Bugs & Totally screws your site if you disable it (1 post)

    Tried out TML and liked a lot of it but there were a few bugs I couldn't sort out (navigation issues because it generated second login, register, and profile pages to what I already had, and clicking "forgot password" link could generate an error message).

    When trying to debug the issue I disabled TML to see how things would work without it - and that's when the shit hit the fan.

    I was logged out of my website and any attempt to log back in I got a "too many redirects" error loop on Chrome, and a 404 on IE. It didn't matter whether I tried logging in through the front end menu button, or the /login page, or /wp-admin, or social login.

    I have tried all the potential "fixes" I've found online:
    - cleared cache & cookies
    - disable all plugins (if I do that I can’t even get to a login page)
    - deactivate theme (got a complete blank page)
    - new login file
    - site redirecting fixes suggested on wordpress codex > edit functions.php, edit wp-login.php file, edit wp.config.php file
    - delete .htaccess file
    - delete TML plugin folder
    - delete all pages tml created
    - use phpmyadmin to find and (carefully) remove all options and metadata containing ‘%tml%’ or ‘%theme_my_login%’
    - reset permalinks

    The problem still exists - access to my website completely ruined by this plugin.

    The one and only break-through I've had is that via Internet Explorer (doesn't work on Chrome) I can now login to the front end via the social login plugin (not via any other method), and once logged in I can then access the back-end via url address.

    But my website is a membership site so this minor solve still isn't solving my problems in terms of making logging in easy for them all.
