Support » Plugin: ZM Ajax Login & Register » No Choice For User Names – No Email Address!

  • I tested the Registration page by clicking on the Facebook link. it Registers but then it assigns some random long string of numbers for my username. And then on my wp under Users it doesn’t even show their email address!

    So are you saying that when someone registers with Facebook that it will not give them a username or provide to me their email address?

    Once they login, they then have access to a WordPress Dashboard and Profile page page with the black wordpress bar at the top. It shows Activity, WordPress News and Yoast SEO Posts Overview. I don’t mind if they see their profile but they don’t need to see WordPress News and Activity.

    Hi Texoma,

    In order to have the user register without having to ask them for a username their Facebook ID is used, which is the number you are seeing. I’ve entertained the idea of having user names derived via first name, and last name, etc. but you still have random numbers at some point.

    It would work with a new setting, like the following:

    Determine how to derive user names
    Option 1: [firstname]_[lastname]_[random number]
    Option 2: [first initial]_[lastname]_[random number]
    Option 3: prompt the user to make one up

    If you have any ideas I’m open.

    Sigh, so this issue was fixed for some users. It appears to be an ongoing issue with the FB API, (and possibly based on where you are, as this seems to happen when your outside of the US) I have more info on this GitHub issue:

    You can try the actions steps in that link. If those do not work, I’ll revisit the issue.
