  • You just need the one line of code somewhere on you main page somewhere: <?php wp_loginout(); ?>

    sorry for not being detailed enough, ya I have the <?php wp_loginout(); ?> in my index.php.

    but I am wondering if its possible to have a form in my main index.php page which allows me/others to key in login info (username and password). Then after they submitted, they will be directed to the admin page.

    I see, so you want to put the fields from the login screen onto your page… got it.

    That’s a damn good question, and now i’m going to spend some time working on it…

    Yep! It’s possible. Here’s the code I use:

    global $user_ID, $user_identity;
    if (!$user_ID):
    <form name="loginform" id="loginform" action="<?php echo get_settings('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php" method="post">
    <div><label><?php _e('Username') ?>:<input type="text" name="log" id="log" value="" size="15" tabindex="7" /></label><br />
    <label><?php _e('Password') ?>: <input type="password" name="pwd" id="pwd" value="" size="15" tabindex="8" /></label>
    <input type="submit" name="Login" value="<?php _e('Login'); ?> &raquo;" tabindex="9" />
    <?php wp_register('', ' <i>Registration is FREE and gives you the ability to post comments.</i>'); ?>
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="<?php echo $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>"/></div>
    <?php wp_register(); ?>
    <li><a href="<?php echo get_settings('siteurl') . '/wp-login.php?action=logout&amp;redirect_to=' . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>"><?php _e('Logout'); ?></a></li>

    PS You can see it in action on the left side of my page.


    Suggestion is “hidden” in code above.

    One more tidbit. If you don’t want it to say “Site Admin” when people are logged in, go to your wp-includes directory and open the file template-functions-general.php. Search for “Site Admin” and change it to “View Profile” or whatever you want.

    wow, so many replies I’ve got… thanks guys! I will experiment it once my host is up. Its a pity I cannot try them out yet since my host is down.

    can i login to wordpress from php code itself without revealing the info to the user ?

    i mean no form nothing…..

    they are automatically signed it to wordpress with some role.
    how do i do that?
