I’ve followed along with the Client Portal video tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBltDUopo1U Very useful and exactly what I’m looking for. But I have one stumbling block. I don’t want to use – and more importantly I don’t want my clients to use – the native WP Login page which is very limiting and not inside my theme. Similarly, I want to avoid the custom login page packaged with s2Member for the same reason.
So I want to use WP’s login shortcode inside a page. I’m all set up and the client portal login functions exactly as planned when I use the native WordPress login page. But it does not function when I use my login shortcode (embedded in a page). So the tricky programmatic bit is my shortcode login programming is not picking up or not passing your important bit: %%current_user_login%%. So the native WP login successfully picks up and passes %%current_user_login%% but my login shortcode does not collect or does not pass %%current_user_login%%. I can’t figure out why not. Any suggestions for getting %%current_user_login%% to work with a login shortcode. My login shortcode function is included below.
If I can solve this last bit, I will be good to go and I will be so happy. And I am sure other users who want to create a Client Portal with a thematic login page will be pleased as well. Thank you.
