    If you are using the Better WordPress Security plugin your users my not be able to login after registering if you have the ‘Hide’ function turned on that re-writes the login / register / admin paths using htaccess.

    Solution:

    Open header.php in the CP43 directory and find on line 131

    /wp-login.php

    and replace with

    /login

    … save it and this will correct the problem and your users will be able to login again.

    wp-login.php is the wordpress core file, this is not a theme fix its a WP one.

    Hi Mark good morning,

    we are trying to work with wp-better security on auctiontheme 7.1.4
    we work with it with good luck on different themes but now we are unlucky
    to get it working on this nice theme.
    we can bypass it for the login when people first hit the register button and then the login button then it is working but not when you hit login first.

    maybe that you have a solution for this because in the light of wp attacks we need better protection for the site.

    or that you have another solution

    thanks for your time Mark

    have a nice day

    milo
