I’ve set 2 new roles for my site – “sellers” and “buyers”. Each role should have its own registration page with different fields.
I’ve searched for hours for a plugin that will give me the option to do this, but couldn’t find one. Does a plugin like this even exist?
This sounds like a pretty common configuration in membership websites with different role registrations. However, finding a user registration plugin that does this out of the box is where things get hard.
Plugins authors try to offer you workarounds, but the truth is you shouldn’t be required to mess around with the code trying to filter the fields that aren’t relevant on a specific form. Nor be advised to use CSS to hide fields, which of course can break stuff if you need some kind of validation for the extra fields.
Shouldn’t multiple user registration forms with different profile fields for certain roles be more easy to set up using a plugin that was designed exactly for this, to handle the front-end user registration part?
That’s the main reason we made sure that this process is really straight forward in Profile Builder 2.0.
Profile Builder is about to get even better. The past couple of months we’ve been working hard to improve and extend its functionality.
Most of the architecture and UI of the plugin has been rebuilt from scratch for increased usability, focusing on the most essential tasks you would need from an all in one user registration and management plugin.
Since the official release is approaching soon, we thought we’d give you a sneak peak at some of the new things in Profile Builder 2.0.
has_term checks if the current post has any of given terms. The first parameter can be an empty string. It expects a taxonomy slug/name as a second parameter and you can also pass a post ID or object as the third parameter.
It can be useful if you need to list a different message or apply a different css class to your post.
However, if you want to use this inside your content, it won’t work simply because you don’t run PHP code inside the WordPress content area.
This is where a simple shortcode can come a long way.
It’s a simple mapping of the has_term conditional tag to the [has-term] shortcode.
It gives you access to:
[has-term term=”term-name” taxonomy=”tax-name” value=”true” id=””]
List this if post has term-name
[has-term term=”term-name” taxonomy=”tax-name” value=”false” id=””]
List this if post doesn’t have term-name
Plugin Name: WCK - Conditional Shortcode Based on has_term
Plugin URI: http://www.cozmoslabs.com
Description: Gives you access to the [has-term term="term-name" taxonomy="tax-name" value="true" id=""] List this if post has term-name [/has-term] AND [has-term term="term-name" taxonomy="tax-name" value="false" id=""] List this if post doesn't have term-name [/has-term]

Currently there is no support for multiple term names to be passed inside term=”term-name” (similar to the actual has_term function), although that should be easy enough to implement in the plugin if you want to.
Due to an overconfidence on our part regarding WordPress updates and compatibility issues with our plugins, we failed to test WordPress Creation Kit 2.0.5 with WordPress 3.9 before the official launch of WordPress 3.9.
We are sorry. We should have known better and we will make a habit out of testing our plugins with future versions of WordPress before they are released.
Also, due to the way WordPress loads TinyMCE v.4, we’re not able to use it any longer for our own WYSIWYG editor (the main reasons it took us a full day to issue the update). That is the reason why from version WCK 2.0.6 we’ve switched to CKEditor for the WCK WYSIWYG editor.
You can download the latest version of WordPress Creation Kit from:
In WordPress post types are often in a relationship of some sort. For example, you might want to relate a soccer player to a team. You could do it with taxonomies, but it can become cumbersome and it won’t really do what you wanted it to do.
I wanted to use a post to post relationship in my project using other plugins, but I got really stuck when I tried to integrate those in my theme! I’m really not a programmer.
Truth is, post to post relationship plugins have been around for quite some time. The CPT Select field in WCK quite some time ago, but to really make use of it you had to open up your editor and start getting really good at WP_Query.
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.
