Call it “Meet the Team”, “Our Team” or “Staff List”, a WordPress Team Page is a pretty standard request when building a new website. That’s probably because everyone wants to know the people behind a specific project. It ads a personal touch to the company and can lend trust to visitors.
Even though there are many ways to go about building a WordPress Team Page, in this tutorial we’re going to focus on making it simple (easy to build) and intuitive (easy to update by clients – mostly non-technical users).
Let’s consider the following scenario:
we want to have a variable number of team members
it needs to be easy to add, remove or rearrange team members
to make it easy to update we’ll need specific fields for team members, like: Name, Title, Bio, Picture, Social Media links etc.
Now here comes the best part. It would be great if we can achieve all of this with a couple of clicks from the WordPress admin UI and without writing a single line of PHP code.
How you choose to do this is a matter of preference. You can opt for one of these options:
choose from a list of plugins that make only testimonials
you can also use Custom Post Types, that attaches your testimonials to a particular page
or, our very own favorite, choose to get your hands on by using Custom Fields that are attached to a certain Page Template.

For us, the most flexible and intuitive way to create a WordPress Testimonial Page is by using Custom Fields and create our own Page Template. We’ll use the WCK – Custom Fields Creator to speed things up.
Have you hit a road block when it comes to WordPress user registration?
You probably would like to have new users register before being able to take certain actions (for example, posting reviews or commenting) but do not want them to have access to the WordPress Dashboard? Truth is, WordPress User Registration doesn’t have to be hard to get.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a straight forward guide to the WordPress User Registration that will take you through:
the default WordPress user registration
recommended plugins to make it work the way you want
code and tutorial suggestions for the more advanced readers
So if you found the user registration in WordPress confusing, hopefully the WordPress User Registration Series will shed some light on the hole subject and gets you closer to finalizing your project.
