Approximate read-time: 5 minutes
Do you want to add a password field to the default WordPress registration form? You know, the one that looks like this?
Unless you are a developer, that’s going to be tough.
For some developers, creating a custom WordPress registration system might sound fun. But at some point, it doesn’t make sense to re-invent the wheel!
Our plugin was created to help all kinds of users save time when developing new WordPress sites. Each and every feature of our WordPress forms plugin has been created with both developers and WordPress users in mind.
So today, we want to show you the easiest way to add password fields in WordPress registration forms. All you’ll need is our plugin, Formidable Forms.
And if you are a developer, don’t worry! Our plugin can be white labeled. That means you can take all the credit for building a custom user registration system. We promise we won’t tell. ?
User registration forms + more
Sure, you need a place where users can choose and type passwords. But you also need a user registration system to manage the entire process.
A quick search of the WordPress.org plugin directory will reveal there are many plugins that can help with user registration. The trouble with most of those plugins? They just do one thing.
If you want users to register and set their password all at once, all you need is Formidable Forms + our user registration add-on. This add-on features everything you need to create a custom registration system for your WordPress website.
But Formidable Forms also does a lot more than user registration. Let’s take a closer look!
The Formidable user registration form template
Want to add a password field to your WordPress registration form? Cut out the middle man and use our user registration form template! Here’s what it looks like:
The best part of this template? You can expand it with custom fields to collect whatever data you want. Need to know where users are located? Add a dropdown field with cities in your area. Want to let users add an optional description? Add a paragraph text field.
There’s more options too. For example, maybe you need to collect a large amount of data during the registration process. If so, you could turn your registration form into a multi-page form. Dividing up long forms into multiple pages can help conversions a lot.
Do you use an email platform like MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, or Aweber? You can set up your registration form to pass relevant data to your email platform using the dozens of 3rd party integrations built-into Formidable.
And of course, you could even trigger a notification email to send from your email service when a registration form is filled out. Or you could just send the confirmation email directly from Formidable Forms - whatever works best!
The Formidable user registration system
Of course, since Formidable is a drag and drop form builder, you can create WordPress forms however you like. But our user registration add-on makes things even easier by including even more form templates for user registration.
Login forms and password reset forms are also included in Formidable’s user registration system. Starting with these templates, it will be a lot easier to create a custom login form. Unless you want to use the default WordPress one:
We didn’t think so! Anyways, our add-on makes creating a user simple. It builds on the existing WordPress user roles so you don’t need to tweak anything to make it work. Just install and activate Formidable, place the forms where you need them, configure a few settings, and you’re done!
No need to manually code class inputs, input types, text names, user logins or anything else. We’ve got all that covered!
And if you are building an eCommerce site, our user registration system can be really helpful too. For example, if you are building a WooCommerce site, you can add custom fields to your registration forms and make things really easy for customers.
