In Add New Attendee form, how can i assign this registration to the user?

That mean the administrator can create student user account, then helps that student register an event.

I installed the Espresso members plugin too. But there is no way to make this feature work.

If I understood you correctly, you wish to add a customer/student as a WordPress user and then add them to an event?

If so the manual way would be to go to the WordPress options Users > Add new user and set up a user. Then go to the Event Overview, hover over the event in question and click Attendees. Then click the Add New User button at the top.

The new attendee and the users email address should be the same. However, currently it is a moot point as everytime a user registers for an event or is manually added, the attendee is created again, so if the user signs up to 5 events, 5 instances of that attendee will be created.

This will change in 3.2, so that only one attendee is created and events are attached to that attendee.

What the WP User Integration (Members) add on does, is when a user is logged in it will prefill the registration forms with their basic details (name/email/address).

If you are looking for an automated way to register users to WordPress, then you will need to use a third party plugin such as S2Members

Yes, i want to add a WordPress user to an event.

I added a WordPress user(, then I added new attendee with this email.

After that, i logged to this user(, went to My Events menu, there was no any events added.

What did i do wrong?

The user account needs to be logged into the site when making the registration (registrations made by the admin will not make the event show up in the My events screen).

I’d recommend using a plugin that you can use to “Switch” to that user without logging out as admin. Here is a link to one:
