This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Client Portal – Private user pages and login


The WordPress Client Portal plugin creates private pages for each user. The content for that page is accessible on the frontend only by the owner of the page
after he has logged in.

The plugin doesn’t offer a login or registration form and it gives you the possibility to use a plugin of your choice.

The [client-portal] shortcode can be added to any page and when the logged in user will access that page he will be redirected to its private page.

For login and registration of users we recommend the free Profile Builder plugin.

You can then use the [wppb-login] shortcode in the same page as the [client-portal] shortcode.


  • Access the Private Page in the Users Listing in the admin area: screenshot-1.jpg
  • A Private Page edited using the Classic Editor: screenshot-2.jpg
  • A Private Page edited with the Gutenberg Editor: screenshot-3.jpg
  • The Settings Page for the Plugin: screenshot-3.jpg


  1. Upload and install the zip file via the built in WordPress plugin installer.
  2. Activate the WordPress Client Portal plugin from the “Plugins” admin panel using the “Activate” link.

Amazing plugin, amazing support. It’s enabled me to get a great client area up and running. Fitted my requirements perfectly when I used it with their other plugin ‘Profile Builder’. Thanks!

The newest version does not work as I expected. It is more complicated and confusing while I edit user data.
