    Hi guys,

    I’ve created a custom shortcode for a standard login form to embed on a page. However, it does not display at all unless a user is already logged in. I narrowed it down to an issue with Enfold after changing theme to Twenty Thirteen and finding no hiccups.

    Troubleshooting steps are below:

    • Inserted code for wp_login_form() directly into a custom page template (no shortcode).
    • Disabled all plugins one-by-one via the WordPress interface as well as manually renamed the WordPress’ plugin folder in an attempt to disassociate it.
    • Stripped code to wp_login_form( array( ‘echo’ => false ) ); in an attempt to make it as simple as possible and test insertion.

    The functions.php code is as follows:

    add_shortcode( ‘my_login_form’, ‘my_login_form_shortcode’ );

    function my_login_form_shortcode() {

    $args = array(
    ‘redirect’ => admin_url(),
    ‘form_id’ => ‘loginform’,
    ‘label_username’ => __( ‘Username’ ),
    ‘label_password’ => __( ‘Password’ ),
    ‘label_remember’ => __( ‘Remember Me’ ),
    ‘label_log_in’ => __( ‘Log In’ ),
    ‘remember’ => true
    );

    $attr = shortcode_atts( $defaults, $attr );

    $attr['echo'] = false;

    wp_login_form();
    }

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!

    I got it working after lots of confusion! I realised that I was using a custom page template when I didn’t really need one. With just a default page template the shortcode works, allowing a login form to appear on any random page despite whether the user is authenticated or not.

    This could still be considered a bug seeing as the custom shortcode wouldn’t appear for unauthenticated users on a page with a custom template applied via an Enfold Child Theme, but it’s no longer an issue for me!

    Thanks anyway guys. Feel free to close the thread.
