Then I show you how to create an email capture for an e-book system inside of WordPress.

    I have make a custom wp multipart registration form, that does it all so well, but fails over every other day. Thats because of a session security feature that WP uses to validate that the form information came from the current site, rather than an untrustworthy external source.

    this is a simple hidden form input:
    type=”hidden” id=”_wpnonce” name=”_wpnonce” value=”notsosecretstring”

    Do you know about this, and how to “dynamically” get this value from the actual registration site?

    —- actual registration url: http://myclientx.com.na/wp/register
    —–external registration url: http://myclientx.com.na/wp/folderx/custom.php

    I added this:

    $content = ”;
    if (function_exists(‘wp_nonce_field’)){
    $content .= wp_nonce_field(‘_wpnonce’);
    }
    $content .= ‘…’;

    and tried this:

    oh, and… this form doesnt use any wp codex, cause its supposed to do other cP staff and only post the registration information, that matches the cP information to WP to complete the registration.

    I woke up this morning and thought I need a registration form on my website. I spent all day struggling through tutorials and php to no success, when finally at nine o’clock this evening I thought, “I bet Derek Banas has a solution. He knows everything about WordPress.”. An hour later success. I just wish I had thought to check here 12 hours earlier.
    Thank-you so much from Kamakura, Japan
