If you have a website with registered users, whether it’s a membership or an online store, you will probably be interested on adding a popup modal for a cleaner login into WordPress.
One option is to use some plugin that allows us to insert the form somewhere on the web (sidebar, footer or a specific page), using a shortcode or directly with code in the template. However that login form takes up space and it can be complicated to find the ideal site and give it the format we want.
In this post we’ll see the Osom Modal Login plugin, which allows you to display that form in a modal window above the content from any page of your website and be able to customize it to suit the style and behavior we need.
The plugin adds, in the menu that we indicate, the option of ‘Login’ that will display the form in a popup modal. Conveniently it will change to ‘Logout’ once the user is logged.
Once installed and activated, you can navigate to settings page and set:
- The title of the modal box.
- The navigation menu where you want to add login/logout item.
- You can select the ‘none’ option if you don’t want to add it in any menu location.
- You can select more than one menu holding the Ctrl or Cmd key.
- The label for login and logout menu.
- The login and logout redirection URL.
In addition, you can choose if you want to display or hide the “Remember me” checkbox and the link to recover the forgotten password.
