User Registration & User Profile – Profile Builder

Powerful user profile plugin for creating front-end login, user registration and edit profile forms. Includes content restriction and user role editor …

Profile Builder is the all in one user profile plugin for WordPress.

Easy to use user profile plugin for creating front-end login, user registration and edit profile forms by using shortcodes.

Restrict Content based on user role or logged in status. Manage user roles and capabilities using the built in Role Editor.

Profile Builder lets you customize your website by adding a front-end menu for all your users, giving them a more flexible way to modify their user profile or register (front-end user registration).
Users with administrator rights can customize basic user fields or add custom user fields to the front-end forms.

To achieve this, simply create a new page and give it an intuitive name(i.e. Edit Profile).
Now all you need to do is add the following shortcode: [wppb-edit-profile].
Publish the page and you are done!

Front-end User Registration, Login, User Profile and Password Recovery Forms

You can use the following shortcode list to display the forms:

  • [wppb-edit-profile] – to grant users front-end access to their user profile (requires user to be logged in).
  • [wppb-login] – to add a front-end login form.
  • [wppb-logout] – to add logout functionality.
  • [wppb-register] – easily register users via a front-end register form.
  • [wppb-recover-password] – to add a password recovery form.
  • [wppb-restrict] Content to restrict [/wppb-restrict] – to restrict content of any type

I navigated away from Profile Builder and now I can�t find it anymore; where is it?

Profile Builder can be found in the default menu of your WordPress installation below the �Users� menu item.

Why do the default WordPress user fields still show up in the back-end?

Profile Builder can only remove the default user fields in the front-end of your site/blog, it doesn’t remove them from the back-end.

I can’t find a question similar to my issue; Where can I find support?

For more information please visit and check out the documentation section from Profile Builder – front-end user registration plugin.
