Send new password to a new database after password change/reset
By , for WP 4.3

Thank you for the excellent plugin!

I have two scripts working together, I need to keep user information synchronized. I have no issues for the username. For the password, I have tried 2 hooks, 'password_reset' and 'check_passwords', but it is not accomplishing:

add_action( 'password_reset', 'change_password_in_other_script', 10, 2 );
add_action( 'check_passwords', 'change_password_in_other_script', 10, 2 );
function change_password_in_other_script( $user, $new_pass ) {

	global $addShareDB;
	$mydb = new wpdb( $addShareDB['dbuser'], $addShareDB['dbpass'], $addShareDB['dbname'], $addShareDB['dbhost'] );

	$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    $current_username = $current_user->user_login;

	$table           = 'enk_account_users';
	$new_password    = md5( $_POST[ 'pwd' ] );
	$query = "UPDATE " . $table . " SET password = '" . $new_password . "' WHERE username = '" . $current_username . "'";
	$mydb->get_results( $query );

Is there any other hook in wp members or wordpress I can use? Or how can I solve this?

Thank you!!!!

Good, but the latest update has messed things up significantly
By , for WP 4.2.4

This plugin is excellent in its basic format - it registers users, allows password resets and logging in all at the front end without the need for the WP interface. In short, it provides a professional approach to user logging.

However, since the latest update, some pages have been blocked (even though they haven't been set to be blocked). Additionally, the reCaptcha v2 does not work in the registration screen, despite having the correct API keys from the new reCaptcha system to manage it (it specifically states in the admin area that you need these for it to show). The Really Simple Captcha works so I have had to use that until this is resolved, though it is not consistent with the new reCaptcha used elsewhere in the site.

It's disappointing that fundamentally there are issues with some of the straightforward functionality the plugin offers, and is slightly frustrating to consider rolling the system back to a previous version.

On the whole, I do like the plugin and what it offers, but for me to even consider premium bolt-ons/versions, the plugin has to work in it's basic format first. I think the developer needs to test it more, and once issues are resolved it's very worthy of 5 stars.

Five stars but....
By , for WP 4.2.4

I was really happy with the plugin when i set up a members only area. I don't know why though it has stopped blocking pages. It is set up properly, i even reinstalled the plugin. Pages are blocked but i can access them from any computer without being a registered user. I still give 5 stars but i hope this resolves. dont have the funds to pay for the pro version.

Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

Does what it says. Super simpler. Easy to customize. Does page restrict, user register on the front end, and add custom field to user register (threefold good plugin)

3.0 Update is a MESS
By , for WP 4.0

The 3.0 Update completely kills our entire site. Even after trying to test it, we can't get it work. Upgrade paths should be much easier than this.

Great support!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I am truly impressed by the support author of this plugin provides to everyone. I am a not paying customer. I have reported an issue and within 3 hours there has been a release with solution. All support forum threads that were in unresolved state became resolved as well. Everything works like a clockwork.

No support without payment
By ,

The support politics of this plugIn is awesome. Completely left alone if one isn’t willing zp pay (how much by the way?) Never saw any forum to pay for. Great.

The Best Plugin I never seen before
By , for WP 2.9.1

I was really surprised by this plugin because it have so many options and it's for free.... Thanks a lot Chad Butler

Too many issues
By , for WP 4.2.2

I am a paying customer of Rocket Geek. Initially I enjoyed the plugin until dozens of users on my site were locked out, had lots of login issues. Chad fixed some of them. The support is good but the plugin is definitely below average, I recommend going with Paid Membersips Pro (a free plugin) which works very smoothly. I'm glad I switched.
