This shortcode uses the built-in WordPress login form function to display a simple login form. You can style the login form using the standard WordPress CSS classes.

Shortcode Examples

This shortcode WILL NOT DISPLAY if you are already logged in or logged in as an admin!




This is how the shortcode looks like with a redirect url and a show always parameter:

[memb_loginform show="always" redirect="/members/"]

The above shortcode will display the login box even after the user has logged in.  Once a user has logged in, it will redirect the user to http://www.yourmain.com/members.

Customized Example Usage:

[memb_loginform username_label="Email Address" button_label="Login Now" password_label="Password"]


Shortcode Parameters

redirect: Specify a URL to go to after login, or #current.page# to return to the current page.  By default the member will be directed to the page as specified in the membership level, or the home page if no page is specified by their membership.

form_id: default = ‘loginform’

username_label: default = ‘Username’

password_label: default = ‘Password’

button_label: default = ‘Log In’

show: default = ‘never’

remember: yes/no – default = ‘no’
When set to ‘no’ the remember me checkbox will not be shown. When set to yes and member checks the box, their login cookie will last for 1 days (they won’t need to enter credentials for 1 day). This does not remember the username or password – it just keeps them logged in. This can cause session data (tags, updates) to be outdated and we do not recommend using this option.

remember_label: Label for the remember checkbox. Default is ‘Remember Me’.


This shortcode uses the built-in WordPress login form function to display a simple login form. You can style the login form using the standard WordPress CSS classes.

The CSS classes are as follows:


If you don’t see your desired results when applying these classes, there are a couple of potential issues. Your theme’s CSS may be interfering, or if your CSS is in your content it may be mangled by WordPress. You can get around the WordPress formatting issue by moving your CSS into your theme’s style.css file, or by using one of the several plugins that allow you to add custom CSS to your pages from the WordPress page/post editor.

Additional Information

Setting a Custom Login Failed Message

By default, Memberium will display a “Login Failed” message if the user enters incorrect login details. If you’d like to change this message, you can do so by enabling “Multi-language” support.

Go to Memberium > Settings > Page Handling and enable the “Multi-language Support”

Once it’s enabled, go to Memberium > Settings and click on the language tab. You’d then enter details like this:

Context: memb_loginform
Original text: Login Failed
New Text: Enter new login failed message here

You’d leave the Name and Language fields to the default values.

Once this is done, click on Add/update.

Add Placeholder Text Using jQuery

You can use jQuery to set the placeholder attributes on the element.

jQuery("#id").attr("placeholder", "text to display");

As an example, the code below will add a placeholder “Your Username Placeholder here”

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
 jQuery("input[name=log]").attr("placeholder", "Your Username Placeholder here");
 jQuery("input[name=pwd]").attr("placeholder", "Your Password Placeholder here");

You can place this in the Memberium JavaScript box:
