Is there a way to display the WordPress register form on a custom page the way one would use <?php get_search_form( $echo ); ?> for a search form? If not how would one go about creating such a template? I would like to do this without Ajax btw. Any pointers/ideas are very welcome!

Here is a function I've Used Before:

function registration_form_wpa95139(){
    if (is_user_logged_in()) return;
    <div class="Registration">
        <div id="register-form">
            <div class="title">
                <h1><?php _e('Register your Account'); ?></h1>
                <span><?php _e('Sign Up with us and Enjoy!'); ?></span>
            <form action="<?php echo site_url('wp-login.php?action=register', 'login_post') ?>" method="post">
                <input type="text" name="user_login" value="Username" id="user_login" class="input" placeholder="Username" />
                <input type="text" name="user_email" value="E-Mail" id="user_email" class="input"  placeholder="E-Mail" />
                    <?php do_action('register_form'); ?>
                    <input type="submit" value="<?php _e('Register'); ?>" id="register" />
                <hr />
                <p class="statement"><?php _e('A password will be e-mailed to you.'); ?></p>
    </div><!-- /Registration -->

and you can call it like this:

<?php registration_form_wpa95139() ;?>
  • Thanks, this worked! One last thing, a handy redirection so it doesn't take the user backend. <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="/success"/> Apr 10, 2013 at 9:53

Use this to redirect users to the page they were viewing before they were asked to log in/register <?php if (!is_user_logged_in()) auth_redirect(); ?>

Put it at the very top (line 1) of the page templates you want to make private before you call the header. Let me know if you have any problems.

  • Is it better to use that than <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="/success"/> ? If yes why? Apr 10, 2013 at 11:25
