Is there a wordpress plugin that can generate new pages?

So I'm looking for a plugin that can generate pages based off a template that I can make, and has custom fields filled in via a form that the front end user can fill out. An example of what I mean is like on gumroad.com, where you can make your own shop page after filling out things like your shop name etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You could install a plugin like Custom Post Types and then install Ninja Forms with this Extenstion, allowing users to create posts, pages, or custom post types. I haven't explored this extension but I'm sure it will be able to manage your requirements.

Advanced Custom Fields will help you with the custom fields, but you'll be familiar with this from the WordPress courses

Hi Nathan, Do you know of any other plugins that are similar to the ninja forms + extension? I'm hoping to find something that's free.
