre-populate the form with that information, allow the authorized visitor access to the form so they can edit the values, accept the form submission, then update the data with the data that was accepted. You can accomplish all this using the gform_pre_render hook to read the values and display them in the form, and the gform_after_submission hook to update data which is stored in places other than the entry. It can be done but will require some programming to make it happen. This is a rough explanation of the process to do it.
