After successfully completing the Registration form, the user is sent to a new page that says
Registration Complete! Please Login
When the Login in Link is pressed the user is sent back to the Registration page and not to a login area.
There seems to be a link missing somewhere??
What did I do wrong? Please help.December 8, 2011 at 12:26 pm #39422PeterMember
Some quick things you should check….
Double check your eMember settings and make sure that the “Login Page (Mandatory)” has got the correct URL to your login page.
If so, then check that you have entered the correct shortcode in the login page, ie, it should be [wp_eMember_login]December 8, 2011 at 5:16 pm #39423
I do not have a Login page but have the WP eMember Login Widgit in the Primary Widgit Area.
My Home page URL is entered into the “Login Page (Mandatory)”
On all of the pages that use the primary sidebar a Login Menu is present in the Primary Side bar area. If the person has previously registered, when the Username and Password are entered correctly and the Login button in this widgit is pressed , the Login menu disappers and is replace by text menu indicating that the person is logged in. If the person then Logs Out the text disappears and is again replaced by the Login Menu.
If they have not registered or have entered incorrect information they stay on same page and red text appeares at the bottom of the menu say Wrong Username or Password. This appears to be working correctly.
I have also created a Free Membership Level. When a new User pushes the Join Now button the are directed to the Membership page and then given the option to choose a membership level. If they choose the free membership they are then redirected to the registration page. After filling out the registration form they are redirected to a page that says
Registration Complete! Please Login
When the Login link is pressed the User is sent back to the Registration page and not my Home Page.
If they then navigate to the any page that has the primary widgit area present and they Login in the primary widgit area the Login menu has dissappears and is replaced by text menu indicating that the person is logged in. If I look in the members list they have been entered as a new member at the correct Membership level. This seems to me to indicate that the person is registering.
If the User tries to access the free content without logging in they are redirected to page that says
Please Login to view this Content.(Not a member? Join Today!)
When this login button is pushed a drop down menu appares and they are presented with the login form with a sign in button on the bottom. If they sign in correctly they are redirected to my home page with the text menu present indicating that they are logged in. If they input incorrect information the drop down menu dissappears and they stay on the same page. No message appears indicating that they have made a mistake in the Username or Password. I am not sure if this is the right behavior or not.
I’m not sure what is going on.
I did change the appearance of the Login Button and the Sign-in button, maybe I broke something.
Thank you for your assistance.December 9, 2011 at 7:54 am #39424adminKeymaster
Since you did some customization we need to make sure that the issues are not arising from some custom coding change in the plugin. Do the following first and test the behavior of the login:
If everything works good then start to apply your custom change but add one small change at a time so you know which bit of change is wrong.December 14, 2011 at 12:51 am #39425
I reinstalled the plugin and added the changes one by one and found the problem
