Example template customization

Now that you've learned how to customize the templates and where to find them, let's make a small test modification. In this example we will add some custom text above the registration form. 

Remember this is just a very simple example, custom text can obviously be added through the WordPress page editor.

1
Navigate to the wp-content/plugins/wp-user-manager/templates/ folder on your server. ( You should connect via FTP or any other way you use to access your files )
2
You will notice files and sub folders. The registration form template file can be found into the subfolder " forms".
3
Open the subfolder " forms" and copy the file registration-form.php
4
Now navigate to your theme's folder - for example wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen
5
Create a new folder called " wpum" if it does not exist.
6
Because the registration-form.php file was into a subfolder called " forms" - you must create a new folder called " forms" into your " wpum" folder.
7
Now paste the registration-form.php file that you have previously copied. Your structure should now look like this

8
Open up the file with your favorite code editor and add or modify the content of the file. In this example i've simply added a custom phrase at the top of the form:

Save the file and visit your registration page ( remember the registration form is visible only when NOT logged in ) and if you've done everything correctly, you will see your custom phrase on top of the form.
