What is the best way to sync user accounts between Webflow and WordPress? Is it possible?
https://www.example.com <— Webflow site (membership + e-commerce enabled)
https://learn.example.com <— WordPress site
- Users can register in either Webflow or WordPress
- Sync almost immediately
- User account
- Username / ID
- First Name, Second Name, etc
- Sync when changes happen
No. Webflow’s User Accounts are pretty much a “closed box” in that it has specific rules. Two in particular-
- all user accounts are defined by an email address which cannot be changed, even by the user
- only the user themselves can set or reset the password
This makes any kind of complete sync impossible.
You might look into Memberstack instead, it has much more maturely-developed system around membership data access. You might also consider Wized, especially if your WP-based system has the ability to integrate.
Then you’d only have one user database, no syncing required.
