Doc not easy to get
By , for WP 4.2.4

Tested the plugin and wanted to have some details on how to manage new members and I discovered I needed register to their site to get access to the documentation. I don't like this...

So close and yet so far…! logout not included, etc, etc
By , for WP 4.2.3

We installed this plugin with high hopes to solve very simple needs— to permit users to sign up at the subscriber level to be able to see a single protected page.
The problem is that the developers have never fully debugged the plugin and don't make the ability to logout integral to their forms. We found that even when a logout link was manually added (per instructions in their own forum) the specified redirect would occur but the actual function of logging out never occurs. Be advised that this can wreck havoc on the ability of Admins and Editors to login. I'm sorry, but the ability to logout can't be considered optional!

There is no restriction to weak passwords. The verifications for new users are buggy. The Admin approval doesn't seem to be set up, and the email approval leads to logins being tangled in a loop of math problems. The only workable option appears to be immediate access to login. When all of this is combined with the absence of logout I think this adds up to a large security risk.

There is also an intermittent bug with the password validator which causes it to declare matching passwords to be mismatched, thus effectively blocking signups.

The plugin support is responsive, but no help with this.

Impossible to change login_redirect with filter when the plugin is activated
By , for WP 4.0.1

I tried to handle the redirect process after user logged in with

function custom_login_redirect($redirect_to, $request, $user)
add_filter('login_redirect', 'custom_login_redirect', 1000, 3);

But it not works until Pie Register plugin is activated. After deactivation all works correctly.
Also I looked into the code of this plugin...It written in ugly way and has many commented code .

Custom styled menu link, php warnings, inconsistent design
By , for WP 4.0

The link this plugin adds to the admin menu is flat white with orange text. The default admin bar is black with gray text. It's just idiotic, why would they not only customize their own link but also go with an exact OPPOSITE color scheme?

The options page is not even white. It actually does try to match WordPress. It makes their menu design choice meaningless and random. It's as if the admin menu was styled by someone else. And why stop there? They have a custom menu in the top right corner of the form builder page which is blue/black with gradients. GRADIENTS. It's awful.

Also, tons of errors and warnings are generated when you have wp_debug on. Nothing serious, but it shows the developer doesn't care that their code is garbage.

As far as functionality, it seems like the plugin works well enough. But holy crap, clean up your code and design. It's not difficult.

Stay OUT
By , for WP 4.0

I installed the Plugin and configured it. After i saved the changes i want to see the form of the plugin in the frontend. Nothing changed. Now i try to get back to the backend and i get an error message. "you are not allowed and have not the rights to see this site". Come on - whats this. After rename over FTP i could back to the backend and send this plugin to hell.


Ich hab das Plugin installiert und konfiguriert. Nachdem ich die Änderungen gespeichert habe und sehen wollte wie es im "Frontend" aussieht, sah ich nix - keine Ändeungen. Also zurück ins "Backend". Doch nun kahm eine Fehlermeldung. ""Sie haben nicht die nötigen Rechte um diese Seite zu sehen oder darauf zuzugreifen" Was soll das bitte. Also rauf auf den FTP - Plugin umbenannt und zurück ins "Backend".
*Wordpress erkennt umbenannte Plugins und deaktiviert diese umgehend* So also Plugin gelöscht und alles läuft wieder.

Wer also mal Langweile hat, kann dieses Plugin gerne installieren und sich rumärgern.

The HTML and UI is completely inconsistent and difficult to maintain, and the backend is bloated. What's up with the background color on the menu item? I would not recommend its use to anyone.

Installed, Uninstalled immediately.

Firstly, PIE-Register left an awful taste in my mouth in that it added a custom top level menu item that used its own CSS style - standing out from the rest of the sleek Dashboard. Strike one.

The plugin also added four pages to my site without a notification. Strike two.

The plugin added a table in my database, which didn't remove on its own - not sure what else it added, but strike three.

Very, very disappointed.

confirmation link does not work
By ,

i used the registration form of pie register to register a new user. he gets a mail with a confirmation link. but without clicking it, he is able to login immediatly. conclusion = completely useless plugin.
also i noticed the new user was directly inserted in wp_user table. expected to see him in a temporary table until he confirms membership with the link…
