1.1.15 SeedProd Login Page Pro
Do you want to create a WordPress custom login page for your website? If you run a membership site or online store, your users will need a page where they can log in and access your website. Therefore, customizing the default WordPress login area will help you reflect your brand and provide a better user experience.
In this article, we’ll show you how to customize your WordPress login page in 2 different ways.
Why should I create a WordPress custom login page?
Depending on your WordPress host, the default WordPress login page will display the WordPress brand and logo. If you’re a small blog or website, this is perfectly fine, as you’re likely the only one with administrative access.
But if your website allows people to become registered users and log in to your dashboard, the WordPress custom login area provides a better, more professional user experience.
When you use your own design and logo, users feel more comfortable because they recognize your brand. However, if you send users to a login screen that is completely different from your website, it may look suspicious to inexperienced users.
Furthermore, the default WordPress login screen is nothing but a login form. Therefore, you can’t use this space to promote other pages or create custom messages for your users.
Choose a plugin to customize your WordPress login page
The easiest way to create a WordPress custom login screen is to use a WordPress plugin that extends the functionality of your site and helps add additional features without hiring a developer or messing around with your own code.
