Basic Information & Installation

Profile Builder is an all in one user registration and management plugin for WordPress.

It gives you the possibility to customize your website by adding front-end Register, Login and Edit Profile forms.

Profile Builder comes in two premium versions: Basic and Pro. All the features can be seen here.

Installing Profile Builder

Profile Builder installs and is activated just like any other WordPress plugin.

Download the plugin zip file

After you download the plugin, you’ll be able to choose the way you install it:

  1. Unzip the archive and upload the plugin folder under the /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Under the Plugins menu from your WordPress admin interface, choose Add New -> Upload -> browse and upload your .zip file, and then just hit Install Now button


Activate Profile Builder

After the installation completes, just press Activate Plugin and the plugin will be ready for use.


Install the plugin via FTP

  1. Download the plugin and extract it on your computer. If you are using the free version you can download it from here or if you are using a paid version you can download it from here.
  2. Connect to your website via FTP using an FTP client software.
  3. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins directory on your website.
  4. Log in to your WordPress admin dashboard, navigate to the “Plugins” section, and activate the plugin.

How to install the Paid Versions

Starting with version 3.7.2 we have changed the way individual Profile Builder add-ons are used by simplifying the process and re-packaging all premium Add-ons into 3 different premium versions: Basic, Pro, and Unlimited.

When you login into your Cozmoslabs account you will see two buttons:

1. Main Plugin
2. The button associated with the paid version – e.g. if you have the PRO version you will see “Pro Download”.


You need to download the paid version and install it on your site.

In the end, you need to have two plugins installed:
1. Profile Builder – This can be downloaded from the “Main Plugin” button
2. Profile Builder Basic/Pro/Unlimited – This can be downloaded from the ” Basic/ Pro/ Unlimited Download” button


Where is Profile Builder located in the navigation menu?

After the installation and activation, you will find the Profile Builder menu icon just below the Users tab.
