The default password reset page and even The login page of any WordPress website Is quite boring it looks vanilla all the Website looks the same when it comes to The login on the password reset page and There's no customization options so that You can match your branding on your Website to the login pages and the Password reset Pages well all that Changes today because in this video I'm Going to show you exactly how to Customize and change those login pages So you can customize and add your Branding to those pages on your website Let's go so let's talk about the Simplest way we can customize these Pages on our WordPress website and of Course I'm talking about using a plugin Design for this specific purpose so Let's go to my website I'll go to the Plugin section I'll go to add new to add A new plugin to my site and then the Plugin search options I'll search for a Plugin called theme my login so I'll Just type it in My login And this is the plugin we will be Installing it looks like a chameleon I Hope it's a chameleon so this is the Identifier that you can instantly notice That this is the plugin we'll be using Let's install the plugin And the plug is installed let's also Activate it

Another plugin is activated we can head Over to the settings by going into the Settings option right here or going to Theme in my login and theme my login and Go to the journal settings here so Inside the plugin settings you have Plenty of options you can configure or Even the registration process you can Force users to use their username only Email only or let the settings be at the Default values all these settings are Something that you can configure on your Own depending on how you want the Behavior to be on the login and Registration pages but the thing that we Are concerned with is these options Which is these slugs so what are these Pages already created or what is this Options so what this plugin does is Automatically update change or I say Modify or customize the dashboard page The login logout register loss password And the reset password pages on your Website automatically so all of this has Already been done you don't need to Customize them if you just want the Styling to be matching with your theme Styling let me demonstrate I'll just Copy the login page URL and then open up An incognito window right of course Because I am not I don't want to be Logged in I'll just open up the login Page for this site And insert the default WordPress login

Page you see this page which is matching My theme styling which is the default Theme in WordPress but you can instantly See that hey this is not the regular WordPress login page it's matching the Style of my theme and this is what the Plugin does I can match or I can open up Any of the other Pages as well let's say The lost password page I'll copy this And I'll just go back here I'll Open this page up and the last password Page also looks like my theme styling or The theme styling is inherited already On this page so all of this is Automatically done now all you have to Do is let's say if you want to change The URLs anywhere on your site just copy And paste these URLs let's say you want To change or add the lost password URL To somewhere as a button on the header Footer that's completely up to you if You just want to have this theme styling Match but what about additional Customization options let's say you want To customize any of these Pages a little Extra or add some additional elements on The page well you can do that as well Let me demonstrate how that works so There are two things that you need to Keep in mind or let's say three things First you need to create a new page on The site of course so I'll go to the Pages section I'll create a new page And I'll add configure two different

Options on the page the first is the URL Or the permalink of the page so keep in Mind that right now we're configuring The lost password page the URL has to be The loss password URL has to match this URL which we see here so I'll just copy This for Simplicity I'll go to the page first I'll add a Title say lost password You can keep the title of the page Anything you like but the URL has to Match so I'll go to the URL section just Keep in mind I'm using the latest Version of WordPress in this uh 6.1 and Above the URL section is under the page Options but in the previous versions of WordPress you have a permalink section Or permlink entry here so make sure to Find it at the appropriate Place click It and what I'm going to do is just Change the url or perm link of this to Lost password because this is one of the Requirements of the plugin that this URL And this slug has to match otherwise it Won't work right so this is done now What I can do is or what I need to do is Add a short code to the page as well so I'll just type in the shortcode option For adding the shortcode block and I'll Just type in a shortcode which is very Simple to remember it's the name of the Plugin theme Hyphen my login so theme my login Separate bifens space

Action Equals to quotes open the same slug that We used lost password I just pasted in Double quotes closed and also square Brackets closed simple to understand Let's publish this post publish And the page is live let's copy the URL Let's go back to the old Incognito I've Closed this window let's open one more Incognitive window let's paste it and I'll just resize the window once more And now you see that this page has been Customized but you might notice that This is the exact same page as you saw Earlier because of course I haven't Added any customization options on the Page for demonstration so let me close This window once again and just to give An example of what you could do with This plugin is you have complete control Over the page all you can do inside the Block editor that's the only requirement Only limitation you have anything that You can do in the block header you can Customize on this page so just to give An example of what you can do I'll just Add an image on the page so that I can Just demonstrate how it reflects or how It works right so I'm just going to add The image block here And I believe I already have one image Uploaded as a random image let me select That image I'll update the post So right now or anything or everything

On the page is exactly the same except For this image let's open up another Incognito window I'll resize it first Let me open that up And now you see the lost password page Has the same fields that we were just Looking at earlier and also the image so It's that easy to customize your pages With this plugin of course you are Limited by some of the limitations of The block editor but still you have much More control than the default WordPress Settings which doesn't give you any Options at all right you have the Default WordPress logo so that's how you Customize the password reset page but You of course any of these Pages you Want to customize just follow same rules Make sure the slug matches from the slug Add the shortcode and then you are free To change anything that you like but of Course this is not giving you complete Control and if you want complete control You want to design the page exactly how You want it there's another way as well Which I'm going to discuss right now Let's talk about that so let's talk About the second method you can utilize To completely transform how your login Pages registration pages and even the Password reset Pages look on new website Of course we'll be using a plugin again This time but this time we'll be using a Different plugin called WP forms WP
