WP Email Login
[resolved] Causes issues in "Lost your Password" process (3 posts)

    The plugin causes issues when going through the "Lost your Password" process. Specifically, here's how to arrive at the error:

    1. Go to /wp-admin
    2. Click "Forgot your password?" link
    3. Enter email address, submit
    4. Red error message reads, "ERROR: The password field is empty." implying the plugin is trying to log you in using blank username/password fields. This error also occurs when clicking the confirmation link sent in the email.

    I cannot duplicate this on WP 3.0.5.

    Make sure you're not using any other login-type plugins.

    Through further troubleshooting I was able to determine that this was being caused by a user account in the database with no email address set even though it's required. I think this stemmed from a previous data import.

    Anyway, just a heads up - the get_user_by_email function was always returning this user row because it was being called with blank data which was causing login errors.
