Support » Plugin: WP-Members Membership Plugin » Password Not Working when user creates an account

  • Resolved TBCShane

    Hi there,
    When a user creates an account on our site, they fill out a password field using your plugin. When attempting to login with those credentials, the user’s password does not work.

    I can go in and set the user password in the Users panel and the login works after that, but the initial password doesn’t seem to be passing to the database.

    Can you assist please? Thanks!

    This issue has been resolved. Please note that this plugin does not play well with the default WordPress registration page (i.e. http://www.your-url.com/wp-login.php?action=register). Any passwords fed through that page while using this plugin will not make it to the database.

    Instead, I created a new page and dropped in the registration shortcode found at the developer’s site here. That code should look like this: [wpmem_form register]. Any registration going through your new registration page will feed through the plugin and provide the appropriate emails and calls to the database.

    Once completed, I redirected any traffic going to the default wordpress page with the 301 redirects plugin. This could have also been done via .htaccess.

    Cheers.

    It sounds like you’ve got things resolved at this point. But here are a couple of notes.

    Please note that this plugin does not play well with the default WordPress registration page

    That depends on what else is being done to the native WP registration. In a default setup, it would be just fine. And in situations where additional fields are added to the form elsehwere, it’s generally OK as well. It sounds like you have something in your registration form (external from WP-Members) that is adding a password field to the form, allowing users to create a password at registration? That would be what isn’t compatible with the plugin.

    WP provides a specific filter for setting the register page location: register_url:
