WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am trying to create a registration page on my site to allow visitors to register on the site and have access to special contents.

  • I installed Cimy User Extra Fields to add extra fields to wp-signup.php

  • In my registration page I make an Ajax call to wp-signup.php to grab the form and style it.

The problem is that if registration fails (e.g. use an existing email in database), you are redirected to the default WordPress registration page, with the WordPress template...

Is there a way to create a page for registration with extra-fields with a custom template?

I've also tried using the Simplr User Registration Form plugin but is not working...

Have a look at pie-register http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pie-register/ It allows adding custom fields to the registration form.

A great tool for frontend log-in and registration is theme-my-login http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/theme-my-login/

I've had a similar issue on an un-released site and used a combination of 2 plugins.

I used the user meta pro plugin for front end registration and login. It's a cheap plugin for a premium ($19 I think). The free version might even handle it.

Then the redirection plugin to handle exceptions.

You can also take a look on Profile Builder Plugin, that allows you to customize your website by adding a front-end menu for all your users, giving them a more flexible way to modify their user profile or register new users (front-end user registration). You can add custom fields to your registration form and customize the redirect page.
