  • Not sure what you’ve pursued but I’d start here.

    Moderator kmessinger


    There are some plugins for that. You can do a google search and check here.

    Thanks Kmessinger,but I don’t want to use plugins

    @deepbevel, please I’ve seen the page you directed me to, but I don’t know how & where to input those codes,I know few basics in html, not good with advanced codes though

    I’m sure that’s why kmessinger recommended the plugin route.
    I haven’t done what you want to do, but the codex makes some sence to me. It looks like you might start by adding the function to your theme and add your custom form id in this part

    'form_id' => 'loginform-custom',

    then use the given template tag in your login page template.

    alright thanks deepbeve, will try it out & update you on the result

    Hi deepbevel please I’ve been able to work on the form but keeps seeing error

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ‘,’ or ‘;’ in /home/haastrup/public_html/ on line 25
    when I visit the page

    This is the FULL code

    Template Name: Custom WordPress Login
    global $user_ID;  
    if (!$user_ID) {  
    //We shall SQL escape all inputs
    $username = $wpdb->escape($_REQUEST['username']);
    $password = $wpdb->escape($_REQUEST['password']);
    $remember = $wpdb->escape($_REQUEST['rememberme']);  
    if($remember) $remember = "true";
    else $remember = "false";
    $login_data = array();
    $login_data['user_login'] = $username;
    $login_data['user_password'] = $password;
    $login_data['remember'] = $remember;
    $user_verify = wp_signon( $login_data, true );   
    if ( is_wp_error($user_verify) )
       echo ("<span class='error'>Invalid username or password. Please try again!</span>");
     } else
       echo ("<script type='text/javascript'>window.location='". get_bloginfo('') ."'</script>");
    } else {

    alright checking it up thanks so much

    Hi guys thanks for all the contribution,@ Deepbevel I’d checked on the link you gave me its great, I’ve even done all they said but still have some errors showing, but I’ve got very thing I’m looking for after making some searches on google, so I don’t need to do all that coding again. The theme my login Plugin is the best solution, worked like charm Theme my Login is the exact stuff I’m looking for. @kmessinger like you said a its a plugin that did the magic 🙂

    glad you found your solution. I’ll keep it in mind.

    yeah it sure did the magic 🙂 will recommend to anyone who want to tweak or change the default WP login forms and have itas a Frontend Login for users,.It took less than 2min to setup & get what I’d spent soo long working on. Great Plugin!! & Once again thank you guys for coming to my aid
