Creating a User within WordPress is now possible with Visual Form Builder Pro and the Create User add-on.

What you get

The Create User add-on registers a new user in your WordPress install and automatically sends the registration email.

How to Use

The add-on is just another WordPress plugin, so installing and activating work just like you’d expect.  Feel free to follow the installation instructions here if you need some help with that.

  1. Once you have activated the plugin, simply visit the Visual Form Builder Pro menu and either create a new form or find one you’d like to edit.
  2. Drag and drop the Username, Password, and Email fields onto your form if they do not already exist
  3. All of these fields are required

What Happens When a Form is Submitted

When a user submits the form, the content is emailed just like every other Visual Form Builder Pro form and saved in the database just like a new Entry.

The only difference is that a new User is created.

That’s it!


For developers, there are two actions available: vfb_before_create_user and vfb_after_create_user. Please refer to the Hooks page for more information.

Do regular VFB Pro fields get added to the User Profile, too?

No.  Typical fields such as those under the Standard and Advanced tabs are not added to the newly created User.  Only the Username, Password, and Email fields are added to the new user account.
