Can this plugin display on the user profile page not only its own fields, but already existing fields created by other plugins (for example: NADI)?

1 month 9 days ago

Hi MrRipley,

I’m really sorry, but this add-on doesn’t have such a feature.

The add-on allows to create the following field types: Text, Email, Phone, Url, Date, Color Picker, Number, Password, Drop Down, Radio, Checkbox, Textarea, File Upload, Avatar, Usergroup, HTML.

1 month 9 days ago

Yes, very sorry. I highly recommend you to support third-party plugins (at least NADI) in the future. Forgive, please, but at the moment I have no reason to buy a plugin 🙁

Does this add-on complement or does it replace the Ultimate Members plugin?

Can you hide a field? that is not public

Hi Robert,
I’d like to make sure if this addon has a function of deleting/unregister by users.
You said it’s going to have one on forum, but any of description here has mentioned about it.

Does it show on member account page? Could you give brief descriptions?
If it sounds complicating, I’m thinking to migrate to other platform…

This feature will be added in the wpForo plugin core in future versions.

This addon is designed to extend the forum profile system and doesn’t have such a functionality. You can create a custom Registration form with custom fields, add custom fields in the User Profile system and in Members Search form.

Doc you can find here: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/addons/wpforo-user-custom-fields/

Do you allow admin approval before a new registration is active?

7 months 11 days ago

Hi Robert,

User registration is being processed through the default WordPress registration system. If you already have a registration approval function in WP then it’ll work for wpForo. If you don’t have such function please search for Registration activation plugins, they should work for wpForo too. These are two good examples:

With this paid addon will we be able to remove the current profile fields such as Social Networks individually or as a whole? I am interested in using this as a full replacement for BuddyPress and have already fully replaced bbPress. You guys have an outstanding forum plugin!!!

1 year 2 months ago

Thank you CJ Lackner Jr,
Yes you’ll be able to remove all non required fields, as well as all Social networks fields. Also this addon as built-in BuddyPress importer tool. This helps to migrate all buddyPress fields to wpForo user Fields addon.

If the person refuses to click on the box “I agree to the forum Terms and Privacy policy,” which I assume is a field the admin creates, does that mean that person cannot register until he/she does click on the box? Thank you.

1 year 4 months ago

If you set this field as required, visitors will not be able to register, it’ll always ask for checking this field.

Hi I’m using your awesome plugin and I planning to replace my existing BuddyPress user profiles with your Forums user profiles (and completely remove buddypress)

However on BuddyPress I have some extended custom profile fields

If I install your plugin is there anyway to import these fields on your user profile fields? In other words to synchronize these existing fields as well?

Is there also a way on your plugin front end account settings to remove obsolete social fields like AOL IM and ICQ (we are lo longer in 1997)?

Thank you

1 year 5 months ago

Hi Alex,
Thank you for your interest in wpForo addons. At the moment we’re working on BuddyPress to wpForo User Custom Fields addon data migrator tool. This will be available soon. Using this tool all custom field data from BuddyPress will be migrated to wpForo User Profile System.

Can you customize fields to “nofollow” or URL verification (url for facebook field must start with https://facebook.com/)?

1 year 5 months ago

Hi kevin
There is no such option yet. We’ll take this under consideration for future releases.

Thanks for offering this. Will users be able to edit their custom fields on the front end?

1 year 6 months ago

Sure, this is a front-end Profile extending addon. As you can see in screenshots All fields can be managed by users in My Profile > Account front-end page.
