Add login/forget password/custom register/protected post form to my tempalte (7 posts)

    Hi all,

    How do I wrap my custom theme around the login/forget password/custom register forms. Also, I would like to style these to match my custom theme.

    When I say custom register form...I will create my own register form that ask for specific information. So, part 2 of my questions, is how do I have the original register form redirect to my custom register form? I am trying to do all of this without touching any wordpress code, so when I upgrade nothing breaks.

    Why can't I create a page with my custom header/sidebar/footer wrapped around the forms?

    There got to be a way. I found a few ways to customize the wp-login.php form page, but I can't style everything...they keep getting overruled, plus I want my own custom header/sidebar/footer.

    In additional to the redirect for the register form I would like to redirect the logout to point to my custom template with login form.

    Last...how do I style the protected post forms. I've got the input field styled, but not the buttom.

    I hope this makes sense.

    The login for is completely different. You'll only be able to get it "close enough" with the available plugins for custom login screens.

    The register page picks up your theme. You will need to add a couple more styles (#content-wide for one) to your stylesheet to tweak it further.

    There's a custom registration form plugin out there that rewrites the entire login page... Can't remember the name of it off the top of my head, though.

    I know I have it somewhere on my work computer...but I'm at home today.

    I use Theme My Login

    Theme My Profile works well too.

    The one I was thinking of was the James Kelly one, but read this thread. It appears that Theme My Login is an update of that one, and the James Kelly site is hack-o-riffic these days.

    Anyone know how to set the priority for theme-my-login? I have it set so that the user can enter their own password but this get dumped in favor of the wordpress generated password.... makes for a bit of confusion.
