Building a profile page out of user registration submitted info

  1. Hello, I'd like to build a profile page out of user registration submitted info, but not all the user's information is to go into a profile page just some field values.

    Eg, Name, tel number, dropdown menu value (that user has entered) etc

    Also is there a way to just have the postcode field without the rest of the address fields?

    Many thanks for your time

  2. To build out a profile page, you will have to do something like this:

    To list the post code field only, you will need to capture it separately rather than as part of the address block.

  3. Right so there's no way to do this without manual coding of the profile page? I was hoping there would be a way to output this through the user registration plugin into a profile page. That would be an extremely useful addition to gf. I've google this scenario and it's a very frequently requested piece of functionality.

    Can you recommend any other articles to get this functionality in place? Essentially the premise is 2 types of people (one the user) and another businesses signup. The user needs to view the business registration form values which is ouput as a business profile.

    Many thanks Chris, your time is really appreciated.

  5. I believe that Gravity forms is not going to be useful for myself. I'm building this for someone else who needs frontend capabilities to edit data.

    I've also just tried to enter a telephone number on a sample form i've created and after over 10 submissions and checking the format matches the suggestion the form will just not submit. This was only a test form but users signing up will not stay around long enough to try multiple times. It needs to be much easier to enter this information in without receiving error messages.

    May I please have a refund as the plugin does not meet the requirements. I've been struggling with this since day and finding out there is no way to output custom registration info into a page without php coding and the issue above I think it be easier if I looked for an alternative. I am building this on behalf of someone who has no knowledge of php. He will need some sort of frontend editor in regards to editing meta info.

    Many sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Regards

    Phil

    @gacartwright this User Profiles Made Easy plugin might be your solution: http://codecanyon.net/item/user-profiles-plugin-for-wordpress/4109874

    I've tested the Registration Addon custom meta fields with UPME frontend form and it does work.

    With UPME you can:
    -build a profile page out of user registration submitted info, but not all the user's information is to go into a profile page just some field values.

    Eg, Name, tel number, dropdown menu value (that user has entered) etc

    -have the postcode field without the rest of the address fields?

    I want to try this too...my solution was free, used shortcodes to call custom meta onto a page list, edit profile went to form, but this might be a bit cleaner on the backend. My issue - I need data form forms to work with other forms...

    @gacartwright you're welcome :)

    @Formmaker, if understood correctly, this can be done with Gravity Forms--once you assign a custom meta to a Gravity Forms Update/Create User field, you can then map the data onto another Update User form. Each registration Create User form should have it's match Update User form. Form duplication feature is very handy in this scenario.
