How to Create a Custom Login Page In WordPress? #
Do you want to create a custom login page for your WordPress site? A custom login page allows your users to login from a custom page on your site instead of the default WordPress login page. In this article, we will show you how to create a custom login page in WordPress without writing any code.
Why and When You Need a Custom Login Page for WordPress? #
If you are running a membership site without using a WordPress membership plugin, then your users will register and login using the default WordPress login screen.
This may work fine for small websites. However, if you are running a business website or a busy online community, then you may want to show your own brand instead of WordPress.
One way to do that is by adding your own logo and white label the WordPress admin dashboard. But if you don’t want users to access the admin area when they login, then you will need to add a custom login page.

Having said that, let’s see how to easily create a custom login page in WordPress without writing any code.
