I don't want to use a plugin for this one and i would like to know how i can use a custom form for WP login. I made a form with bootstrap and i added the form action and two hidden fields but it doesn't work

 <form name="loginform" id="loginform" class="form-signin login_form" action="<?php echo esc_url( wp_login_url() ); ?>" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="http://localhost/mydomain.dev/_site/wp-admin/<?php //echo $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]; ?>" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="testcookie" value="1" />

Or should i let this go and alter wp-login.php with hook and filters???

Any tips?
