Sidebar login is self explanatory really; it allows users to login to WordPress from the sidebar of your blog. The plugin consists of both a widget and a template tag making it flexible enough to work in any theme. Styling can be applied through CSS if it does not look quite right.
When a user logs in using the widget they will be redirected to the page they were previously looking at; they won’t be sent to the backend. Once logged in they will see a list of links which you can define on the plugin’s settings page.
You can configure the plugin in
Settings > Sidebar Login after installing it.
- Unzip and upload the php file to your wordpress plugin directory
- Activate the plugin
- For a sidebar widget: Goto the Appearance > Widgets – Drag the widget into a sidebar and save!
- To use the template tag: Add
<?php sidebarlogin(); ?>to your template.
