OK, but some problems
By , for WP 4.0

This seemed to be a good way to customise my login/registration/password reset system. Not especially easy to figure out how to make it look right with my theme (Magazine Basic) but it's free and, frankly, there don't seem to be many useful alternatives. (By the way, as a Drupal user, this seems odd to me - why don't WP designers want more freedom here?)

Anyway, the deal-breaking reason for discontinuing using this plugin was that it conflicts with a very handy plugin called Testimonials by Aihrus - a very easy-to-use testimonials slider I really didn't want to give up on. S8 conflicts with it such that my testimonials (placed as a widget in my first sidebar) don't show up until after the user has logged in, at which point it works fine.

Because of this, I had to abandon S8 in favour of Pie Register, which does the job as expected and actually seems to be a lot better than S8 anyway. Sorry S8! :0/

I installed the plugin, customized nothing, went to the login page, no form. Doesn't get much simpler than that and it already doesn't work. Tried customizing the form... no luck.

The Best Plugin in The Field!

I tried several plugins that do pretty much the same - and s8 is leading by miles!

no options for css optimization
By , for WP 3.5.2

Poor CSS customization options. When it gets the CSS from my template, it is messed up. I am still looking for the right plugin.

The best!

Other login customization plugins essentially just prettify the standard WordPress login page. This is the only one I know that enables you to customize the login page to fit your own theme.

This plugin is great for rebranding wordpress but has some minor bugs for example i cant see the "remember me" text next to the checkbox but still a great plugin
