This stopped working today. Changes I’ve made:

Enabled SSL and modified htaccess to preped http(s)://www. To all requests. Im not certain any of that’s related. What should I check. I went back in to settings and reset the all events require login option but no luck.

Hi emoria,

Did you have the the WP Users Integration ( addon installed and now deactivated it?

Sorry I fixed this by adding a non standard WP login/registration URL’s. to use https vs http. No sure why that fixed it cause it should of just redirected but it did in fact fix it.

Hello again,

Broke again. For some reason all requests to any admin pages are being rewritten and I think it’s throwing off this plugin. Can you explain why I have to specify the URL or the registration and login pages? No matter what combination I try it just won’t work. This is a feature I really need to have working. If its possible to have someone take a look that would greatly be appreciated. This is , at the moment the last major functionality issue I’m having and hope to overcome it so I can pump out the content. Thanks in advance.

Ok I think you were on to something. The plugin says active but when I click on edit the editor says some files are inactive and other are active??

Active and Inactive occur to all plugins edited in WordPress. My understanding of it is that if an active file is edited and something goes wrong, the site is likely to crash as the file is in use. If its inactive and the code is edited incorrectly the site may not crash (at that point).

Any suggestions as to where i can search for clues to the problem? I tried removing and reinstalling the WP members plugin and have the same results. The following are the status of each file within the edit plugin page.

espresso-members/espresso-members.php (active)
espresso-members/user_vars.php (inactive)
espresso-members/readme.txt (inactive)
espresso-members/member_functions.php (inactive)
espresso-members/my_events_page.php (inactive)
espresso-members/index.html (inactive)
espresso-members/styles/style.css (inactive)
espresso-members/user_settings_page.php (inactive)

And the actual plugin status on the plugin page is active

Yeah so the above looks normal after looking at other plugins. So What can I check to see why users that are not logged in are not being redirected to register for an account? They go directly to the event registration page.

I rigged it so s2member makes the user register to get to registration pages but I’m not sure this is ideal just yet. I’d still like to figure out why the EE members plugin is having trouble.

Hello Emoria,

EE isn’t designed to control registered and unregistered users access, membership plugins are there for that. Therefore you are on the right track with resolving the issue via S2Member, which is probably the easiest way to redirect a user somewhere else.

Cool. Seems to be working well so far. Thanks for the response.
