Hi there,
We have a bit of confusion around the user integration function – do the users first need to create a WP user profile and then they have access to specified events to register to or does registering for the event create a user profile for them automatically? If the latter is the case, it doesn’t seem to be working, no new users have been populated when registering.
Thank you for your help!

Hi there,

It depends on your settings, you can have it set up for either.

In the event editor you’ll have options specifically for each event:

‘Force Login for registrations’ set to Yes means users must be logged in to register, if they aren’t they will be prompted to log in.

‘Auto Create Users with registrations’ means that if you allow registrations when not logged in (the previous setting is set to No) then when a registration is made EE will create a user account using the ‘First Name’, ‘Last Name’ and ‘Email Address’ system questions.

‘Default role for auto-created users’ sets the role the above accounts will be set to when created.

All of the settings above are event specific as you may want specific events to force login, others to create users accounts etc. However, we have a section you can set the ‘default’ settings used for new events created in:

Event Espresso -> Registration Form -> User Integration Settings.

Set the settings there how you want them to be for new events from this point on but for events you’ve already create you’ll need to edit each one and set the above settings to what you want to use.
