I want to place the wp-login.php box or page kind of in the templates of the website. As in I want a page which has all of it in.

I did search and found that I can use wp_login_form(). Yes, I've looked into that, but it doesn't display any error messages, and keeps redirecting to wp-login.php. I did look into preventing it from redirecting to wp-login.php, but it still doesn't display any error messages.

I want to either place the entire wp-login.php into the center of the page (between the header and the footer, where the content is) or be able to easily create a login page where the errors are printed automatically by using a snippet or something, because I'm installing plugins over time and they have many new errors that would need tending to.

I have looked into these questions and links already:

How can I redirect user after entering wrong password?

I've also looked at the different wordpress hooks such as the authenticate and login failed as well as signon among others. I'm trying to look for a way. Should I just go ahead and create if statements based on the errors I'm expecting, or is there an easier way to display the errors?

This is what I want to do, basically. Desired Result

Thank you so much.

  • In default, form using wp_login_form redirects to the wp-login.php. If you dont want this then you need to do custom coding for submitting form using AJAX and redirect according to the AJAX response. – Nilambar Oct 20 '14 at 3:33
  • Hmm... Can't I somehow pull the wp-login.php into one of my pages or customize the wp-login.php to give it the header and footer of my website? (I'm looking for a JS free solution) – yaharga Oct 20 '14 at 3:36
  • Plugin Theme My Login does what you desire in this case. You can study that plugin how it works. I dont have such deep knowledge about that plugin. – Nilambar Oct 20 '14 at 3:39
