How to Create a Custom Instructor Registration Form for Tutor LMS
Do you want to create a custom WordPress registration form for registering Tutor LMS instructors?
Tutor LMS is a powerful learning management system that empowers educators to create and deliver engaging online courses. While Tutor LMS offers a range of features and functionalities out of the box, there are times when you may want to customize certain aspects of the platform to suit your needs better.
One crucial element of any learning management system is the instructor registration process. This process allows aspiring educators to join the platform, create their courses, and share their expertise with eager learners. However, the default registration form provided by Tutor LMS may not always align perfectly with your specific requirements.
In this article, we will dive into the process of building a custom instructor registration form for Tutor LMS using the powerful ProfilePress WordPress membership plugin.
Building a Custom Instructor Registration Form for Tutor LMS
Firstly, ensure the Tutor LMS addon is enabled in ProfilePress.
Navigate to ProfilePress>>Forms & Profiles and click the Add New button.
Here, you can choose between the Drag & Drop Builder and the Shortcode Builder. In this section, we will cover using the Drag & Drop Builder, so go ahead and click on the “Get Started” button beneath it.
Type in the desired name for your form and click on the Registration tab.
Next, select your desired template and use the drag & drop builder to customize the form using the intuitive drag & drop builder.
This powerful tool allows you to effortlessly rearrange the form elements, such as text fields, checkboxes, dropdown menus, and more, simply by dragging and dropping them into place.
If you activate the custom fields addon, you can create and add custom registration fields to the form to collect additional profile information from the registering instructors.
You can preview how the form will look by clicking on the “Live Preview” button.
Customize Your Form’s Settings
In Form Settings, you can completely customize various aspects of your form to align with your preferences. You can effortlessly modify the form headline to craft a compelling message that resonates with your users.
You can modify the form headline, colors, button labels, and registration settings. You can also select the user role to assign to the new users and disable the username requirement.
Additionally, you can fine-tune the colors and appearance of the form elements to match your website’s branding and aesthetic.
The Form Settings also grant you control over crucial registration settings. You can specify the user role that new registrants will be assigned, allowing you to segment and manage your user base effectively.
The most important thing here is to set the “New User Role” to “Tutor Instructor”, causing every user that registers via this form to be an Instructor.
Once you have finished customizing your form, click on the “Save Changes” button to save your form.
After saving the form, copying the shortcode conveniently displayed directly below the form title is crucial. This shortcode will be used in the next step, allowing you to seamlessly embed the form into any desired location on your website.
Creating the Custom Instructor Registration Page
To showcase your newly created custom registration form on your WordPress website, you’ll need to embed it into a new page. Follow these step-by-step instructions to create a new page:
In your WordPress dashboard, go to Pages>>Add New
Type in a suitable name for the registration page. If you use the block editor, click the plus icon and search for a ‘shortcode’.
Click on the shortcode icon to insert the shortcode block on the page. Then, paste the custom registration form shortcode you previously copied above.
Click on the ‘Publish ‘button to save your page.
