WordPress Login :: Red Rokk Widget Collection


WordPress is a great platform for creating websites, sure, it could be better, but that will come in time. Today I wanted to talk to you about the common requirement to use WordPress as a Website and not as a blogging platform. As a blogging platform you really don’t need users registering or logging into your blog, but as a website, it’s crucial that you have a clean and professional registration page. This requirement is the reason that we have built this Login Plugin for WordPress.

 The existing Login form used by many WordPress site owners can be found at http://example.com/wp-login.php Of course, as a developer, if you’re trying to hide the fact that a customers website is built on WordPress, then you’ll want a custom login page and style for their users.

Thus, the requirement for a plugin that will allow you to place the login and registration forms anywhere on your website. I’ve attempted this feat many times and have finally found a solution that is both stable and customizable from site to site. The goal was simple, migrate the features from the wp-login.php page into my themed pages.

The solution started by encapsulating all of the functionality of this page into a private class. Because I made the class completely independent from anything else that the administrators or core developers were doing, I was able to stabilize this login form. I then used my trusty Empty Widget Abstract class to interface the login form and wallah! I have a customizable and stable system for managing the login and registration requirements of a user.

With this plugin, you now have the ability to display the login form inside any page, post or custom listing type that you desire. I hope you enjoy your new found ability to fully customize the login and registration areas within your theme. Please be sure to post your website as an example use of this fine plugin. Thanks!

  1. Got a question: I have an external root HTML page outside of WP. I want to embed a WP login form to this page. When a user registers or logs in, I want the auth to happen without leaving this HTML page. Of course it will call upon the WP database to verify users.

    Like you say, I don’t want anyone to know I’m using WP, but I need it for the user management. The WP install won’t even have any content. The purpose is for a 3rd party PHP app that is bridged with WP and the user auth/database.

    I believe there are 2 options:
    1. Put the WP registration/login form into my HTML page or
    2. put the HTML into the WP login page

    Not sure what’s best or the most feasible. Hope you can point me in the right direction. Thanks!
