Excellent, well written and documented plugin. Can’t wait to see this evolve. Good luck with sales!

Very useful plugin, does this work with wp super cache?

Sure does! If you have any problems just let me know and I’d be happy to help.

Works great, thanks!

Hello, I have seen your nice plugins, but can your plugins help me to make two groups (Male, Female) in my website where each group has its own private category and the new user has to select one of them when he/she register on the web site. Thank you,

thank you RandyHoward for your prompt reply, I need to make some private categories for Female, for that I need the new register user confirm his/her gender when he/she register through the registration form, or if he/she register through facebook login confirm his/her gender through the profile after he/she access to this private category. and my website will be in two languages (Arabic and English) and some names will be in Arabic language.

Still waiting your confirmation if the new register user can confirm his/her gender when he/she register through the registration form

Sorry for the delay. Yes it is possible for your user to confirm their gender through the registration form, but that is not built into the plugin. You would have to add the gender fields to your registration form, then set the result to their user profile as a field titled “gender”.

Here are instructions on how to modify your registration form: https://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Registration_Form Here are instructions for setting user profile information: http://justintadlock.com/archives/2009/09/10/adding-and-using-custom-user-profile-fields

If you need further assistance let me know. It’s possible I could modify a custom version of the plugin for you to suit these needs.


When I install the plugin is there a way to use it as I function on single.php page to determine if a visitor is male or female? For example to use something like <php echo WP_Gender_Bender() ?>. Does it determines the age based on IP?


Hi, sorry for the delayed response. The plugin itself doesn’t have any functions, but it will store the visitor gender in the standard wordpress user meta fields. You can retrieve the gender by doing this: <?php get_user_meta($user_id, ‘gender’); ?>

The plugin makes its determination based off the user’s email address, so you must collect their email address in order for the plugin to get their gender.

Thanks for your interest, if you have any further questions I’ll be happy to help.

I am interested in your plugin but I’d like to use it for batch uploads. Example: I’d load 100k records and the plugin would return the records with gender. Is this possible?



Hi, sorry for the delay in responding. I don’t recommend this plugin for batch uploads. I recommend checking out towerdata.com for batch uploads. That service will allow you to batch upload. My plugin uses this service to get its data, but the plugin isn’t really designed for batch uploads.
