How to Create a Custom Login Page for WordPress
Do you want to create a custom login page for your WordPress site? A custom login page lets you customize the page for users to sign up for your site instead of using the default WordPress login page. In this article, we will show you how to create a custom login page for WordPress without writing any code.
For the first method in our video, we will be using the Theme My Login plugin found here:
With that installed and activated the plugin will attempt to use your theme’s styling to create a login page. You can customize the plugin’s settings under the TML settings area. This allows you to allow custom emails and even redirection through the plugin.
For our second method, we will be using the premium version of WPForms found here:
You will be given a zip file that you would upload under Plugins, Add New, and click the upload button at the top of the page. Activate the plugin and it will take you to the WPForms welcome page. Activate the product key for the site and in the addons area, we will activate the user registration addon.
With the plugin and it’s addon active, create a new form, name it, and create a new User Login Form. By default it will have a username and password field set up for use and in the settings you can decide where the user goes after logging in. All you need to do now is go to a page, add any customizations you would like, and then click the add form button to select and insert the code for your form to appear on that page when you publish it.

I have been using free WordPress page. I have no domain. Can I install this?
WordPress.com does not allow plugins on their free plan sadly.
Be advised: This is a commercial plugin. All that the video is showing is paid for!
Thank you for letting us know, the Theme My Login plugin was updated after this video was created 🙂
Can I use Theme My Login and add a Facebook login? Any guidance greatly appreciated!!
You would want to reach out to the plugin’s support for if they have that integration.
Great into. Can you show how after you log in that you are redirected to a page that is specific to that user and how you would determine what to display on that page dynamically?
Sadly, at the moment we don’t have a guide for that but we will certainly take a look into it
Can’t find this login plugin? I’m using Elementor, how do you add this?
The plugin had some significant updates after this video was created but you can find it here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-my-login/
Looks like the developer of this plugin is fighting his caorner after making all the extenstion paid. The very very basic of the plugin is free but from the comments over the last 6 months there are now security issues. One of the paid for extensions is a security feature to help prevent bruteforce attacks!
