This is a fresh install of Magento ver. 188.8.131.52. During checkout, when selecting the second option “Register”, which is directly under “Checkout as Guest”, click “Continue”, fill up the information, select “Ship to this address”, click “Continue”, it bounces me to the shopping cart page again. I’m supposed to be already registered at this point, but I’m not. The “Manage Customers” section in admin doesn’t show my registration; now when I try to log myself in via front end it says “Invalid login or password.” It doesn’t surprise me, as I’ve said the admin doesn’t show me as registered.
In Magento there are 2 places that one could supposedly get registered as a customer via front-end, clicking “Create an Account” under “My Account” page, or clicking “Register” during checkout. For me, only the “Create an Account” method works.
It is important for the second method to work as well. I need this fixed ASAP.
