    Hi Guys.
    Listen please: I would really need a suggestion from You !! I’ve about the “User Registration Add-On” and it works perfectly BUT ... I do not know if and how I can use it for my purpose …
    The fact is that ... I was looking for something, which can give me the possibility to build 1 single registration form for my web-site giving the user the possibility to become a user of my site and, at the same time, give them the access to my E-SHOP, of course … as well as at the FORUM, the NEWSLETTER etc

    But, How can I make ALL my plugins use the WordPress User-Data ??
    More than this ... The User Registration Add-On works fine BUT it doesn't write ALL the fields I built in the registration form to the WordPress User ...
    This is the situation of my web-site (which is still in “work-in-progress”)…
    I have on WP this plugins/features:
    0. Gravity Forms, of course (used to make Photo Travel School Registration Forms etc),
    1. WP e-Commerce for FineArt eShop,
    2. MailChimp for NewsLetter and Addresses Management,
    3. bbPress for a little Forum,
    4. Other important plugins I use are, for instance GoogleAnalytics, qTranslate (I am implementing different languages), WangGuard …
    Please …
    HOW can I manage all this ?? Do You have and Idea ??
    I know … it is NOT only a question about the Registration Add-On but … I really need help to figure out the management … Myabe You experienced the same problem, I don’t know … but I am sure, You can help me with your suggestions! … Or, at least … I hope so !! :o( ^_^

    Thank You So Much! ^_^
    PIETRO ^_^

    All I can help you with is the User registration add-on. If you want more of the fields in the user registration form to be written to the user, then in the user registration feed settings, make sure you select those fields for User Meta, and they will be saved as well.

    No, in the area where you map fields from your form to your user registration inside of Forms -> User Registration is where there is a section to map fields including Custom Meta fields.

    This is the page you are looking for in Forms -> User Registration

    http://rgsharedweb.s3.amazonaws.com/images/features/wordpress_integration/user_registration_large.jpg

    And the custom registration means that instead of going to the WordPress registration page, it goes to the one you've set in Gravity Forms.

    If you look at the image I posted before, you can see the person had interests (which is what they named the custom user meta field) and then on the right, they selected which field maps to that user meta. This is how this tool works. You map things from your form, to the user profile, creating links between the data collected, and the user account.

    You mean on the User Profile page? If so, that is because WordPress, by default, doesn't show custom user meta. You would have to program it to show, and change WordPress to pull the values, and give options to change it if you so choose. This is beyond Gravity Forms though. Gravity Forms allows you to collect custom user meta without an issue, but WordPress fails to show it.

    Here is a link to someone discussing this on WPQuestions:
    http://wpquestions.com/question/show/id/3800

    And here is a link to the post that I used when I wanted to display custom user meta on a user's profile page: http://justintadlock.com/archives/2009/09/10/adding-and-using-custom-user-profile-fields

    Usually when that happens, it is due to a theme or plugin conflict. Can you please try the following steps to isolate the issue:

    Wow ...
    David ... is pretty hard ... I do not know I can :( I do not know programming so well :( ... But I will try :) ...
    Just, one thing, please:
    ... Do You think I could just use some plugin ?? I had a look to the WP plugins page and ... is a plugin like "USER META" something which could help me ??
    ...
    Maybe, if I install them, WP will be ready to accept User Meta from Gravity Forms to ...
    What do You think about this, please ??
    THANK A LOT

    WordPress already does accept User Meta, it just doesn't display it. If you can find a plugin to display custom user meta on user profiles, that would be great, but I don't know of any.

    As for bbPress, can you check Forms -> Settings and check if No-Conflict Mode is On or Off?
