Login error messages not showing

Angela's Avatar

When logging in via the My Account page, if any wrong data is submitted, the page just refreshes. An error message explaining what was incorrect does NOT show up. Isn't it supposed to explain to the user what went wrong? (i.e. incorrect password or invalid username?).

I thought at one point that it was showing error messages, so it seems to be that this might be a new bug since the upgrade to 1.4.9.

The lack of an error message is confusing the heck out of my customers and causing them to get themselves locked out of their accounts due to excessive login attempts.

I'm running Jigoshop on WPMU, as a side note.

    A URL would be helpful as well as your Jigoshop System Info

    This is not a bug with Jigoshop. All Jigoshop does is call the standard WordPress login. Rather this is a bug it seems with the Theme My Login plugin you are using.

    Thank you Chris. I just tried out the demo ( and I do see that the error messages are working just fine. I really love the Theme My Login plugin as I do not like for my customers to see the default WordPress login screens. Perhaps this is something that can be suggested as a feature for future Jigoshop versions? The ability to theme the default login screens to match?

    I'm going to put in a support ticket with the TML plugin author as well, just to see if he can suggest any work arounds for the error messages not showing.

    Have a nice day!

    We can't add those options because every theme looks different. Those options should be present in the theme really.

    This is really more a bug in TML.
