Banana User Profiles


There are a few hundred plugins out there which intend to solve the same problem: How to get user profiles, login and registration features outside the Admin area.

Many of them are amazing, but I did not yet find a solution that just provides the basics and allows me to do the rest.

I created this plugin as a solid base to use in the different websites I work on and let the appearance and custom stuff be handled by the theme or even a complementary self-made plugin.


  1. Upload the plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin.
  3. Create the necessary pages for the plugin to work.
    3.1. For the login page, use the shortcode [login].
    3.2. For the registration page, use the shortcode [registration].
    3.3. For the profile page, use the shortcode [show_my_profile].
    3.4. For the edit profile page, use the shortcode [edit_my_profile].
    3.5. For the registration finished page, just create a page and add whatever you want.
  4. Go to Settings > User profiles and add the page IDs for the pages you created in the previous step.
