"new user?" link has disappeared from login portlet

"new user?" link has disappeared from login portlet

"new user?" link has disappeared from login portlet

I've been working today on customizing a new Plone install, editing join_form, prefs_user_details and validate_registration, and adding some new groups (but not editing roles).  At some point during all this the "new user?" link which should appear at the bottom of the login portlet has disappeared.  In an attempt to troubleshoot I've tried to undo all my cusotomization, but "new user?" still hasn't reappeared.

Without reproducing all my edited code here, can those of you more familar with Plone/Zope give me an idea of some "likely culprits" that may be causing this?  I can see there is some conditional display code in the div that contains the "new user?" link, but as I'm very new to Plone, Zope and Python, its hard to use this in my troubleshooting.

Thanks in advance for any help that is offered.


RE: "new user?" link has disappeared from login portlet

Never encountered this I'm using Plone-2.0.5.

But I do encountered problem with logo, where my desired logo situated in 'custom' folder, was not retrieved (via Zope's acquisition path) correctly.  That I got away by reinstating it (removing & reputting) inside 'custom' folder.  It was seen ok again.

If you insist you undo everything (manually?), and still encounter odd results, I only recall above observation. i.e. the ghost version of your modified script is still running.

Of coz, a global 'Find for ID' at plone site level, for 'join_form', 'prefs_user_details' and 'validate_registration' ... also helps.  My actual experience was i kept too many version of 'customXXX' folders, and retained some of them in the skin's aquisition path.
