WP-user integration

Dear Josh, as I mentioned in one of my billion posts 🙂 we are using WP-members Plugin for WordPress and not (yet) the WP-user-integration for Eventespresso. We would like to have the feature that WP-members data can be modified by the memebers and automatically copied to the EE-registration form. But we don’t want the members to be leaded to the WordPress backend.

So few questions: .

  1. Does WP-Userintegration leads the WP-members to the WP-backend (for subscribers) or does it provide an own screen for user data editing (WP-Members does)?

  2. Is it possible to add own questions to the WP-user integration login, which are always required for our meeting registrations(WP-Members offers this opportunity)?

  3. And finally,if no custom questions can be added and automatically copied to event registration, would it be possible to combine WP-Members with WP-User Integration? Thanks, dh

1) Yes, it leads the users to the WP backed.

2) It’s not possible to add questions to the login via WP user integration plugin. If the WP-members plugin extends the standard WordPress login, then it would have the same effect, as the WP user integration add-on uses the standard WordPress login.

3) It might be possible, but it’s not a feature that is included with the WP-user integration add-on. This would need to be custom developed.

By the way, your account page has the WP user integration add-on listed in the downloads section. So if you’d like to try it out, you should be able to download it.

Thanks. Yes, I downloaded it.
But as we want to go Online quite soon, we will need to setup a sandbox to try if WP-Members works with WP-User Integration properly.

Btw.if these two addons do NOT cooperate, it would be a really important feature for next EE-updates:
Avoiding the WP-Backend for event participants and full editing option regarding the own data, i.e. arrival and departure times or institution name and address by the participants. If you could integrate WP-Members Addon, it would make life easier (at least for me).

The WP-User integration is supposed to enable that the personal information (at least first name, name and email address) auto-fills in the personal information on the event registration form. Is there anything required that this works? Do I need to activate this function somewhere (apart from activating “anyone can register” and “members only event”)?

You shouldn’t need to make the events member only for this to work. Activating the WP-user integration alone should make it possible to auto fill the information entered on the user profile page under “Events profile information” and the first name, last name, and email fields from the standard WordPress user profile fields.

Ah, now I understand.
The user have to enter the first name, name and email during the WP-registration process, but these details will not be automatically taken for the event registration. In order to have this feature, the newly registered member has to visit the WP-user-backend and fill in the details again in the region “Events profile information” and only then these details will be automatically filled into the events registration.
But that’s not really a big advantage. The user has to give in his name and email two times and he has to get orientated in the raw WP-backend.

I will try if this works and will let you know.

In this case our wish list is:
1. The user can edit these details without having to enter the backend.
2. The user should have a choice, either to take his own details to the event registration form automatically or to fill in manually new details for another person (i.e. if he wants to register a colleague)

That would be great,

Neither the first name, name or e-mail address nor the further details entered in the section “Events profile information” will be automatically filled into the Event Espresso registration form.
Very sad. Because this would have been an opportunity to pre-define users we already know with all address details. That would have been such a big advantage for V.I.P meetings…well..
It does not work. I absolutely do not know why, but seems, that it is similar to the group registrations.

Neither the first name, name or e-mail address nor the further details entered in the section “Events profile information” will be automatically filled into the Event Espresso registration form.

How’s that? Are they not logged in, or is this something that the other member’s plugin is doing?

The WP user integration will auto-fill all the information into the fields if the user is logged in while registering.

We are using WP-Members plug-in for collecting the log-in data. All events are classified as “members only events”. The data collected by WP-Members, I can see in the section “Events profile information”. But none of this information will be used for EventEspresso registration. Maybe it is the result from using WP-Members plugin, but this plugin offers a simple option to edit own data for the subscribers, without forcing them to enter the WP-back-end.

WP User Integration uses the wp_users table in your database. If your membership plugin does not store data in the wp_users table, then it will not work with WP User Integration.

We are using WP_Members and it does auto-fill first name, last name, and email address into the EE event registration form. That plug-in does write to the WP Users table, so the info comes over fine. Our challenge is that the auto-filled data is editable even though I set the checkbox, “Make autofilled fields editable?” to No. That’s what that is supposed to control, right? I thought it might be a conflict between WP_Members and EE, but I just tested on clean install running only these 2 EE plugins, and it doesn’t work there either. I just upgraded to the lastest of both EE and WP User add-ons. Is this a known bug, or is there a way to make that work? Thanks!

Hi there,

It’s a known issue and will be addressed in the next version of Event Espresso. It’s scheduled to be released in the following week.

I have a question related to the discussed issue. I can see EE profile propagated correctly in an event registration form. If I modify some of the fields, such as address, the updated information is stored in the event registration attendee database but NOT updating the EE profile. Is it a bug or anyway to enforce the update.
