Pre Sale Question: Customizable Registration Fields

  1. This is a shot in the dark...but if one were to use the PayPal and Registration Add-ons, would the subscriber be able to edit the info (for example: address, phone number, etc) in the future? Thanks.

    I am not sure what you mean, but if you were to register a WordPress user, and add those fields to their user profile, then yes, they could update their user profile by logging into WordPress and going to Users -> Profile.

    You could have them pay to register on your site as well, if you so chose. The information in their WordPress account wouldn't be available to Paypal though. Not sure if this helps.

  3. let me provide more detail so we can make sure this will do what we need it to:

    What I need is a full-fledged membership site, basically, but I'm having a TON of trouble finding one which provides real customization of the user profiles. The only one I can find is s2Member, and s2Member is a complete total unmitigated pain in the bazookas. Since this is a multisite, I need user friendliness to be somewhere in the realm of "not maddening."

    Anyway, we need people to be able to:

    * Sign up as a paid member.
    * Provide custom registration fields (including address, phone number, facebook, twitter, etc.
    * Be able to access that profile information later and change it if need be.
    * Integrate with Mailchimp so that they get our member emails.

    Would the combination of a form, with Member Registration Add-on, plus Pay Pal Standard/Pro, plus MailChimp integration accomplish all of that? Or would I be trying to do too much with a form plugin, and should just deal with a Membership Plugin that makes me want to scream.

    Hope that's clearer...

    Our user registration add-on allows you to create WordPress users with Gravity Forms. You can add additional custom fields and have that information attached to their user profile in WordPress. You can also create a form to allow logged in users to update their information. You should be able to do everything you've listed without too much of an issue. Check out our demo installs and have a look at what Gravity Forms can and can't do. While you won't be able to play around with the add-ons, it should give you some ideas of how Gravity Forms looks and works. I also recommend looking through our documentation before purchasing, specifically those pages relating to the add-ons you are considering and our Developer documentation relating to our extensive hooks that could be useful to you in your project.
