Support » Plugin: Restrict Usernames Emails Characters » New Version Kills Buddypress Login Widget

  • Resolved JJNW


    Hello. Plugin version I’m using is 2.7.3

    I upgraded and now my Buddypress Login Widget would take users to website/members/ instead of website/members/username

    I battled this for hours trying to figure out what was wrong with server – if account is created with any version higher than 2.7.3 the user has no access to their profile account.

    Any suggestions would be sincerely appreciated.

    I’m only using the field “names not allowed” would like to use the field “name can not contain”….but scared to LOL

    Chased for hours, dumb database multiple times trying to find root cause, lost some users šŸ™

    Thanks in advance.

    sorry i don’t understand your question.
    first what version are you using?
    secondly can you explain your question by images or video?

    Hello. Plugin version Iā€™m using is 2.7.3

    I upgraded to the current version 2.8.2

    BuddyPress has a login widget.

    When user creates account, the login widget (with profile and link to profile url) doesn’t work.

    Instead of going to user profile url (site/members/username), it just goes to members directory (site/members).

    Though I absolutely love the plugin’s potential – it doesn’t work with BP login widget, which is necessary to get users to their profile.

    And I am forced to remove your plugin, because it’s not compatible with Auto Activate, WP Ban Registration Form and Username Availability Checker.

    I tested it (Version 2.8.2) on localhost (local server) and it works, as you see on this image:

    Ah yes, I forgot to mention those details – on localhost I had no problems, and admin had no problems on live server, just live server new members.

    Try live server, create new member, and see what I’m talking about….if you dare Ahahaha

    But yeah, live server, new member, doesn’t affect the admin.

    And when I say create, I mean actual registration, old school, no admin creation šŸ˜‰

    Thank you for this notification.
    It’s true there is a problem in “nacename”, for the moment add this line at the end of this file (wp-content\themes\yourCurrentTheme\functions.php):

    add_filter( 'benrueeg_turn_off_filter_user_nicename', function() {return '-1';});

    I will fix this problem in the next plugin update, so don’t forget to delete this code after the update.

    The issue has been fixed, update the plugin.
