    Hi,
    After Registration (which is successful) the user gets an error message stating " Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid"

    Any ideas?

    your registration redirects to http://travel4teachers.co.uk/wp-login.php?action=register which is not managed by this plugin.

    Can you provide me with the link to the registration area that you have set this plugin to manage?

    - Thanks

    Hi Steve,

    I have been having similar problems, and so far have invested several hours trying to solve them. I think Jonathon is expecting you to have a specific place for registration, at which his registration form will appear. This can be achieved with the appropriate shortcodes on a new page.

    The problem is that the 'Register' link in the default login widget, which I have put in a sidebar, points instead to http://yoursite/wp-login.php?action=register

    It is not immediately apparent to a user of this plugin that this standard wordpress login/register page, which Jonathon's plugin points to by default, is not actually looked after by his plugin and is guaranteed to produce errors when his plugin is running. Logging out also points to this page, so the sequence of logging out and then clicking on the 'Register' link at the wordpress logout page will also cause problems.

    I suspect you are expected to redirect all 'Register' links to the registration page, and perhaps redirect 'Forgot password' links to yet another page, but there are rather unclear warnings in the plugin widget telling you not to automatically redirect URLS unless your widget is unique. What counts as unique, when the widget appears on every page? It is also not clear that the same URL will work for all the desired actions (login, register, forgot password, etc).

    I haven't yet found an easy way to have a login widget on my home page and have its 'Register' link point to the appropriate registration form, short of editing the plugin code directly. This will be my next approach and I will let you know if I have any success.

    Cheers,

    Craig.

    Any luck?
    I'm going to look into the plug in php, wanted to see if you had found anything yet?

    I found this by going to Plugins>Editor> and selected the plug in
    I edited the first php
    I looked for this:

    <p id="nav">
    getLoginUrl() ); ?>"><?php _e('Log in') ?>
    <?php if ( get_option( 'users_can_register' ) ) : ?>
    | getLoginUrl('register') ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Register' ); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </p>

    Changed to

    <p id="nav">
    <?php _e('Log in') ?>
    <?php if ( get_option( 'users_can_register' ) ) : ?>
    | getLoginUrl('register') ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Register' ); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </p>

    ALSO FOR THE FORGOT PASSWORD YOU CAN CREATE ANOTHER PAGE AND ADD THE FORM INTO IT. IN THE SETTINGS MAKE SURE THE DEFAULT FORM IS SET TO FORGOT PASSWORD:

    I FOUND THIS:

    getLoginUrl('lostpassword') ); ?>"
    class="login-lostpw-link" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Password Lost and Found' ) ?>">
    <?php _e( 'Lost your password?' ); ?>

    I CHANGED TO THIS:

    <a href="YOUR_CUSTOM_LINK_GOES_HERE"
    class="login-lostpw-link" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Password Lost and Found' ) ?>">
    <?php _e( 'Lost your password?' ); ?>
