I do have an update, unreleased, that seems to fix the issue for those that encounter it. If you provide login details for a temp admin account, I’ll log in and install it for you. You can leave the details here as a private reply or use the contact link at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, I will be releasing the update in the next couple days which you’ll be free to download and install.12/29/2013 at 9:33 am #276128Christine BudzowskiGuestThis reply has been marked as private.12/30/2013 at 10:33 am #276167
I just uploaded the updated version. I was going to do a quick test … I created a test user and a test entry however anytime I tried to login with the test user it amember claimed it was an invalid user. I’m not familiar with amemer or its workflow so I just deleted the test user and entry. Please let me know if it resolves the issue or not. Thanks!01/07/2014 at 1:13 am #276549Christine BudzowskiGuest
Sorry for the delay in testing. The links are still not working. We tried with members who used the same email address in their profile, and we added an email address and kept it private for a member whose listing did not show the email address associated with her user login account.
Using aMemberPro members must log in through aMemberPro’s login screen rather than WordPress. Would that cause the problem?01/07/2014 at 12:15 pm #276567
I supposed it is possible for aMember to “login” a WP user without going thru WP at all. This definitely would break Link and a handful of other plugins.
I did just upload another tweaked version that I just updated because another user was still having an issue with a different member plugin.
Could you give it another go? Or, before testing … any Connections entry you tested on, edit each one. You only need to click update.
If that still doesn’t do it … can you create a test user that I can login and out with so I can figure what tweak I need to apply to be compatible with aMember?01/08/2014 at 10:54 am #276679Christine BudzowskiGuest
Will test and get back to you.

I have look at the aMember WP Intergration plugin code, well at least the best I can in the plugin editor on your site… I don’t see anything that really hints at how they are processing the single sign-on integration with WP. My best guess is that they are completely bypassing the WP login processes and actions. If that is the case, Link just will not work as designed … as well a couple other plugins I’ve run into. Honestly, mostly membership plugins, so that reduces that list significantly as one wouldn’t run more than one membership plugin. The only other I can think of was one of the events calendars for WP. I can’t remember which one though.
With that said … I uncommented some code, in Link that I only use for testing. Now, if a user visits the “Edit My Directory Entry” admin page, it’ll run the linking process. It worked on my test account. The downside, a user must visit this page in order for the link to happen rather than on login. Will that work for you? One of my longer term solutions is to add a cron to Link that will proactively link accounts. That will definitely solve the problem, but that doesn’t help you today.
I added the “Add Entry” capability so users could add an entry, if one doesn’t exist in Connections. Without that capability, they would just receive a message stating they do not have permission to add an entry and to contact the site admin.01/12/2014 at 11:24 pm #276953Christine BudzowskiGuest
That seems to be a great solution. We will run tests on it tomorrow morning to make sure it works for the different levels of users.
If you add the cron job would it be possible to link more than one directory listing? We have member schools as well as individual memebrs, but the schools are tied to the individual memebr account and use the same login. I’ve read that you are considering adding the capability to link to more than one listing, so I’d like to add my request to the others. Right now we’ll manage since we only have 20 schools and can manually update the school listings for our members.
I want to thank you for the excellent support you’ve offered for this product. I’m very pleased and have purchased the product for other web sites I manage. Looking forward to the next release!
