If you had to choose between the login form on the left or the right, you’d obviously pick the one on the right. It looks way more professional.

Having a custom branded login page that you control can provide a much better experience than the standard WordPress login page. This short guide will show you how to create a custom, branded login page without requiring any other plugins or custom code.

The built-in page has a number of drawbacks such as extra link options and a WordPress logo that will take your users to WordPress.org instead of to your homepage. You’re potentially driving members away from your site.

Create a Page for Your Custom Login Page

First, create a new page on your site, and name it something simple, like “Login”. You can style this page however you want, including adding copy and graphics of your choosing.

If you’re using our Memberium Page Templates, we include two login pages already designed and setup. You just need to add your logo. One is already pictured above and the other one I’ve included below:

If you don’t want to use our page templates, move to the next step after creating a new blank page.

Add the Login Shortcode to the Page

After you’ve created your page, you’ll just want to place the following shortcode on the page.

[memb_loginform]

That shortcode will show the login form to members who aren’t already logged in. You can add more design elements, logos, text, and links as needed to the page.

Save and Publish your new page.

Optional Pro Tip

You can have the Login page redirect already logged in users to your membership dashboard with a few simple options. This step can help cut down on your user’s confusion if they end up on your login page after they’ve already logged in. Set the page permissions to “Logged Out Only”

Set the Prohibited action on the page to “Redirect”

Set the Redirect URL to the page where your membership dashboard is.

Test the New Page

Open a new browser and go to your login page. Try logging in with either an admin user or a regular user (or both). Memberium’s codes generate standard WordPress logins, so any kind of login should work fine.

Redirect wp-login.php to your new Page

Once you’re confident that your new login page is working, go to Memberium -> Settings, and scroll down and find the “Login Page” option, and set it to your newly created page.

How To Get In if Locked Out

If you accidentally set the wrong page in the above setting and you can’t reach a login page, you can override the system and access the old wp-login.php page by using the following URL: (replace the domain with your site)

How to use WooCommerce to Sell Your Membership Program Or Online Course with Memberium for ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign doesn’t have any built-in E-Commerce features. Which means if you want to sell an online course, membership program or any other type of digital product, you’ll need to use a separate piece of software to be able to sell anything.

The good news is you can use WooCommerce and ActiveCampaign’s Woocommerce plugin to be able to do this. This is available for free to all ActiveCampaign users who are on a Plus, Professional or Enterprise level plan.

Allow Autologin

This setting determines whether or not your site will allow you to use the autologin feature. The Autologin feature is inherently less secure because it replaces the user’s password with a simple number which can be easily brute-forced or guessed. Once someone obtains the Contact Id and the user’s email address they can continue to access the account even if the user changes the password.
