I just installed the Ultimate Member plugin. The frontend login shortcode that comes with that plugin works as expected, so not sure what this issue is with the bbPress Login Widget, but something is certainly not right.
I totally get that many people should be complaining if it were obviously broken, but especially after testing a clean WP core and bbPress install it seems that this isn’t likely to be an edge case.
Again, let me know if you have any specific questions that I can help with to debug.
The plugin mentioned that I disabled is called “User Registration” but that’s kind of irrelevant; I just did another fresh WP install with only the 2020 theme and the only plugin being bbPress and have the exact same issue. Here’s a video demo: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IFXKlXQuWFg1Sjc80vyJesN08-JVBZCR/view
Let me know if you have questions. Thanks!
The bbPress Login Widget, upon submitting username/password simply redirects to /wp-login.php where the user has to again submit the username/password. It simply doesn’t log the user in at all. I have tested this with a fresh WP install with the default theme and only bbPress running. See video demo here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17gdtsNw401_ZYt2PcFKtyrO5rA49HGxg/view
Let me know if you have any questions – happy to provide any info to debug.
OP: Let us know if this is this same issue you are having or if this is a different issue.
