Tonight I will be releasing WP-Members version 2.6.5. This is primarily a fix release with some functionality improvements.
I made some changes to the reCAPTCHA code used to display the CAPTCHA. This should fix the intermittent problems the IE users were having. I am moving away from the AJAX code that was being used and moved more in favor of how the WP reCAPTCHA plugin operates.
Two improvements were put in for the User Profile page. First, there was a hook for edit_user_profile but not show_user_profile, so as an admin, you could always see and edit the WP-Members additional fields for users, but you couldn’t see/edit these for yourself. In case there are users that want these additional fields for the admin user as well, now you can edit these for the admin when logged in as the admin.
Second, I added a modified version of the extra fields to show on the User Profile page when the user is logged in. Some plugin users have requested this feature, and it makes sense, especially from a compatibility standpoint with other plugins that might use the User Profile page. The additional fields that are editable by the user can now be seen on the User Profile page. (Admin only fields will not display.)
wpautop / wptexturize
In 2.6.4 I had added a fix for the wpautop function to prevent a line break in the login form. With that working, I have expanded this to wrap the entire login form and the registration form.
If you’re not sure what this means, it’s a technical, behind the scenes process that WP does to put in html p tags and line breaks, and based on when the shortcodes are executed, it was creating some layout problems for the WP-Members forms. WP-Members now carries its own self-contained override to exempt it from having p-tags and line breaks put in by WordPress.
