Adding user profiles to your WordPress site

Front-end User Profile - WordPress

WordPress comes with its own user management system which allows you to easily add and edit users from the wp-admin. It even provides each user with their own profile where they can edit their details.

However, whilst the default user management system may be fine for multi-author sites where each user needs to access the dashboard, it is not a great solution if you don’t want users to be able to access the wp-admin or even know they are using a WordPress site.

If that’s the case then you’ll want to use a plugin that allows users to manage and edit their profiles from the front-end of your site. Luckily Ultimate Member makes adding user profiles to the front-end of your site an absolute breeze.

All you have to do is install and activate the plugin and it will automatically create a user page where users can view and edit their profile. You can even add custom fields to your profiles so you can collect any type of information from users.
