How do you login to a users account from the front end?
not sure i understand the question, if you want to login you login as normal with the email/pass.
Sorry, let me explain…
How do I login to a users account as I don’t have their password?
Just go to your WP admin > Users section
Why login to a users account if you dont have their password?
I want to login as the ‘user’ in order to see how their account and settings look.
I know I can just go to your WP admin > Users section
But this does not show the users password in order to login as that user.
Wordpress automatically encrypts all passwords in the MySQL database, so (AFAIK) there’s no way you can see them unless a user gives you their PW.
I know, but what is the sense in being an Admin if you cannot access user accounts who are listed on your site?
