With ZM Ajax Login & Register, you can create a custom login and registration page. No need for any custom post types, just create a normal WordPress page, add your own custom logo, text, and use the following shortcode
From the settings you can assign login and register modal boxes to menu items, and add a redirect URL. By assigning the login and register modals to menu items users will be able to click menu items, will display a single login or register form in a modal without any post content. Once the users login they can be redirected to a custom page, for example: “dashboard”, or “welcome”.
Now your visitors can login or register from the page you’ve set-up.
Each form has pre-set styling options and uses AJAX. From the settings you can choose either; stacked (default) or wide styling. Additional styling you can be achieved by adding your custom CSS or using one of the available hooks.
Feel free to contact us and will add any additional hooks you need. The forms use AJAX to verify that the username and email are valid and are not already in use.
If you’ve enabled the Facebook login or register, from your settings, the Facebook button will display in the form. Each user that logins with Facebook will be register as a “subscriber” and their Facebook profile picture will be used as their avatar.

How can WP authorize such low quality aberrations?
When i try to open registration page it is showing the below error
User registration is currently not allowed, can you tell if you any suggestions.
It works as advertised and I appreciate that it’s easy to customize. I do notice that some themes have issues with this plugin. But, I really appreciate the author’s work and upkeep on this plugin while keeping it free.
it does not work, will not log in. Obviously just forgotten about and not updated.
Support would be nice. User name always in 12233432278293 not a user name.
Popup Login & register don’t work.
