[Solved] Logging in
Hello all -
I've been very happy setting up the forum, even though I am not a technical person and I've had great support in this forum.
I just set up the login form (removed buddypress) and now people can not log in at all or register. When they log in it brings them to the home page.
Also when I get a new person the member becomes a subscriber on my wordpress blog, is that normal or do I have to modify something?
My blog page is 2ndlifeclub.com/community
Chris...thank you! I did both of those and it still takes me to the home screen when I hit log in...
Hi @2ndlifeclub-com . I just went to your website, and your login and logout Menu links on your Forum Bar seem to not have the corresponding hooks to the log in and logout pages.
Check your Menu again by going to WP Dashboard > Appearance > Menus > Select a menu to edit > (wpForo Menu)
and then under Menu Structure
Look at your Log In URL, it should be:
Look at your Log Out URL, it should be:
Here's a screenshot of my settings.
Also, you really should have some type of protection on your website, like a ReCaptcha, as I have suggested in your first post here. Your website is trying to load cookies on my browser. I don't know if you are aware of that, so I am attaching another screenshot here. I suggest you minimize plugins for now, until you are more familiar with what these can do on your website, and website visitors. 🙂
Here's a screenshot of my WordPress General Setting - that will help make sure all the links within a WordPress site lead to HTTPs and not just HTTP.
Hi @2ndlifeclub-com - I also just noticed this, you still have two "logins" (the one on the top right corner of your website, as in the screenshot I took of your website) and the Forum Login (on the Forum Menu Bar).
You can use just one login link because they go to the same WP Dashboard. Another reason why this might be happening is one is overriding the other.
If you have enabled to just use the WPForo Login Form, then all should work out. Good luck and God bless you. 🙂
What you should do is find someone to help you with your Wordpress in general. At least for the start of your site.
Before abandoning your project as you say ...
The login menu is wrong. It's set your home page.But the real login page is this:
Just navigate to Dashboard > Appearance > Menus admin page, select the wpForo Navigation in Dropdown, then check the Login Menu, it should look like this:
