Interactive Profile Fields During Registration

  • David Veldt


    Hello Everyone,

    I believe this topic has been asked before, and I’ve seen it on the WordPress forum but it hasn’t been resolved, so I wanted to bring it up again.

    I’d like to make my registration form a little more interactive. Meaning, different profile fields depending on which type of user you select at the beginning. On my site (an athletic site), users can indicate whether they are a player, coach, parent or instructor. If you are a player, I want questions pertaining to their position, for example, to show. If you are an instructor, you may be interested in displaying your company name or website and so on.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this? Currently, profile fields are heavily geared towards players and it seems awkward for other users. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    anybody have any idea how to solve this issue….?



    I have looked over the forums and found several threads concerning this function but there seem to be no apparent solution to this issue. I would love an answer from somebody who has deeper understanding of buddypress to see if this is possible to accomplish or not.

    Is it possible to create multiple different registration forms or different fields to fill in depending on what the user selects when registering?

    All help would be much appreciated!



    I’m looking for a Buddypress compatible membership application plugin with functionality along the following lines:
    – The user should be presented with an application/registration form, with some mandatory and non-mandatory fields.
    – On completion, the application is submitted to a pending queue.
    – From the pending queue selected user roles should be able to ‘approve’ or ‘reject’ the application.
    – unapproved applicants have no access to the member content

    ‘Nice to have’ extras:
    – ability to select which of the registration fields (if any) should be displayed on the member register
    – ability to e-mail user: (i) confirming application submitted (and add a message regarding typical review times, etc.) (ii) approval/rejection e-mail templates and triggers, (iii) Welcome e-mail
    – application management in the front-end
    – ability to grant unapproved members limited access to membership areas, e.g. possibly to one forum only.

    I’m wondering whether something already exists? Be good to hear from anyone with suggestions. Many thanks.



    Anybody got this to work??



    I need to be able to show / Hide XProfile groups based on select value during the registration phase. I’m a newbie to all this so could someone please help on how accomplish this.

    Is that possible with buddypress? Has this plugin been created?





    Okay so this topic was started an year ago. I am hoping there is some update being made on this.

    I need to be able to do this. Even without the jQuerry just show specific fields for specific user types.

    Anyone has any idea on how to do this ?



    These plugins should help 😉

    This one is used for members to choose the group they want on registration.

    This plugin assigns specific profile groups to the roles you want.

    These both work great together, and I am using them on the most recent WordPress and BuddyPress versions.



    @marcella1981 hello i required same registration form as @davidveldt..and you have already given an solution to it but i cant understand where the ” pastebin ” you gave should be copy in buddypress theam..?
