I would like to add a custom link to the footer section of the register form.

How can I do this?

I am using the login_footer hook:

add_action( 'login_footer',array($this, 'add_forum_menu'), 50, 2 );
function add_forum_menu() {
    //need code to append the new items on the menu 
) );

enter image description here

What is the actual question here. Please edit your question and explain what you want to do, what have you tried and what is the outcome. Your question is very fague, this probably why you don't get any response – Pieter Goosen Feb 25 '14 at 10:21

I was looking at the wp-login.php file and noticed that there's an action location :

<?php do_action('login_footer'); ?>

available... to use. So

add_action('login_footer', 'my_addition_to_login_footer');
function my_addition_to_login_footer() {
     echo '<div style="text-align: center;"><a href="#">link</a></div>';

That is why I said, edit your question to exatly what you need to do. Win only gave an answer to what he thought, because your question is incomplete – Pieter Goosen Feb 25 '14 at 11:52

enter image description hereI found the solution for this problem

add_action( 'login_footer',array($this, 'add_forum_menu'), 50, 2 );
 function add_forum_menu() {
    require 'templates/popup.php';

in popup.php

document.getElementById("nav").insertAdjacentHTML("afterbegin","<a href ='javascript:void(0)' onclick = clickpop()>custom signup</a>|");
function clickpop()
   window.open('register.php','name','height=500,width=500,toolbar=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no'); return false;
