[resolved] login widget does not show a register button (3 posts)

    I've used TML on my site for a year and I love it. So my friend asked me to make her a site and of course I want to use TML. Her site is almost identical to mine (to make it easy on me), same theme, same plugins, same settings. Actually, she has a few less plugins because I just started it.

    Anyway, I installed TML, activated it, made a page with the short code and added the sidebar widget and checked all the options. But when I chose to show the LOGIN in the sidebar as the default option, it doesn't have a REGISTER button. It does have the LOST PASSWORD button, though.

    So I changed it to default to REGISTER. Then both LOGIN and LOST PASSWORD do show up. The only problem is that if I click on LOGIN, it goes to the LOGIN screen which doesn't show a REGISTER option.

    This is a problem if the person accidentally clicked on LOGIN when they really wanted to REGISTER. Even though they can get back to the REGISTER by hitting "back" in their browser, it could confuse some people. I'd like to fix this if at all possible.

    I've tried deactivating, removing and reinstalling the TML, but it didn't help.

    I fixed it. You answered someone else right here:

    You said, "Be sure that the option "Anyone can register" is checked in the General WordPress settings."

    So, thank you. problem solved.

    oh, a suggestion.
    to make it easier on dummy's like me, maybe change it so that if the "anyone can register" option is NOT checked then the Registration box announces that Registration is currently closed.
