Not redirecting to wp-login when username or password is incorrect (5 posts)

    I've been using for a few days this great plugin, and I'm very satisfied with it.

    I do have a small request (not an issue report, but more of an enhancement request):
    When a user is viewing an event and is currently not logged, he has 2 options: register to the event (which will create an account if not yet done), or login to then register to the event.

    On the first case, when he's trying to register with an email that is already in the database, it uses some ajax magic to display the error directly in the page, and that's great.

    On the second case, if he tries to login with an incorrect username or password, he will be redirected to WP login, which is not great because many people are trying to not expose this to users.

    Would it be possible to do the same kind of process - display the error in the page? That would be awesome!!

    so is the enhancement that the login works better i.e. doesn't redirect to the wp-admin login on fail? could be done....

    Hi, thanks for your quick answer - yes, it would be great that the plugin would not redirect to wp-admin when the user supplied a wrong username or password, but would display an error on page, just as it does when the user tries to register for an event using an email address which is already linked to an existing user.

    eventually i'll probably incorporate it with my login with ajax plugin that'd do just that :)

    That could be a good idea ;)
    And btw, you have another occurrence of link to the WP dashboard login in /templates/templates/my-bookings.php
