Theme My Login
[resolved] Log In - Menu Bar (12 posts)

    When I add the page called "Login" generated by the plugin to my menu it shows "Log In" when not logged in and "Log Out" when logged in.

    This is cool but I would like it to say "Login / Register" when not logged in so it looks more attractive to visitors that aren't currently members.

    Is there a way to do this? It doesn't seem to be possible in the way normal menu items can be renamed.

    Create a a file named theme-my-login-custom.php in your wp-content/plugins directory. Add the following to it:

    <?php function tml_title_filter( $title, $action ) {
    	if ( 'login' == $action )
    		return 'Login / Register';
    	return $title;
    add_filter( 'tml_title', 'tml_title_filter', 10, 2 ); ?>

    Thanks but this only changes the widget which is not what I wanted.

    I want the Login / Register text to appear in the normal wordpress menu.

    I assume you're using the wp_nav_menu() function with a custom menu?

    Try this:

    Hi Jeff, yes I just added the "Login" page that was automatically generated to the main custom menu.

    I can't see the last code you pasted, the forum removed it.

    Didn't work for me but I found the text in class-theme-my-login.php and edited it directly which solved the problem.

    Thanks for your help Jeff, much appreciated. I love this plugin.

    All, to change the title "Log In" to something else, edit line #467 of the file "theme-my-login/includes/class-theme-my-login.php"


    $title = is_user_logged_in() ? __( 'Log Out', 'theme-my-login' ) : __( 'Log In', 'theme-my-login' );


    $title = is_user_logged_in() ? __( 'Log Out', 'theme-my-login' ) : __( 'Member Login', 'theme-my-login' );

    Great work on the plugin Jeff! It is a must for every WP installation!!!

    My Log In/ Log Out button takes the user to the Profile page and doesn't Log them out. I am using the "Members Only" plug-in which I thought might be causing the problem, but deactivating that Plug-in gave the same results. Any thoughts?

    hi guys,

    as ghozt's question has been resolved i thought id add another one which is related somewhat,

    im trying to add / or replace that logout button to "dashboard" instead
    so when im logged in i can enter the dashboard from the site aswell as the redirect after login...

    i have no reason to sign out of my own page so thought that changing the logout button would save some time instead of adding a dashboard button?

    alternatively is there a way to add a dynamic menu in wordpress the dashboard menu link is displayed only when logged in?

    thanks in advance guys

    I'd also like to change my menu button to something like "Secure Login / Register", but editing the plugin code directly as suggested by ghOzt would break the mod when the plugin is updated. I suggest making this a variable, say "login message", which can be accessed from the settings.

    Great plugin Jeff

    Thanx, Denis.
