  1. Hi Gal,
    Nice tutorial! Many thanks for sharing your knowledge.
    I found your article by searching for a solution related to this webhook and a wp_query.
    I am creating a giveaway in my WordPress installation. When a user entry is created I save it to a CPT (my code is similar to yours, uglier, but similar), that works great.
    But, I have another post type that is the giveaway, where I set the prize, the winners quantity, etc. I have another Elementor form there which picks the winner with a wp_query over the user entries CTP. I use the same webhook for both forms, filtering by the form name to know when to create an entry or when to pick winner. The thing is that when trying to get post by wp_query to pick a winner I get a nasty 500 server error “Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php:1 )”.
    So, I have 2 questions:
    1. The easy one, how can I make this work? I would be nice to teak a few things and don’t trough my work away.
    2. The hard one, Is this the correct way to achieve this? Should I start over with a different approach?

    Many thanks!.

    1. Hi Gustavo, Server Error 500, is just the server way to say “there was an error”, You should check the error logs in the server to find out more about it.
      Or you can put your site in debug mode by pasting this code in wp-config.php (only do this if your site isn’t live):
      define('WP_DEBUG', true);
      define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
      define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true);
      @ini_set('display_errors', E_ALL);

      Overall your method should work.

  2. Hi Gal! Nice work
    Is there a way to create a used database separate from the main user database? I want the people who sign up as users to be different from the page admins and once they sign up to be taken to a separate dashboard where they can see some info specifically to them. Is there a way to do that or should I think about designing a whole interface from scratch with PHP?

  3. Hey Gal, i watched your video and it is very nice, thank you for the help but i have a problem, i created a popup form with elementor pro and do all steps like you in the video but it nothing happens. I activated the plugin and checked the form name but it will not create any new user… Can u help me pls? 🙂

  4. Thank u so much…
    You save me with this tutorial, its complete and comprensible (sorry for my bad english)
    I have a question, its posible add other camp for password (repeat password) or it will afect the fuction of the code/registration

      1. Hi Jorge, I’m just another guest here that is helped by this very post by Haddad.
        For password verification you can add another field (duplicate the password field) and then do validation in your function, or you can do it with javascript/jQuery to check if those two fields have same value.

        for redirection you can add this:
        $ajax_handler->add_response_data( ‘redirect_url’, home_url( ‘/my-shop’ ) );

  5. Hey Gal. great code!
    Can you give me a hint on how to register some of woocommerce fields?
    for example: name=”billing_phone” id=”billing_phone”

    1. Sorry, and one more thing, how do I update user role?
      I have looked at the wp_update_user page, but could not find an example.

      1. I believe those woocommerce fields are user meta (cmiiw), use this:
        update_user_meta( $user, ‘meta_key’, ‘meta_value’ );
        //$user is user id, returned by wp_create_user()
        //replace meta_key with ‘billing_phone’ or any other user meta key
        //replace meta_value with variable containing billing_phone, e.g. $form_data[‘billing_phone’]

        Use this to update user role:
        wp_update_user( array(
        ‘ID’ => $user, //user id returned by wp_create_user()
        ‘role’ => ‘new_user_role’, //user role slug

  6. Yet to test this Gal, but thankyou so much for creating this custom code/plugin! It really is sad that Elementor Pro doesn’t have a registration field in their plugin. I’ll let you know how I go!

  7. hi gal, I tested the plugin and it works fine, but it needs some fixe
    the code do creat the user in the WordPress with subscriber role,
    although the form doesn’t allow to add existed user to the database
    and display error message “Failed to create a new user: Sorry, that username already exists!”
    I found that if I set after submit action “email” to send the registred confirmation email
    the email still sent
    how to make a condition to the after submitting action “email”, to be sent only if the user-created
