Hello--so I have been playing with this for an hour and can't figure it out. Basically, I have a "members only" WordPress site that requires logging in, or registering (and then logging in) to see the home page.
In wp-login.php, there is a block of code you can change to set the default action:
// // Main // $action = isset($_REQUEST['action']) ? $_REQUEST['action'] : 'login'; $errors = new WP_Error();
Changing login to register achieves what I want--when the login page comes up, it automatically pulls up the register form instead of the login form. However, when you then navigate to login (say you were a user who clicked the Login link), it seems that WordPress now requires the register form to be filled out in order to log in. I assume this is because of changing the above action to login, but there has to be a way to have the register form come up first, but to still have the login form work.
Anyone run into this?
