Boost RegistrationMagic User Profiles With ProfileGrid Integration

RegistrationMagic is built from ground up for creating and processing registration and login forms on a WordPress site. It also 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 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 user focussed capabilities. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can do:

A. User Profile Pages

RegistrationMagic publishes a front-end user area using a special shortcode. 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 private section of ProfileGrid’s beautifully rendered user profile pages. 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 user profiles. ProfileGrid even gives you option to show/hide or rename RegistrationMagic’s user area tabs. To do this, just go to ProfileGrid—> Global Settings —> RegistrationMagic Integration

B. Profile Images

RegistrationMagic fetches user profile images from Gravatar – which is part of 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. But 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 dashboard and set default images for both user profile and cover. On front-end, Users can crop and pan their uploaded photos. These photos automatically show inside RegistrationMagic replacing Gravatar and placeholder images.

C. Content Restrictions

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. This feature ties in with default WordPress posts and pages seamlessly allowing you granular content based access.

D. User Activity Features

ProfileGrid comes with multiple user networking features like Friends System, In-Profile Notifications, Private Messaging etc. All these features become instantly available to your users through their revamped profile pages as soon as you install ProfileGrid.

Group Activities

E. User Groups

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 option to assign and label managers to each group who have separate set of capabilities.

Of course, the integration is not one sided. RegistrationMagic adds powerful features to ProfileGrid’s native system.

    Hi,
    Can the RegistrationMagic and ProfileGrid duo work in multilanguage mode?

    1. RegistrationMagic Staff

      Unfortunately, RegistrationMagic and ProfileGrid duo does not work in the multi-language mode. We have noted your requirement and forwarded it to the management team for review and possible inclusion in one of the future updates.

    An Admin or group manager can add an user to a group without the user requesting it ?
    Can a group manager update user profiles ?

    1. RegistrationMagic

      Yes, the administrator can add the users to any group from “ProfileGrid >> Members” in dashboard. Extension “Advanced Group Manager” allows Group Manager or Administrator to add the user to a group from the frontend. For details on this extension visit the link: https://profilegrid.co/multi-group-users-and-group-manager/

      A group manager cannot update the profile of users.

    Hi !
    Is there any way to configure an unique user registration form with a drop-down option for current groups created at ProfileGrid?
    is there any way to configure a field for reading the current user’s groups?
    Im interested in filter submissions forms by group and display them at a front page, any idea of how can i do this? (i dont care if i need a single page for each form’s sumission display, just need to know how to filter submissions by group)

    1. RegistrationMagic

      Each Group is associated with one RegistrationMagic registration form. You may link a group with one registration RegistrationMagic’s form in ProfileGrid’s Group settings. Groups tabs in the ProfileGrid user profile page displays the groups to which a user belongs. Feature to filter submissions forms by the group is not available as of now.

    Is there a possiblity to add custom profile fields wich info is requested via de registration form?
    Because, i created a custom registration form with this plugin. But no any info shows up on the profile page. not in the backend and not in the frontend :s

    1. RegistrationMagic

      You may add the custom fields in group registration form by referring the following steps :

      1) Login to the WordPress dashboard and go to the ProfileGrid menu.

      2) All Groups will be listed here, then go to the group Fields for a group.

      3) Next, you will see the list of fields for that group. You can edit, delete or add fields from here.

      If you are using RegistrationMagic form to sign up for a group then you will be required to map the form fields with Group fields to show in profile. For more details visit the link : https://profilegrid.co/profilegrid-registrationmagic-integration/

    why not show registration magic user in profile grid?

    1. RegistrationMagic

      The user must be a member of a ProfileGrid Group. You may visit this link:- https://profilegrid.co/profilegrid-registrationmagic-integration. For more details on RegistrationMagic-ProfileGrid integration.

    Can you explain how integration between RegistrationMagic user profile and ProgileGrid works?
    I created 2 roles in RegistrationMagic with each its own registration form. I failed to find where to assign a role to a specific form (The company regiration form should only be filled in by companies and Talent Registration Form only by talents)

    Now when I integrate profile grid with RegistrationMagic, I’m required to show registration tab and give title of the tab. I honestly don’t know what to do.

    Can you help?

    1. RegistrationMagic

      There is no specific integration required for RegistrationMagic and ProfileGrid to work together. You can activate both the plugins and use them. Refer to the following path to set the user role for a specific form:
      Go to RegistrationMagic-> All Forms-> Dashboard of the form-> Accounts-> check the option “Also create WP User account” and select the desired role in the dropdown of “Assign WordPress User Role”.
      Refer to the following link as a guide for RegistrationMagic and ProfileGrid integration integration:
      https://profilegrid.co/profilegrid-registrationmagic-integration/

      You may enable the RegistrationMagic registration tab in the PG profile page form “ProfileGrid >> Global Settings >> Registrations Forms” in the dashboard. Once you enable the tab, it will display under the settings tab on the profile page.

    Hi,
    my scenario is:
    1. the user has to complete profile data upon registration to get his/her credential access to the site.
    2. at the specific event/project (woo-commerce product), a user has to make a signature (agree) to the respective agreement-form, so the product will belong to her/his. This product only available for logged-in registered user.
    3. at the agreement-form, I want to show specific user personal data before the signature field to review. I mean, before the signature field, it shows , , , , etc to be reviewed to make sure that he is the correct user.

    my questions are:
    1. Is “RegistrationMagic” (RM) able to get/read the user records to achieve my #3 scenario?
    2. Is RM provide shortcodes?

    Thank you.

    1. RegistrationMagic

      Requirement #3 cannot be achieved through RegistrationMagic i.e.first reviewing the form and then show signature field.
      Yes, RegistrationMagic provides shortcodes for different functionalities. Refer to the following path to check them:
      Go to RegistrationMagic-> Dashboard of the form-> scroll down and you will find different options/shortcodes like User Directory, User Area under “Publish” section. You may click on the particular option and see the shortcode.
