EE3 User Integration – Auto create an account during registration?

I am wondering if it is possible to auto create an account during user registration in ee3 AND have it related to My Events.

Here are the things I am trying to accomplish:
-I need people to see event details on my site without having to register for a new user account first.
-I need users to be able to cancel their own registrations (which means I need to use ee3 and have people register; I recently downgraded to ee3 for this functionality)
-I would like to streamline the User Creation process to have it happen during the event registration.

I read this thread ( and was able to auto create accounts during registration, however, the user created during the registration did not relate back to the registration itself (meaning the registration does not show up in My Events under the new user).

Please help!

Hi Kelly,

The code snippet provided in the thread you linked to does not link the registration with the user during the creating of that user, but it is possible to do.

I have previously provided and example of how this can be done here:

Its very similar to the other snippet however this one will check if the EE3 WP user Integration add-on is installed and active when it creates the user, if it is it will use a function available within that add-on to add the registration to the user.

Try adding that to either your themes functions.php file or a Custom Functions Plugin and retest.

Note, these snippets are unsupported and not heavily tested by ourselves (the support team provide them to help users and provide an example, sometimes they will need to be improved upon). I’ve not had any problems with the snippet and it works well on a couple of my local sites but please be sure to fully test it works as expected before using it.
