bbPress Log In Widget is Redirecting When Clicking "Log In"?

    Hi, I have the bbpress Login Widget on my homepage and throughout site — however, I noticed that if i click the “Log In” button with a wrong password, or if i leave it blank – that it redirects me to the generic wp-login.php wordpress page.

    Is there a way to keep the user on the same page the widget is on, so that clicking “Log In” will not redirect a user…I would ideally prefer everything to stay within the widget…if a user types the wrong password, then it would alert them on the widget…or if the “Log In” is pressed with a blank username/password then rather nothing happen, than to redirect to the basic wordpress login page.

    Hopefully, this makes sense….Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That’s the way it works at the moment – it annoys me as well

    You could use the plugin

    WP Modal Login

    This has a modal (popup) login that is happy for you to get it wrong.

    It has a widget that you can use. it’s not a pretty in the widebar as the bbpress one, but smarter when it’s launched.

    I have just started using this linked to a menu item, will be documenting how to do the latter when I get a moment.

    @robin-w thank you for the response & suggestion…hopefully, bbpress will incorporate some of these things sometime soon.
