Multiple Edit Profile Forms with Different Fields
After using Multiple Registration Forms to register different user roles with different fields, it makes sense to set up multiple edit profile forms and offer all these user types an option to access and edit their (different) profile information.
Using the Multiple Edit Profile addon you can set up one or more front-end edit profile forms with different fields.
After activating the addon from the Addons UI, the Edit-profile Forms tab will show up in the Profile Builder menu.
Adding a new Edit Profile Form
For adding a new registration form, simply click the “Add New” button and enter a form Title.
You can also choose if you want to Redirect users after they edit their profile to a specific URL.
Managing Edit Profile Form Fields
When setting up a new edit profile form you can choose which fields to appear in it.
You can easily add, edit or delete any of the fields defined in the Manage Fields tab. You can also drag & drop to reorder the fields to your liking.
You can have for example a lite registration, where users fill in only some basic fields, followed by a detailed edit profile where they are required to fill in more information.
Also using the two addons you can have some fields only show up on registration and not on the edit profile, making them not visible and editable by the user afterwards.
This setup offers major flexibility for managing your user fields.
Edit Profile Form Shortcode
After setting up the edit profile form options and fields you can go ahead and “Publish” it.
After publishing, you will be prompted with a form shortcode that can be used to display the form on the front-end.
