Really Simple CAPTCHA can be used with the WP-Members plugin in place of the default reCAPTCHA.
The previous method involved adding each checkbox as a field, and then all of the extra code we needed to handle multiple fields as one both for storing the data, handling user updates, and also in emailing admin notifications.
But 2.9 allows us to filter the rows directly in the array of rows and insert the extra html we need for this. That means you only need to create one field in the fields manager which makes handling the data much easier on the backend. I’ve even made the code snippets nearly cut-and-paste. In most cases, you should only need to specify the name for the checkbox group and the labels/checked values. Continue Reading →
This particular example is a generic tutorial for requesting additional data fields in the registration form on a specific page. Since these are fields that do not show up in the regular registration form, we need to also present the data to logged in users to add this data.
While conceptually this is not an overly complicated process, the practical implementation has quite a few steps, so I will try to explain each step in the process while giving that particular code snippet being discussed at that point.Continue Reading →
One of the requests I get most often is how can I change the plugin to have the password reset only require the user to give their email address. This especially comes up when people customize the process to use the person’s email address as their username, since a password reset form with “username” and “email” doesn’t make much sense in that situation.
I have received a lot of requests in the past for how to add a set of dropdown selections for date and store it as a single user meta value. This is a great example of using the new wpmem_register_form_rows filter hook, a new hook in 2.9, because we can use a single field in the WP-Members Fields tab for the date of birth to be stored as a single meta and use the filter to quickly change the placeholder field to a trio of dropdowns for date selection.
Note: this example requires a some php work, but like all of the examples here, I have tried to make it as “cut-and-paste ready” as I can. For many, this will work out of the box. For some, you may want to change the way the date is assembled and displayed (i.e. DD/MM/YYYY). I’ve tried to comment the code snippet as much as possible so you can follow what is going on.
