Sideways8 Custom Login and Registration

Hides the WP login page, allows you to "embed" login in a page, and allows customization on how the login page looks.

HELP! I'm unable to login! What happened?

Despite our best attempts, it is possible that a WordPress update or another plugin may cause an issue with our plugin and you will be unable to login. To get around this use the following URL: http://yourDomainName.com/wp-login.php?no-redirect=true NOTE: Replace yourDomainName.com with your domain name. If your WordPress install is in a subdirectory (e.g. yourDomainName.com/folder/wp-login.php) then adjust the URL as needed.

How do I use the shortcode and what is it?

A shortcode is an easy and accessible way for any site owner to add custom functionality to their site. In this case it allows you to put our login, registration, and forgot password forms on ANY page of your site.

To use it simply place one of the following shortcodes where you want the form to appear: Login: [s8-login-form] Registration: [s8-registration-form] Forgot password: [s8-forgot-form]

You can also add the option 'hide_links' to your shortcode to hide the links to the other forms.

[s8-login-form hide_links="forgot,register"]

The above will, for example, hide the links to the forgot password and registration forms. You can also use 'login' as an option.

How can I change the CSS on the login/register/forgot/reset password pages?

Make a new css file in your theme folder called 's8-login.css' and add your CSS to it. This will replace the stylesheet that comes with the plugin without being overwritten every time the plugin updates.

How can I change the layout of the login/register/forgot/reset password pages?

On the settings page there is an option to change which theme file is used for displaying the login/register/forgot/reset password page. If you want a completely custom layout you may create a new theme file and place it inside your theme folder (this requires that you know how to make a new theme template file that uses the WordPress Loop). Only requirements for it to work are that the header gets loaded, that the_content() gets called inside the loop, and that you name it 's8-login.php' OR make sure the following is at the beginning of your file:

  * Template Name: Your Template Name

Requires: 3.3 or higher
