I am building a music eCommerce website, which sells some audios. I have built a sign up form with 5 text boxes of Name, Email, Password, Username, Phone number. I am saving this data in a wp-registration table.

How can I link this sign up form with the website in such a way that if a user registers, then only he is able to see all the music content, otherwise just the normal text.

Here is the sign up code.

      /* Template Name: Sign Up */
      $fNameErr  = $familyNameErr = $phoneErr = $emailErr = $passwordErr = "";
      $error_css = $fName = $familyName = $phone = $email = $password =  "";

      if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
      if (empty($_POST["fName"])) {
      $fNameErr = 'background-color:#ff4338';

      } else {
      $fName = test_input($_POST["fName"]);
      // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
      if (!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z ]*$/", $fName)) {
        $fNameErr = "*";

     if (empty($_POST["familyName"])) {
     $error_css = 'background-color:#ff4338';
   } else {
     $familyName = test_input($_POST["familyName"]);
     // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
     if (!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z ]*$/", $familyName)) {
        $familyNameErr = "*";

    if (empty($_POST["email"])) {
    $error_css = 'background-color:#ff4338';
    } else {
    $email = test_input($_POST["email"]);
    // check if e-mail address is well-formed
    if (!filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {
        $emailErr = "Invalid email format";

if (empty($_POST["phone"])) {
    $error_css = 'background-color:#ff4338';
} else {
    $phone = test_input($_POST["phone"]);
    // check if e-mail address is well-formed
    if (!preg_match("/^[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{4}$/", $phone)) {
        $phoneErr = "*";

if (empty($_POST["password"])) {
    $error_css = 'background-color:#ff4338';
} else {
    $password = test_input($_POST["password"]);
    // check if e-mail address is well-formed

global $wpdb;

$wpdb->insert('wp_registration', array(
    'First_Name' => $_POST['fName'],
    'Last_Name' => $_POST['familyName'],
    'Phone' => $_POST['phone'],
    'Email' => $_POST['email'],
    'Password' => $_POST['password']
), array(

  • how are you dealing with the audio files - are they already restricted from downloads somehow? – alexwc_ Aug 17 '17 at 15:07
  • Right now, they are on the downloads page and everybody can download them. I want to restrict this only for the login users. But I don't seem to link the sign up form with the sign form and the wordpress website. – Jon_Snow Aug 17 '17 at 15:08
  • well, it might be a bit more complicate than that to code. Check some plugins like Restrict Content Pro. Or check Easy Digital Downloads – alexwc_ Aug 17 '17 at 15:11

Maybe this plugins can help you


if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
    // you content
else {
    // you text


When the user is authorized, him ID was write in global array. This ID you can take from this array.

$current_user = wp_get_current_user();

I don't know structure your table, but you need to have user ID field like in wp_users table. Make a request to the database.

global $wpdb

$value = $wpdb->get_result("SELECT `user_name_in_your_table`
                            FROM `wp_registration`
                            WHERE `user_id` = '$current_user->ID'");

if($value[0]->user_name_in_your_table !== ''){
} else{

  • Would these plugins work for the custom sign up and custom sign in forms ? And I don't want to hide the full page. I Just want to hide the audio files. – Jon_Snow Aug 17 '17 at 15:09
  • @Jon_Snow view my update answer – Nikita Dudarev Aug 17 '17 at 15:12
  • but that if ( is_user_logged_in() ), won't that just check if a wordpress user is logged in or not. if ( is_user_logged_in() ) is using the wp-users table I guess and I am storing the data in a custom table wp-registration – Jon_Snow Aug 17 '17 at 15:16
  • @Jon_Snow It's your custom table? – Nikita Dudarev Aug 17 '17 at 15:33
  • Yes it is. I just don't know how to integrate that with the the content of the website – Jon_Snow Aug 17 '17 at 16:54
