Login Widget prompts users to WordPress Admin Login? Please Help

    Hi

    Ive setup the forum and have the register link in the widget setup properly. My test profile was able to register and receive an activation email. But when/if I log out and try to sign back in using the BBPress Login Widget, after I click “login” it takes me to the wordpress login?

    Is this how the login is supposed to work? Is there a way to login using the widget that doesnt prompt them to login with wordpress? Why after clicking on “login” does it take the user to another login screen and just log them in on that same page?

    I dont feel secure if users can maybe access the backend to the site, but it looks like this is how this site works as well?

    Ive installed a BBPress plugin called BBPress – No Admin does this solve my fear of them being able to access the backend?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Im running WordPress 3.6.1 with BBPress 2.4.1 and BuddyPress 1.8.1

    the bbpress login widget should just log them in, you shouldn’t get other login screens – what your url?

    Hi thank you so much for replying but what URL are you asking of and how do I find it? Sorry I do not know much about this.

    correction to the above – forgot that like you I didn’t like the default login form.

    Install bbpress WP tweaks – it has a login that appears in the sidebar, so takes away the WP login. looks much better

    eg

    http://www.gospbc.co.uk/forums

    Also gives you a bbpress sidebar which you can use with your forum pages and other goodies

    Thank you so much for that it does look much better! It still though brings me to a wordpress login screen when I click on login?

    Do my default discussion settings have anything to do with it?

    it should keep you on the page where you have placed it.

    so back to earlier question – what is your url?

    A url is the unique resource locator otherwise known as your website address eg http://www.gospbc.co.uk

    Post it here, and I can have a look at your site as a user to see what you’re describing

    If you’ve installed bbpress WP tweaks plugin (in addition to the bbpress plugin) then there are two login widgets.

    the one you want is called “bbpress login widget” rather than the “bbpress login links widget” that you have used.

    ok I switched it back and entered the Register URL and Lost Password URL. The register URL works great but my Lost Password gives me a 404 error.

    My login is still bringing me to a WordPress Login screen though. : (

    had a look

    You login works fine. If you fail then you will be taken to the default wordpress login page. If you want to change this page see

    For the lost password, try resetting your permalinks dashboard>settings>permalinks and just click save.

    or change the lost password url to http://modbunker.com/lost-password/ – that seems to work

    Thank you so much Robin for taking the time to help. The lost password link worked!

    Although I do not really know about all that Page Template and CSS stuff, so I would be aerie to mess with that. I basically just want to make the login page the page under http://modbunker.com/forums/ so it doesnt take them to that WordPress page. It seems even if their login is correct it still directs them to the wordpress page to login again and then directs them to http://modbunker.com/forums/ which I want in the first place. Id just hate for my users to have to login twice basically, and have them be directed to a WordPress login which might confuse them.

    But if it works it works may just have to stick it out and see. Thank you again

    I’ve just registered with you, and logged on with no problems via the forum widget. Went straight back to the forum page as it should do. Didn’t see a wp-login page at all.
