    Auto create wordpress user from email collected in jotform

    Asked by sacredsmile on March 29, 2013 at 05:53 PM

    I am looking for a way to automatically create wordpress users from emails collected in my jotform forms. The idea is that when a person (after entering their email-adress) submits a form, their email adress is automatically sent to mysite.com (which is a wordpress installation) and a user is automatically created.


    Do any of you guys know of any way to achieve this. Is there any integration that will manage this? Do you know of any plugins for wordpress that could do this?

    That's possible with basic PHP and MySQL. Just enable your form to post it's array data to thank you page and create a php file that connects to your wordpress database. Here's a related instruction that would help.
