Magento Customers cannot login - showing “Invalid login or password.”

Magento Customers cannot login - showing “Invalid login or password.”

Hi guys


I am running Magento CE ver. 1.9.2.2.

 

I have this issue where I create a new customer account, which successfully registers and logs in automatically after registration. However, after I logout and try to log back in, I get the standard incorrect login or password validation error.

 

The odd thing is that old accounts have no issues logging in, so I wonder if there is an error in terms of storing passwords. However, I have checked the database table and the hashed passwords are being stored properly. It almost seems like a vaulty validation function.

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers

M

Hi @Marked13,

 

Are you using a custom theme? (maybe some issue with the form key)

All those clients were created at frontend? Can you check if customer group value is correct for those customer?

I am indeed using a custom theme, but it is up to date in respect of when they bought in the form keys. 

 

Those clients were created from the front-end, but same result for customers created in the back-end. Seems like any newly created clients' passwords aren't validating correctly. 

 

The custom group value is correctly set. Even if I manually change it to something else - same result.

@Marked13 Can you show your login form code? Based on seeing code, we can help for you.

 

Thanks.

Sure, however, given that older accounts are logging in just fine, I don't think it's the form that is the issue.
