  2. Click on Add New and select the “User Profile” as the form type.
  3. Enter a name.
  4. Select your preferred template

User Profile Settings

In the settings, depending on the template you chose you can change the headlines, texts, and colors. You can also display social media links and profile menu tabs

After saving the profile, a shortcode will be generated for you to copy.

That’s it! Your custom WordPress user profile is live and ready to use.

The last step is to add the user profile shortcode to a page.

NB: If you are using Gutenberg Block Editor you need to add the Shortcode block and then paste the shortcode in the field.
