    Front-End Users Demo

    Front-End Only Users is a user management and membership plugin that allows for front-end user registration and login, and for admins to restrict access to portions of their websites to certain users. No need to give access to your WordPress dashboard (unless you want to).

    Includes Gutenberg blocks for the following features: register, login, logout, user search, user list, edit account, forgot password and confirm forgot password!

    Front End User Key Features

    • Customizable membership fields for front-end user registration
    • Pure CSS-styled front-end login form, user registration form and edit profile form
    • Front-end users supports all input types for fields, allowing you to create a custom user profile
    • Front-end user input-based redirects
    • Front end user notifications: Fully customizable set of user emails. Create as many unique email messages as you want and then assign the message of your choice to specific actions.

    Simply insert the user registration shortcode below on any page to create a user registration form, allowing visitors to sign up as users on the front end of your site. User level selection is also available on registration.


    Alternatively, you can use the included Gutenberg blocks. Just search for the feature you want (e.g. “login” or “register”) and add the block to the page.

    The front end users are separate from the standard WordPress users, so they have no access to the back end of your site. You can restrict access of different pages to specific users. Also, user management is simple and effective. Additionally, there is a bulk user import feature, via spreadsheet, to make user management and getting started with front-end users even easier.

    Ideal for restricted content, membership, dating sites and more!

    Front-End Only Users is completely customizable using CSS and is easily personalized. The available registration shortcode, login shortcode and other user shortcodes, can be used to insert registration forms, login forms, edit profile forms and many more forms on any page of your website. You can also make use of shortcodes for content restriction, to restrict access to frontend users who are logged in.


    Insert the login shortcode above on any page to display a login form, allowing front end users to log in to access restricted content.

    [restricted]Content to restrict goes here[/restricted]

    Any content placed between the restricted shortcodes above will only be shown to users who are logged in. Further options are available to restrict access to only those who have a specific value for a custom user field.

    Create different user fields in the registration form for members to fill out and customize content based on their profiles. User shortcodes are available to display front-end user profiles or allow visitors to perform a user search. Customize forms with CSS to suit your user management needs using the Admin panel.

    Type any shortcode name and help (ex:[login help) in any WordPress page to get a complete list of the shortcode’s attributes.

    Front End User Additional Features

    • Personalize the experience of your site with the [user-data] shortcode
    • UTF-8 support
    • Front end user features: user registration form, login form, edit user profile form, account management, user listings or searches, user profiles and more!
    • Back end user management features: add new fields, add new users, email settings and options
    • One-click installer to quickly set up the basic front end user pages and functionality
    • Available public functions for total control and conditional behavior (some programming experience suggested)

    If you have existing members that you’d like to import into the plugin or if you’d like to export your current users to perform bulk updates, no need to worry. Front-End Only Users has a helpful user import feature. If you have a lot of users that you need to add into the system, you can easily perform a user import from a spreadsheet, to get all users into the plugin in one shot.
