Support » Plugin: Tabbed Login Widget » Login widget not working on site migrated to WPengine

  • Resolved adambundy


    I’ve recently migrated a site using this plugin for front-end login to WPengine hosting. On submission of the login form, I am directed to /wp-login.php where I see white screen – Chrome shows a ‘No data received’ error.

    @vivek, have you or any users experienced this on WPengine? I wonder if they’re requiring something special be passed to the login form.

  • Solved this one and thought I’d post the solution in hopes it will help someone else. WPEngine has created a requirement it seems, for security reasons, that all hits to wp-login.php (like the login and forgot password forms in this plugin) have a parameter of wpe-login equalling the install name be attached. So, I had to modify the plugin’s tabbed-login.php file as such:

    <form method="post" action="<?php bloginfo('url') ?>/wp-login.php" class="wp-user-form">


    <form method="post" action="<?php bloginfo('url') ?>/wp-login.php?wpe-login=[myinstallname]" class="wp-user-form">

    Replace [myinstallname] with your particular install’s name. This must also be added to the other form’s action URLs.

    Thanks for this!

    I am now closing this 6 month old topic as it references an older version of WordPress.
