How to Create a WordPress Registration Form?

**This article is out of date. Instead, go to our WordPress registration page starter guide or our WordPress Registration Form homepage.

There are a couple of ways to create a WordPress Registration form. Obviously, the first way to create a WordPress Registration form is using RegistrationMagic form builder plugin. However, this form needs to be integrated with the default WordPress registration.

On the other hand, the second method is clearly for users who are not WordPress admins. In fact, we learn to configure WordPress’s own registration page with the help of RegistrationMagic.

The first method to create a WordPress Registration Form

Go to RM “All Forms” from your WordPress dashboard.

Click “New Form” to create one. For this purpose, we name the form as Form1 with username, password and email fields pre-integrated.

Further, click on Add Fields or display fields to incorporate fields or display fields respectively. Save your configuration.

Accordingly, return to “All Forms” and copy the shortcode from the Clipboard of the New Form.

Navigate to “All Pages” and create a new page. Name it according to your wish. Paste the shortcode in the body section of the page. Click “Publish”. Your form is now visible on the front end.

Double-check to be sure if all the fields you added are planted on the form. Your WordPress Registration Form is now created.

The second method to create a WordPress Registration Form

There are users who do not have access to the WordPress dashboard. These are the individuals using the WordPress site to log in using their credentials.

Here we explain the way your user can navigate to the registration form from the WordPress webpage. This is completely for the users without a WordPress admin access. In this case, we integrate our registration form into the default WordPress registration page.

From the “Settings” section on your WordPress dashboard click on “General”.

Integrating Form1 to default WordPress registration page

However, the priority is creating a more user-friendly environment. Users will like to register with the form created by you using RegistrationMagic. For this reason, we override the default registration page of WordPress integrating the form we created. Eventually, Form 1 will override the default registration page.

From the RegistrationMagic plugin on your WordPress dashboard go to “Global Settings”.

Earlier, clicking “Register” took you to the page asking for credentials. That was the default registration page of WordPress. However, clicking “Register” now after selecting Form1, you are redirected to the page with the form in it.

Shared below is a screenshot of the form that has replaced the default registration page. In conclusion, this completes the guide to create a WordPress Registration Form.
