Follw up with my previous post

https://processwire.com/talk/topic/12782-regarding-multiple-templates-or-parents-for-users/

For default installation, api to create a new user is something like that

$u = new User();
$u->of(false);
$u->name = "adrian";
$u->email = "adrian@example.com";
$u->pass = "123456";
$u->addRole("registered");
$u->save();
$u->of(true);

With multiple template or parent , how to setup a user object to use which template and parent, before executing save() method ?

(Untested) It should be sufficient to assign the correct value for parent (the User class inherits from Page) and pass the correct template in the constructor.

$u = new User($templates->get('my-user-parent')); // pass the Template object
$u->parent = 222; // you can also pass a Page object or selector string here
// continue as usual...

Before I got your suggested answer,

I tested with

$u->template = "my-user-parent";

and it work.

I also tested with yours. it work too.

Im  trying to create an option to Add new users from the front end.

$u = $users->add('gonzo');
$u->pass = "BamBam!";
$u->addRole("superuser");
$u->save();

But there is a problem because the users is somehow created, and I can access all data using the API, but it's not displayed under /admin/access/users/> If I try to access the user Id from the processwire api adding to the url admin/access/users/edit/?id=92871 it says that the page is not existing. But If I call the ID by $users->get(92871) I have the full data.

Any suggestions?

That's strange. The code works fine here (3.0.132). Can you take a look into the pages table and compare the entry for id 92871 with a working user (parent_id, templates_id, status)?
