My #1 pick
By , for WP 4.1.1

When first installed WordPress for my professional-wrestling (no pun intended) site, I used this plugin for the login widget.

Now I develop sites, and to this day I recommend this widget to all of my clients. It's the best one out there and the most simple one. :)

Kudos to Mike for this plugin.

This a good and a simple plugin, which is easy to implement on your site.
Thank you!

Works perfectly plus...

Straightforward install, works perfectly as described. Also keeps default login as before installation. An added extra that I have lost somewhere along the way is that it keeps me logged in in FF when I come back after shutting down, until I specifically log out. Perfect during development. I plan to put log in relatively hard to see in the footer.

Good job

This is a fantastic utility for your widget arsenal. Highly configurable, with many options to manage how and where you're site users login. Thank you so much for making this available to the community.

This widget works great with many themes, especially if the theme has support to form input style! This is a recommended widget by me!

At first I thought that this plugin is useless for shop woocommerce site and used dedicated woocommece login plugin. But it had some problems: it wasn't translated in my language and logging off automatically redirected me to the main frontend site of the whole WP netowork that I set(shop is set on subdomain).

What I found out in short time about Sidebar Login:

- It automatically shows my language version so there is no need for manual translation!
- I can get rid of the useless (in my case) default links to WP areas that are in this plugin
- I needed links to shop sites as My account and by simply experimenting I found out that all I need is to put the code: My account|http://mysite.com/my-account/
- Register link was unfortunately redirecting to WP admin area so... I was able to turn it off
- Instead of default register link, I put custom link to registering within a shop and it was placed in the same place as default link - Great!

In short, I was able to customize this plugin completely! Additionally it takes less space the woocommerce version so it's so much better, in any way!
