Wordpress Login validation on theme
Wordpress Login validation on theme

 7:21 pm on May 2, 2011 (gmt 0)

Bit of a newbie here so bear with me.

I was able to find some code that almost did what I want which is essentially adding the wordpress login to my theme but the problem is that if there isn't a valid user it redirects to the wordpress back end. Is there a user_verify function or something out there that will simply display a message on the page?

Here's the code I currently have:

<?php if (!(current_user_can('level_0'))){ ?>

<div id="user_login">
<form action="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/wp-login.php" method="post">
<input type="text" name="log" id="log" value="<?php echo wp_specialchars(stripslashes($user_login), 1) ?>" size="20" />
<input type="password" name="pwd" id="pwd" size="20" />
<label class="username" for="log">Username</label>
<label class="password" for="password">Password</label>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Send" class="button" />
<input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="<?php echo $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>" />

<a class="register_now" href="?page_id=77">Register Now</a>
<img class="form_bottom" src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/library/images/form_bottom.png" />

<?php } ?>

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Does anybody happen to know on this one or maybe a better solution or different solution.

I'm pretty desperate here so anything would help :)

Would these do the job:

Hi Ergophobe,

Thanks for the suggestion but it actually kind of does the same thing were if you enter a wrong username and password it shoots you to the wordpress backend and gives you an error. I'm looking to keep you on the same page but give you an error.

Thanks :)

I think you'll need to write something to do the check yourself. OR switch to a theme built to accommodate a user community like BuddyPress.

Thanks lorax! I was hoping it wouldn't have to come to that but I think your right can't seem to find another way to do it.
