    Hi Vivek,
    Please create a member type field and you can use it to let users choose their members type.

    For more details, Please see

    Thanks, but if i dont want to call the field “Member Type” in the reg form, but want to set a member type at the backend basis the value in a registration field, eg “I am a:”

    Also, what would be clean way to rename a member type later say if i call it “Teachers” now, when i am in one city (say Pune), but when i move to another city, in a few months, i will have separate types “Pune Teachers” and “Mumbai Teachers” and so on.

    At that time i shall need to do some custom code to interpret 2 fields in the reg form “I am a…” and “I live in..” and basis the combination entered, assign Pune Teachers, Pune Students, MUmbai Teachers etc

    You can name the field anything. It is a select/radio field that allows selecting one or more type. You can name it anything you want.

    The plugin can not auto update member type based on when a user moves. You will need to handle this case via core or a better strategy is to create member types of these values and let the user update their profile when they move.

    A member type can be anything, It is just a way to orgnize your users.
