How to Change Ultimate Member Profile Layout

If you are using UM Theme, you will have extra Ultimate member Profile layouts. Here are the screenshots of how these profile layouts look:

Creating custom profile template

Copy the file profile.php from the plugin's directory to the child theme directory and change its name:

  • Original file: /wp-content/plugins/ultimate-member/templates/profile.php
  • Copied file: /wp-content/themes/um-theme-child/ultimate-member/templates/profile-2.php

Open new file and paste a comment with the template name to the first line, see example:

<?php /* Template: Profile 2 */
if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit; ?>

Change the template file and save it.
