How to force a registering user to enter the person that referred them

        Greetings Dave,
        I am creating a user registration form for a membership site using Fluent Forms inside Fluent CRM with the double opt-in feature for security purposes.
        I am also using Affiliate WP pro and I was wondering if it is possible to add a field to the user registration form that the person filling out the form can add in the person that referred him. This way if the newly registered person makes a purchase via Woocommerce the affiliate would get the commission.

        I can achieve this via a Woocomerce free product purchase using a coupon linked to the Affiliate, but I feel that is not the best way to go?

        Any thoughts and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

              If you use Fluent Forms Pro, they have an integration module for AffiliateWP. Here’s some info on that:

                  Thanks again for the reply and link, however the documentation does not state how to create a an input field that the user can input the persons referral code/url, The way it is set up on that doc page is that a user follows a referral link and if they fill out the form successfully it create a referral from the owner of the link. I need it set up so that the user filling out the form has to manually enter the referral code. Seeing I am at the beginning stages I am open to any ideas even if it is using addition plug-ins with or without using AffiliateWP or Fluent Forms.

                    In most cases, I would think you would just want AffiliateWP to do it’s thing automatically. It is harder to game that. So, if it were me, I would probably ask for a referrer like that in plain text and make it optional. And, if they enter something, you get notified and you manually match them up to the affiliate.

                    There’s probably a way to do it automatically, but I’d need to set up a test install and do some testing and I kinda don’t have the time for it. But, there’s probably a way. I just don’t know if I would automate that because people could take advantage of it to essentially give themselves lifetime commission on thsmselves.

                      Sound advice thank you my friend.
                      I did some more research and found out I can create a child webpage and assign it to an affiliate, I think I like that Idea way better.
                      then the rep can just have a client go to his page with a url that looks like site-name/member/Mary

                        Thank you for helping me out with my user name issue.
                        Just so you know, I tried every combo imaginable, leaving all 3 password fields blank, changing password, etc. only thing i did not do was change email address.
