Front-end edit user profile shortcode

Hello Luis,

There is no way currently for a user to edit their profile from the front end, but we do have the [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS] shortcode (requires WP User Integration), which allows a user to see their events on the front end, and click a link to head to their profile if they need to edit something.

I’m a bit confused as to what this means as found here:

> The WP User Integration update includes some fixes to the payment
> confirmation page for WordPress 3.5. It also includes a major new
> feature we think you’ll find useful. We know how difficult it is to
> deal with editing user profiles for WP User Integration if you don’t
> want to give your users access to the WP backend. We minimized this
> somewhat with the addition of a My Events front-end shortcode
> recently, bringing the My Events page to the front end of the site.
> But users would still need to access the backend to update their user
> profile and add their address information to have those things saved
> for their next registration. This is why we built a shortcode that
> creates an edit user profile page and includes the Event Espresso
> profile fields. The only other way to bring these profile fields to
> the front end would be to code your own page or modify a plugin like
> Theme My Profile.
> The edit user profile page also uses themeroller styles, so if you
> have themeroller active in your template settings, the edit profile
> fields will be styled accordingly. Be sure to check our documentation
> pages for documentation on how to use this new shortcode.

Hi Luis,

No problem.. Thanks for the help. How would I delete the profile link in My Events Shortcode?

You could try adding this to your theme’s style.css file.

/* Remove Your Profile link */     
 .button-primary {
            display: none;
