I am trying to set up a login where in each users profile they can add their CV and details. These details and CV will then be shown in a page that can be seen by anyone. The user has the option to edit its information whenever desired and update the information seen in a public page.

For this goal so far I figured out that I need the TML plugin for the login, then I have been trying with Contact Form 7 and Contact Form DB to make the database that gathers the information from the Contact Form7. The problem is connect the profile or a contact form to the user logged in without having to force the user to constantly add a new contact form to the website.

Can anyone point me any headers? Plugins I should use? Is this possible to set up with plugins? Thanks in advance.

Based on my experience, I can say that with contact form 7 plugin it will require lot of customization to achieve what you have mentioned. I will suggest to use BuddyPress plugin with BuddyPress Docs

BuddyPress will provide you profile with ability to edit from front end. Also, you can add different fields to profile from backend Users > Profile Fields. By default BuddyPress provides ability to add few basic fields to profile. For advance options you can use Buddypress Xprofile Custom Fields Type plugin.

I tried these just to share some screenshots with you. Below you will see how the the profile page looks by default with WordPress Twenty Thirteen theme.

  • So, would I be able to use each users profile information to be displayed in a public page? The idea is to be kind a portfolio page with each users information for employers to see. – UpARiver Mar 24 '16 at 17:35
  • Yes. If you access your site with /members at the end then you will see all list of members on your site. – Prasad Nevase Mar 25 '16 at 2:15
  • Is it possible to split the profile fields into 2? (Example, if I want a profile field for students and another for employers) – UpARiver Mar 25 '16 at 12:19
  • You can use BP Member Type Generator plugin for that. Eager to know how is it going so far :) ? – Prasad Nevase Mar 25 '16 at 12:57
  • Well, I had no idea how to set that up, so I created two groups - one for students and another for employers. Wow, there are soo many types of plugins! splice-creative.co.uk -Current state. Many thanks for the help so far! Would I be able to create different pages where you could see the two different types of members? (Example - Employers could go to a students page to see all the students informations and the same with Students seeing all the job offers) ? – UpARiver Mar 25 '16 at 14:44

I'm afraid that the combination of CF7 and CFDB can't solve your problem because CFDB doesn't allow user edit his own entry out of the box (You can read this link).

Actually, you don't need two plugins above. TML is enough. TML has a option called Themed profile, let user edit profile from front end. All you need to do is adding custom fields to user profile.

You can do it via custom code or plugins. There are many kind of this on the Internet.

Edit

You can use this plugin to add custom field to your site's user profile.

If you prefer coding, this blog will help you alot.

  • Definitely. WP has two built-in function: get_the_author_meta() and the_author_meta(). Both take two params: the_author_meta( $meta_key, $user_id );. You can use this to get user profile field in your porfilio page. – Tung Du Mar 24 '16 at 17:56
  • You can refer to this post for more code example about user profile. – Tung Du Mar 24 '16 at 17:58
  • But with plugins only, and without code, is it possible? Many thanks for the help btw. – UpARiver Mar 24 '16 at 18:12
  • I don't know any plugin that fit exactly your need. Maybe BuddyPress, but it bundled with many features ( that you may not need ) – Tung Du Mar 24 '16 at 18:22
