[resolved] Field order on wp-login.php? (2 posts)

    Hello - I've checked the "first name" and "last name" fields to display as required, and I've also dragged/dropped the order on the fields tab of wp-members to be: First Name, Last Name, Email.

    However, when I access the standard wp-login.php page and then hit the "register" link to display the standard WordPress registration page (i.e. http://<my site>/wp-login.php?action=register), then:

    1. The field order is not honored: Username & Email still display first, followed by First Name Last Name.
    2. The labels on First/Last Name fields do not show the asterisk to indicate they are required fields.

    However, if I create my own Registration page with the wp-members shortcode on it, then the field ordering and required asterisk appear as expected.

    Is there a way to make the standard WordPress registration page honor the field ordering (and required) settings from wp-members?

    Thanks in advance.

    On #1 - unfortunately, no, you can't reorder the Username and Email fields - WP puts them there and everything else is added after. (I will look into whether there is a potential way to manipulate that, but at this time I don't think there is.)

    For #2, I can add that. It probably will have to wait until 2.9.1 but I'll add it to the project list.

    The standard WP registration wasn't supported in the plugin until recently, and so there is currently limited support of features in that area. This is primarily because that just wasn't the intended flow of the plugin and most users wanted to keep things away from the WP backend anyway. But I added it because there was enough user interest in it, so that's why I began working it in.
