Display Multi Page Registration Form in WordPress with ProfileGrid
Did you create a lengthy registration form that doesn’t fit in a single page? Do you want a multi page registration form in WordPress to register users in your membership site? Worry not. The WordPress ProfileGrid plugin can do it in a few simple steps.
Start the process of creating a multi page registration form in WordPress by activating ProfileGrid.
Utilizing the Power of Shortcodes
The ProfileGrid plugin supplies you with all the tools that you need to create a membership site. From essential Extensions to predefined Shortcodes there are features to make your work easy. Moreover, you will find an entire page full of shortcodes under the ProfileGrid menu.
However, these shortcodes reduce half of your work. They can create profile pages, group pages, show user map locations and even display group wall on your site.
In order to display multi page registration form in WordPress, we need to take our shortcode from the Shortcode page of ProfileGrid dashboard.
In the above image, I have marked the shortcode that we will use to display multi page registration form in WordPress. We will copy the shortcode: [PM_Registration type=“multipage” ID=“x”] from here and paste it in a registration page. Now, before I proceed to the next step, you need to know from where you can retrieve the value of “x”.
When you create a registration form for a group it gets listed in the Group Manager page. Every group has a group ID written on the bottom left corner of the group.
Now, in place of “x”, you have to put the group ID whose registration page you want to display on the frontend.
Creating a Registration Page
It’s time to put the multi page registration form shortcode on a new page. From the Pages section of your WordPress dashboard, create a new page.
You can see from the above image, I have created a Registration page here. Further, I pasted the shortcode and replaced the group ID from “x” to “3”. This means that the form of Group 3 will appear as a muti page registration form in WordPress. Now, click on ‘Publish’ and see the result on the frontend.
The above picture shows us the first page of the 3 pages long registration form. The ‘Next’ link on the bottom corner of the page shows the topic on the next page of the form. Hence, we could successfully display multi page registration form in WordPress with the help of shortcodes.
Often, membership sites require extensive data to register a user. This feature comes into use when you create a lengthy registration form that won’t fit in a single page. The shortcode evenly divides your form into separate pages so that you can display a clean spaced out form.
Creating Default Registration Page
Next, if you want this form to be your default registration form, you can follow this simple step. From the Global Settings page under the ProfileGrid dashboard menu, click the General option.
You will land up on a page similar to the one in the screenshot below. From here, in the Default WP Registration Page space, choose the new registration page.
Then click on ‘Save’. In this way, you can make your own form the default WordPress registration form.
Simple, Integrated, User-Friendly
So, you saw how easily we could display multi page registration form in WordPress with ProfileGrid. However, it was just a matter of a few clicks and we didn’t even have to code. All the codes are integrated with the plugin. This makes it so much popular among amateurs as well. Therefore, anybody can now create a membership site for professional or personal use.
