Not totally sure I get it. You’re splitting up a users profile into separate forms? Could see that there might be some advantage to that… dividing different data into unique sections. Is that the goal of this? And even if there are three or more forms per user role, all of the data stays intact? (Meaning each individual form is connected to the user role/account?)

Hi Peter. Yes, that is the primary use of this plugin. We have worked with UM sites where the profile form becomes ridiculously large (50+ fields) and this plugin solves that problem. All the data is synced, yes.


I purchased the pro version and have inserted the UM form shortcode into the body of the profile tab as shown above. However, it only shows the original (first created) profile form in the tab without and not as an edit screen (after hitting the edit profile under settings (gear) on profile screen).

How can I get support?

To edit a form on a custom tab you must use the Edit button below the form. The gear edit menu is only associated with the main profile form on the main tab.

I am using your normal version and wondering if this works for the following:

1. I have a multisite network using Ultimate Member
2. the issue is that Country field is UM native not WP meta field, so if I add that in site.com it will not appear in site.com/X, so my question, can i use this Pro version to create a tab in site.com/X that will show when I update country profile in site.com/? UM is very good but still has this major issue when it comes to multisite, myCRED uses a main template and log to store all information from a multisite, this is awesome and was hoping your pro version could help a workaround around meta data displayed.

Thank you,

Hi Jorge

We have not tested the plugin on a multisite and it only extends UM so I doubt that it would ‘fix’ any issues that UM has.


first of all, excuse me for my english .
Today I purchased your plugin.
I would like to have the possibilty to print the information contained into a profile tabs.
Is it possible ?

I purchased the tabs pro. I see the tabs on the profile when I’m on my computer, but not when I’m on my phone….reason for this?

Kindly select select the ‘Profile Tab’ template under the Template setting while creating the form. Thanks !

Hi Marcel, It is not compatible with UM 2.0 yet. We are in the process of making it fully compatible. Thanks

I just ordered Pro version. In description is says i have to active my license with a license key. Where can i find it?

Thanks for response

Hi Nicolas,
You must have got an email containing the license key and all the instructions needed for installation of the software.
Thanks !

Icon Changes for Tabs

This might be obvious but I dont know what to place into the
section that indicates which Icon Code to use, besides the basic Tab icon
“um-faicon-tags” –> Enter an icon code to appear on the tab.

Is there a list of Icons and their codes that I have missed?
