WEBFI-WordPress-How to Create a Custom Login Page for WordPress



Do you want to create a custom login page for your WordPress site? A custom login page lets you customize the page for users to sign up for your site instead of using the default WordPress login page. In this article, we will show you how to create a custom login page for WordPress without writing any code.

Timestamps
00:00 Intro
00:18 Method 1: Use Theme My Login
02:15 Method 2: how to add custom login with WPForms
05:30 Add custom login in sidebar

For the first method in our video, we will be using the Theme My Login plugin found here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-my-login

With that installed and activated the plugin will attempt to use your theme’s styling to create a login page. You can customize the plugin’s settings under the TML settings area. This allows you to allow custom emails and even redirection through the plugin.

For our second method, we will be using the premium version of WPForms found here:

https://wpforms.com

You will be given a zip file that you would upload under Plugins, Add New, and click the upload button at the top of the page. Activate the plugin and it will take you to the WPForms welcome page. Activate the product key for the site and in the addons area, we will activate the user registration addon.

With the plugin and it’s addon active, create a new form, name it, and create a new User Login Form. By default it will have a username and password field set up for use and in the settings you can decide where the user goes after logging in. All you need to do now is go to a page, add any customizations you would like, and then click the add form button to select and insert the code for your form to appear on that page when you publish it.

  • Dan Kardell on May 13, 2019

    Great into. Can you show how after you log in that you are redirected to a page that is specific to that user and how you would determine what to display on that page dynamically?

  • Nancy Smith on June 21, 2019

    Can't find this login plugin? I'm using Elementor, how do you add this?

  • Dog Treats UK Natural Dog Chews on November 4, 2019

    Looks like the developer of this plugin is fighting his caorner after making all the extenstion paid. The very very basic of the plugin is free but from the comments over the last 6 months there are now security issues. One of the paid for extensions is a security feature to help prevent bruteforce attacks!

  • Aryan Shekhawat on December 1, 2019

    Thanks it worked

  • Isaac Rodriguez on January 6, 2020

    Any feedback about a plugin to create redirects that can point to multiple client specific pages? My goal is to create a custom username/password that they can use on the login form to access their private information.
    Any feedback will be very helpful.
    Thx

  • Chris Miller on April 27, 2020

    I have a question, redirecting on successful login is good, but is that page actually protected? IE what if a person manually entered the redirect URL into the address bar, are they blocked from that page or can they view it?

  • jacoon89 on May 20, 2020

    Hi there, I would like to create a website where people can login to buy pdfs and enrol into paid online courses. Can you help me with this please. Thank you.

  • Royal Machine Solutions on June 19, 2020

    New version of Theme My Login – you have to create the pages yourself (also looks like it requires payment for proper functionality?)
    You create your own pages & add in the code snippet for TML

    eg. for a login page, I created the page, changed the slug of the page, then I added in the content:

    [theme-my-login action="login"]

    the words between the " " should match the slugs you set in Theme My Login Settings.

    Found instructions at the TML documentation help:

    Can Theme My Login allow you to create a password protected page with only one set of credentials?

  • Joan Houston on September 27, 2020

    This interface isn't even remotely similar to what I'm seeing on my mac. Completely worthless.

  • N K on October 14, 2021

    Hello great video ! Let's say I want to create a log in space for my members and once they log in, they will see extra content (posts).
    To do that, would I use wp forms, create the page with private posts and link its url to it ? Or I should go with another solution ?

  • Mohammed S. A. on November 29, 2021

    I am using WordPress theme for my website and while I'm editing it

    I can't see the Log In button which I see on the theme demo site on my page.

    I think the reason why the Log In button doesn’t appear is because, as the owner of the website, I am already Logged In. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    So how do I make the Log In button appear on my website even when I'm Logged In?

    Please help me fix this.
