Learn How To Boost WordPress User Profiles With ProfileGrid Integration
RegistrationMagic is built from the ground up for creating and processing registration and login forms on a WordPress site. In addition to that, it offers a front-end private user area, for your site users to view (or edit if allowed), submitted forms, and other related information. But if you wish to take it a step further – to offer your registered users the option to build public or selectively public profiles, interact with fellow users, offer membership with content restrictions, etc. – RegistrationMagic has a free companion plugin, ProfileGrid, that does all this and more. When installed alongside RegistrationMagic, ProfileGrid serves as its dedicated extension, adding an extra dimension to RegistrationMagic’s WordPress User Profiles capabilities. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can do:
User Profile Pages
RegistrationMagic publishes a front-end user area using a special shortcode. Also, this is a private area, only accessible to currently logged in user. When you install ProfileGrid, its own user profile pages take over, and RegistrationMagic’s user area is neatly tucked into the private section of ProfileGrid’s beautifully rendered user profile pages. Moreover, all this happens automatically. It means you do not need to modify anything. ProfileGrid simply uses RegistrationMagic’s existing front-end shortcode and turns it into WordPress user profiles. Also, ProfileGrid even gives you the option to show/hide or rename RegistrationMagic’s user area tabs. To do this, just go to ProfileGrid—> Global Settings —> RegistrationMagic Integration
RegistrationMagic fetches user profile images from Gravatar – which is part of the WordPress family of services. But if the user does not have a Gravatar profile, it is replaced by a generic placeholder image. Too many of them and things can start looking a little drab. Moreover, being a user profile plugin first, ProfileGrid allows your users to upload their own profile and cover images. It Is a robust system where you can define upload sizes from the dashboard and set default images for both user profile and cover. Further, on the front-end, users can crop and pan their uploaded photos. These photos automatically show inside RegistrationMagic replacing Gravatar and placeholder images.
If you are planning to offer content based memberships to your users, ProfileGrid adds group registration based tiers and even allows users to submit and share content selectively. Also, this feature ties in with default WordPress posts and pages seamlessly allowing you granular content-based access.
User Activity Features
ProfileGrid comes with multiple user networking features like Friends System, In-Profile Notifications, Private Messaging, etc. Further, all these features become instantly available to your users through their revamped profile pages as soon as you install ProfileGrid.
ProfileGrid uses a novel group-based user registration system. These groups offer powerful features for user management and moderation. If you are registering users for clubs, teams, factions, etc., these can prove quite handy. You even have the option to assign and label managers to each group who have a separate set of capabilities.
Of course, the integration is not one-sided. RegistrationMagic adds powerful features to ProfileGrid’s native system.
After exploring all the things possible with ProfileGrid, you will find rewarding new ways to use the combination to your advantage. Every site is unique in its own way. With the comprehensive ecosystem offered by RegistrationMagic and ProfileGrid, you can choose among many different ways to turn the key.
