Here is a quick little snippet that will allow you to timestamp a user’s profile when they update their data. This will allow admins to know quickly how current the information is. Continue Reading →
This code example is similar in both the code used and the concept as what was outlined in Force User to Update Password from Randomly Set Password. The main difference here is that we are looking for the user to update required user fields that may not yet be complete.
This may be useful in situations where user data is imported into the site but may not be fully complete and you need the user to update (or confirm) their information before continuing to use the site. 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 →
Here’s a request I get from time to time – how can the admin receive email notification that a user updated their data, so I figured it is about time to put that together as a tutorial.
This one should be fairly straight forward and can be used cut-and-paste for the general features. As usual, I’ve tried to comment the code so that you know what is happening where and more advanced users can build on this concept from there. Continue Reading →
NOTE: As of plugin version 2.9.3, password, password confirm, and email confirm fields are included in the plugin’s default fields. All you need to do is enable them. Everything described in this post is now integrated into the plugin.
Some users like to have a confirmation process in their registration. For example, having two email fields and comparing to make sure the user properly entered their email address. This code snippet will show you how you can quickly add this feature with the addition of some custom fields in your form.
