Need to create a custom registration form for your WordPress site?
While WordPress does include its own native registration form, it’s super basic and not a great option for a site that allows public user registration. Using a WordPress registration form plugin will give you a lot more flexibility for creating user-friendly, custom forms.
You’ll be able to add custom fields, display the form anywhere on your site, and, depending on the plugin, even accept payments and integrate with other tools.
In this post, I’ve collected the six best plugins for WordPress registration forms, including both free and premium options. Let’s get started!
Six Best WordPress Registration Form Plugins
RegistrationMagic is a popular freemium option that’s 100% focused on helping you create custom WordPress registration forms.
At a basic level, it helps you create your own custom registration forms that you can add anywhere on your WordPress site (or even on non-WordPress parts of your site via an HTML embed code). You can…
- add as many custom fields as needed
- assign users to a specific WordPress role
- allow file attachments.
You also get other useful features/settings such as:
- Option to auto-generate a password or send the username/password to a user’s email
- Custom notification emails
- Facebook login
- Form analytics to see your registration conversion rate, including individual field analysis
- Option to hold new registrations for manual admin approval
For more advanced registration forms, you can also charge for registration, including creating multiple different payment plans. There’s also a neat option that lets you create one-off registration forms for specific events (including limited registration numbers). For example, you could create a registration form for a specific webinar that you’re planning to run.
Finally, RegistrationMagic also includes tools to help you and your users after registration:
- You can view/manage all of your users via a custom backend user management area that gives you a lot more options than the default WordPress tool.
- Users can get a front-end area to manage their profile information.
- You can create front-end user views, like creating a public member directory of people who registered via your form.
All in all, this is a great one for both simple and advanced WordPress registration forms.
Price: Starts free at WordPress.org. Premium version from $89.
