Trying to create a new profile to add to a Contribution Page for memberships which includes fields for username and password for Wordpress member-only content. I cannot select the User Registration or User Account checkboxes for the new profile. There is also no 'Password' type field in the Add fields screen. I have 'Anyone can register' allowed in Wordpress and have CiviCRM Wordpress Member Sync and CiviCRM Profile Sync installed. What am I missing?

New Profile Form

  • does your Profile contain only Contact type fields? ie neither membership nor contribtion type fields

You need to select 'Account creation' option to required or optional under Advance setting of Profile

  • Thanks Pradeep, Account creation required is selected, but does not change the options for "Used for' in section above either before or after the new profile is saved.
