I'm using the most recent version of Mini Loops according to the plugin page, 1.1.1. There seems to be a conflict with it and custom login pages, specifically created with the free Theme My Login plugin. If you use the sidebar widget with Mini Loops, and you go to the WP Login page, instead of displaying the appropriate post title with an excerpt as I have set it up in the widget, it says Log In as the title, with no excerpt. Log In being the page title of the login page. I thought it might be due to me using the [title] shortcode, so I updated it to the new [ml_title], but still this conflict. I'm not sure which plugin has the problem, Mini Loops or Theme My Login.
Here's the code in my widget for Item Format, which is wrapped in an unordered list:
<li><span class="date">[ml_date format='F j, Y']</span><h3><a href="[ml_url]">[ml_title]</a></h3></li>
Any idea what could be the issue?
