login

The easiest way to create a login form or a custom login page for WordPress is to add this shortcode to a post/page:

[wp_login_form]

If you wish to add it to the sidebar you can create a text widget and embed the shortcode into it.

The default should be fine for most sites. However, if you are an advanced user and wish to customize the login form, they are parameters that you can pass in the shortcode to customize it.

redirect

An absolute URL to which the user will be redirected after a successful login. For example,

[wp_login_form redirect="https://example.com/mypage/"]

The default is to redirect back to the URL where the form was submitted.

form_id

Your own custom ID for the login form. For example,

[wp_login_form form_id="myloginform"]
