WP-Members
[resolved] Built-in fields missing (6 posts)

    I am trying to configure WP_Members on a site, but the built-in fields are missing under the fields tab. I checked the wp_options table and found the record for 'wpmembers_fields.' Serialized data is present, as expected, but I am not seeing anything list in the dashboard. Can you give me some idea of what might be going on?

    I would suggest deleting the plugin using the delete process in the WP plugins panel (which will remove all the db entries) then re-install.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I tried your suggestion, but the problem remains. I am looking under the Settings/Fields Tab for the plugin. I want to setup the registration form for the site, but no fields are available. Currently, the registration form asks for a username only. Am I missing a step somewhere in the form setup process?

    Did you delete the plugin via the plugin admin panel, or did you just delete the files directly?

    The difference is that the first way deletes the files and the database entries so that a clean install can be completed while the latter only deletes the files.

    I would delete again and make sure that you do not have a database entry for wpmembers_settings and wpmembers_fields. If wpmembers_settings is there, it needs to be deleted as the install process will not install the wpmembers_fields otherwise.

    If this is not the case, you can force the plugin to load all of its defaults by changing the value of $chk_force in the install file. At the beginning of wpmem_do_install in wp-members-install.php, change this line:

    $chk_force = false;

    to this:

    $chk_force = true;

    Then you can deactivate and reactivate the plugin to force the default db entries to be loaded.

    Hello Chad,
    i tried to delete and reactivate the plugin that way you wrote, and change the line $chk_force, but nothing happened. I'd like to see the fields on the "WP-Members Option" tab. Would you have a good idea to solve this problem? (I tried other plugins, but it seems yours would be the best for our site.)
    Thanks, Agnes

    I'll need some more clarity. What where you trying to accomplish with this? What didn't happen that you wanted to happen?

    I'd like to see the fields on the "WP-Members Option" tab. Would you have a good idea to solve this problem?

    That's actually not a problem - the plugin shows the fields on the fields tab, not the options tab.
