Other Notes

How to use the Flexible Frontend Login shortcode on your site

On the widget settings page choose the Flexible Frontend Login and adjust the settings to your site.

In a post or page place [flexible-frontend-login]

By default the shortcode uses the settings set on the admin options page

You can override those default values with the following parameters and options:

  • vertical=top, bottom
  • horizontal=left, right

So your shortcode might look like this:

  • [flexible-frontend-login vertical=bottom horizontal=left]

If you want to use the centered login form with darkened overlay in the background use [flexible-frontend-login-modal] without any parameters.

How to use the Flexible Frontend Login template tag on your site

In template files place:

<?php if ( function_exists('flexible_frontend_login') ) flexible_frontend_login( 'bottom', 'left' ); ?>

To change popups behavior you can use

  • "bottom" or "top"
  • "left" or "right"

For popup with overlay use:

<?php if ( function_exists('flexible_frontend_login_modal') ) flexible_frontend_login_modal(); ?>
