I’m trying to use the “private shop” feature as described here: https://openfoodnetwork.org/user-guide/advanced-features/private-shopfronts/
So as a hub manage I add the email myriam[a]ouishare.net in the customer list of the hub named “AMAP Caen 1”. Then in the hub menu I check “require customers to login”.
In another browser, I login, then clic on the shop, I can access it.
As a hub manager, I fill in for the same hub the customer list with a new name: olivier_krener[a]hotmail.com, this customer has not yet an account on OFN. So when he clics on the shop link, he sees this message asking him to connect if he has an account, or login.
He doesn’t have an account, so he clicks on “signup” (s’inscrire) and create an account with the same email olivier_krener[a]hotmail.com.
But then it’s impossible to access the shop, when I click on the shop page I see that:
The message saying that the shop is only for members.
I can check in the customer list for the hub, the email is in the list…
So it seems to me that if I enter an email for someone who has not yet an account in a customer list, there is a bug, he can’t access the shop if he creates his account after… is that right? Or do I do something wrong?
We want to use that feature or a buying group reserved to members, they have entered the 400 emails addresses, but they don’t manage to access the shop…
@sstead can you tell me if I do something wrong, or if there is a bug?
I see another issue as well… I tried to delete the same customer from the customer list, and the system prevent me to delete it from the hub’s customer list… it says there are orders associated (but the user has never accessed any shopfront!) and even if they were, what if a member based hub wants to delete a member because he is not member anymore?
Again, maybe I’m doing something wrong…
