User Registration

Step by step documentation to set up a user registration form for your website.

User Registration Pro

User Registration Pro is a newly introduced stand-alone add-on that doesn’t require the User Registration free version to be activated. This means that, once you upgrade to the premium version, you won’t be needing the User Registration free version anymore. Similarly, this add-on comprises all the features of the Extras add-on due to which you can get rid of the Extras add-on too. Therefore, one add-on i.e. User Registration Pro will work as the core version and the Extras add-on from now on. To remove any confusion among the users, all the necessary features of this add-on have been explained below.
Please note that the User Registration add-on will include many more features in the near future. Therefore, please be updated and get along with this add-on.

  2. After the successful purchase, you will get the plugin zip file under your WPEverest account page.
  3. Now, you can download the plugin zip file from there.
  4. Through your WordPress Dashboard, visit Plugins -> Add New -> Upload and then choose the downloaded zip file and then install and activate it.

Form Fields Related #

How to allow fields to be populated dynamically?(Auto-populate form fields) #

Query string allows you to append information with a given URL by appending parameters to it which automatically populates the related field. This helps website owners to create a form that can have similar entries for certain form fields for a set of users. Users can use the URL provided by the sites to save themselves some time and decrease the confusion to fill out some fields.


  • Go to required registration form and click on edit.
  • For the field you would like to be auto-populated, click on th field which takes you to the field settings.
  • Scroll down to the Advanced Settings, and on ‘Allow field to be populated dynamically’ dropdown, select ‘Yes’.
  • Now, add the parameter of your choice.
  • Add the form’s shortcode to the registration page.

After doing the above steps, you can append the parameters to the page/posts URLs as in the example below.
where parameter1 is the name of the parameter for the field and value1 is the required value for that field.
Note: parameter name can be anything of your choice. Here, firstname field is written as 'fname'.

Now, provide this URL to your users and the form will be auto-populated with the values of fields in the parameter.

Validate as a unique field #

Four of the most useful fields can be validated as unique fields. This includes first name, last name, phone number, and input field.

In the example below, a phone number field is validated as a unique field.

Validate as unique: Dropdown for Yes/No to validate as unique.
Validation message for the duplicate: Compose a message to be shown if the field is not unique.

If the field is duplicated, the following error message will be shown.

Form Field’s Tooltip #

You can add a tooltip on the form fields from the Field Options for each individual field. On the Field Options, find the option that says ‘Enable Tooltip’. Select ‘Yes’ and write the tooltip message.

Once you have written the tooltip message, hit ‘Update form’ and you are good to go. The tooltip will appear as below:

Bulk Add Options for choice fields #

You can add options for the choice fields like select, radio, and checkbox in a bulk with the help of the User Registration Pro add-on. For this, add any one of the choice fields and on the Field Options > Options, you will find an option to Bulk Add items.

How To Create A Popup?
To create a new Popup, simply click on the Add New button here.

After you click on it, you will be presented with the screen below.

There are 3 main sections in this window.
1. Display Popup
2. Popup Content
3. Popup Appearance

Let’s talk about Display Popup first. It has two simple options.

Enable This Popup: You can simply enable or disable the popup by ticking/un-ticking the checkbox.

Select Popup Type: You can choose between Registration and Login which will let you decide what popup are you making.

We have Popup Content as the second section. This section is also not that confusing. Inside this section, we see:

Popup Name: In this input box, you can give a name to your popup. For example popup one

Popup Header Content: In this editor section, you can write some content for the Header Section of your popup.

Select Form: Here you can select the Registration Form that you want to display in the popup. The Registration forms will be shown in the dropdown input box.

Note: This option will not be seen if you select Login Popup as the Popup Type. It will only show for Registration Popup.

Popup Footer Content: In this editor section, you can write some content for the Footer Section of your popup.

The third and last section is the Popup Appearance section. We have one option here:

Select Popup Size: In this option, you can select what size you want to display the Popup in the frontend. You have 3 options to choose from, Default, Large, and Extra Large. You can choose any as per your design requirements.

Click on Add Popup and all the changes will be saved. You will then be redirected back where you can see all the popups that you created.

To use the popup, simply copy the shortcode and paste it into your page in a shortcode block.

After that, when you visit that page, the popup will show up.

How To Add a Popup to the Menu? #

You can also add the Popup in the Menu Bar as a Menu Option. After you have created the Popup, you can simply go to Appearance > Menu and then add the popup to your Menu.

After you have added it, click on Save Menu and then visit your site. The Popup Link will show up in the Menu. When you click on it, the Popup will show up.

How To Add a Popup as a Button? #

You can add the popup as a button such that when the button is clicked, the popup is shown. This gives you the flexibility to add the popup anywhere you would like to. For example, between the contents of a post, widgets, etc.

For this, you will have to add parameters to the existing shortcode. For example, adding type=”button” i.e [user_registration_popup id=”1″ type=”button”] will create a button with the registration form’s popup.

Here, we have added the shortcode on the footer widget area.


Note: You can also add a parameter button_text="Register Me" to change the text on the button.
