s2Member does indeed hijact the login process and it must run before Link so Link never has a chance to run.
Can I get a temp admin account so I can make a very minor tweak to Link to see if it resolves the issue? Details can be posted here as a private reply.05/23/2013 at 10:03 am #260786This reply has been marked as private.05/23/2013 at 2:19 pm #260805
Ok … I logged in, made the very minor edit to Link. I then opened a private browser window so I could login as *****2 [you’ll know what the stars stand for]. If I read correctly, this user was not yet linked, correct? After I logged in as *****2 and when to the edit my directory entry page, I was presented with the details from Connections entry as expected.
You want to give it a try?05/27/2013 at 10:36 am #260995
Thanks for this. Your change does now mean that if an Administrator creates a user and then creates a Connections entry with the same email address the association is made when the user logs in despite the S2member plugin still being active.
What is a problem though is that when a user updates the email address is duplicated. If they log out and in again the fields double again, so after two logins the email field is there four times. I think this also applies to any other field block edited, so making an edit to home address causes that block to double up too…05/27/2013 at 1:26 pm #260998
Yes, with S2memeber active the links should now create as expected. The data duplication issue was a permissions issue with the S2member role. I reset the role capabilities and then set the edit permission … now it seems all is well. One thing to keep in mind, after updates to Connections, you’ll have to reset the role capabilities.05/27/2013 at 6:43 pm #261010
Sounds like this is something that has to be done on updating / reactivating EITHER S2Member OR Connections where they are both active. Thanks for that Steve looks like we have a workable solution. I will add ‘Dashboard Site Notes’ plugin to any install that uses this combination so as to leave a reminder of this visible to admin users!06/04/2013 at 12:30 pm #261635
To use your patch on another site should I copy all the code from connections-link/connections_link.php if that is where you made an edit?
Will you be incorporating the change into the release version too?06/04/2013 at 8:07 pm #261726
Yes, to migrate the fix to another site, just copy the connecitons_link.php file to the other site.
Yes, I will be adding this change to the released version. I have put out an update because I made a few other changes that still require additional testing.
