It seems as though for every site we constantly have to register for new products, services, groups, etc. While this can sometimes be a momentary painless thing to do, if the registration process is frustrating, we may give up and not think it’s worth it. These best WordPress registration plugins create support both for users registering as well as admin control on the backend to make everyone’s job easier with registration.

Best WordPress Registration Plugins

Profile Builder

This plugin controls front-end logins, profiles, and registration for users. You can customize your website by adding a front-end menu for the users, giving them freedom to create their own profile and register new users. If you choose to give users administrator rights they can customize basic fields and add user fields to some front-end forms.

There are shortcodes that come with the plugins to enable a variety of things – from granting users front end access to adding login forms and logout functionality. Also, you can enable email confirmations for when people register and enforce all username and password details. Finally, you can chose which user roles view the admin bar and which profile fields that they can modify.


Custom User Registration Form Builder

Custom User Registration Form Builder allows you to create any type of form very quickly. There is an easy-to-use forms manager on the menu and you simply have to go to “Add New” where you will be presented with options for type, name, description, redirection, header, auto responder, and success message.

For the type you can decide if it is a contact form or registration form, and the password field does not need to appear if you choose “auto generate password.” You can name the form uniquely so it’s not visible on the front end of your website and you can see it. There is an option to redirect visitors to a specific page on your site or any URL. You can then decide if you want to send automatic messages and success messages to the registered person and customize from there as well.
