Profile Builder version 1.1.6 has arrived

Last Updated: 22/09/11

The latest version includes a few small, but important features if you wish to customize the plugin.

For those who just met up with WordPress, Profile Builder is WordPress registration done right; it lets you customize your website by adding a front-end menu for all your users, giving them a more flexible way to modify their user-information or to register new users.

We’ve also put together a short presentation video where you can see Profile Builder in action.

Now back to features. Firstly, we have completed the front-end registration plugin with a password recovery page. Just like every other page, this feature includes a shortcode ([wppb-recover-password]). Use this, with fully customizable emails and messages to skip the default WordPress forms all-together.

Also, by using the new (and now complete) custom redirects, your users will only have access to where you want them.

The second biggest feature of this release is the fact that you can mark the fields (both default and extra) as required. This means the user can’t register without having completed these fields, and neither can he delete this info later on from the edit profile page (the information can be modified but he/she won’t be able to submit the new data if it’s not filled out properly).

NOTE: at the moment this feature only works on the front end, but using this in conjunction with the custom redirects, your users won’t have access to the dashboard anyway.

Last but not least, I would like to mention the most important feature of this release: filters, the crème de la crème for all plugins.

We redesigned the plugin and added to every notification/content/values a filter to let you easily customize the layout for your own needs, without the fear of loosing the data after a new update.

You can find a detailed list of all the filters here.

We hope you enjoy the new features, and if you have any questions, just post a new topic over at the forums.

Also, there have been many interesting feature requests, which will be included in the next release(s), so stay tuned!

    Hi! I’ve the previous version of profile bulder..and I’ve modified it a bit…but there isn’t a recovery-password-page like in the new version….It’s still possible to add ? Or Have I to download the newer version and do all the mod I’ve done on the previous version?

    Thanks for the replay!


    Hello Shaolin,
    the only way to add a password recovery page and NOT to update is to edit the code manually/copy the new file.
    But there will be more updates in the future, and the new version has a few hooks in place to make your changes permanent.



    Thanks gabriel for the replay..
    So, you say that I can simply copy the new file wppb.recover.password.php in my PB plugin folder already present and then create a simple page with the [wppb-recover-password] tag to work like new released version?
    Thanks for the replay!


    Yes…that and to edit some files..that's why I said that it will take some editing to make it work either way.


    Thanks! …but I’ve thinked about a while…It’s better to get the last version and hack that for my purpouse.. 🙂

    Any chance to add editing for user meta as well? I have a registration form that adds more than just the basic user profile fields.


    @Anton : you have to modify the edit-profile.php as you have done with the register.php file…It’s possible trust me..


    @shaolin, which edit-profile.php are you talking about? Is this the one: front-end/wppb.edit.profile.php ?


    is there any way to use a captcha in these registration forms? Like the options here on this plugin but if there isn’t a way to add a captcha it’s basically useless for my site…


    Hello Kevin,

    there is a forum dedicated to Profile Builder, where a lot of people ask question, and one of them was about the captcha…. here is the thread:



    where do I get the new version from? Does it automatically update from wordpress?
