Nice Login Widget
[resolved] Rename wp-login.php to userlogin (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I am using the rename "wp-login.php" plugin and have renamed my WordPress login to "userlogin". This is working perfectly with WordPress.

    I just installed the "nice login widget" which is great for what I need but the login link is the wp-login.php link which no longer exists.

    How would I change this plugin so that login is directed to "userlogin" instead of the "wp-login.php" link.

    Thank you!

    The plugin author needs to use wp_login_url() instead of hardcoding wp-login.php. I also get a lot of notices and warning for this one btw.

    Thanks for your reply Janneke!

    Is this an easy fix that I can do on my end or does the author have to take care of this? By easy fix, I mean delete one or two codes and replace them with another.

    sgPlanwize if there is an easy fix that I can do on my end to your plugin to redirect login to userlogin instead of wp-login.php, please do let me know. It is perfect for what I need right now and I really would like to use it.

    If not please let me know if you could look into this for your next update.

    Thanks.

    Hi guys and sorry for the delay,

    Janneke Van Dorpe you right, I do need to use the built in function wp_login_url() , I didn't know that there is an official way to rename the wp-login.php file.

    Sofia55, for now I wouldn't recommend changing lines in the code if you are not familiar with php and html.
    I can offer you to use the wp-ajax authentication(you can choose it under the widget options) which doesn't require wp-login.php file. It may help you until we will release the next version with this bug fixed.
