Login URL – small error-message after migration
I’m busy with a community website for students (only logged in has access to website). Because of (hopefully) a better performance, I am testing right now another provider. After successfully migrate the website, the only thing is that you get an error-message on the login page.
When users load globehomeschool.nl, they first see the login-page. It looks like the browser automatically try to log in, without fill in any data. This result in an error-message that users have to fill in correct data to access the website, although they haven’t fill in anything. (See globehomeschool.nl) Before the migration, there was no such error-message.
The solution lies somewhere within BuddyPress (Buddyboss platform plugin build on BuddyPress). When I deactivate, the problem is gone.
So, I hope anyone here maybe knows what the problem might be? Is it possible to set your own login URL? I’m struggling for many many hours…..
Extra info: I tried the very simple plugin WPS Hide Login.
This works, but how can I change the buddypress main login URL? So that the domain name is pointing to the login adress. Now it is:
When there’s no solution for the error-message, maybe I can use a custom login-url? But how?
Hope there’s anyone out there with more knowledge than I have. 😉
@wiq there is an inbuilt option in BB to restrict the complete site for logged in users only.
Go to plugin options >> setting >> privacy option and disable it.
@vabvarun – Thanks for your suggestion, but I need that option because only logged-in users has access to the website.
However, you gave me an idea :-)….I solved the issue using 2 lightweight plugins: WPS Hide Login to choose my own login-url (which is better) and Restricted Site Access to replace the BuddyPress funtion and choose a custom redirect login-url. Also, the login-page is loading a little faster with these plugins.
Problem solved. But it would be great when BuddyPress would offer those small features as well.
@wiq & @vapvarun I know this thread is more than 2 years old, but I’m facing the same issue and a google search lead me here. I applied the above fix with the 2 plugins: WPS Hide Login and Restricted Site Access, which got rid of the error message, but created a whole new issue. Restricted Site Access now prevent my site from being indexed by search engines. No bueno. Has anyone else faced and resolve this issue?
