    Hi,

    I have created a very nice registration form. Dutch langauge, placeholders. Beautiful!

    All well and nice, but I don’t see how to get a similar login form.
    Using the shortcodes there are not many options to control the (Dutch) text or the placeholders…

    I guess I am missing something?

    Hello @lffprop,

    We don’t have built-in way to customize login form. However, You can override the login template by copying it to the yourtheme/user-registration/myaccount/form-login.php

    Steps:
    -> Go to wp-content/plugins/user-registration/templates/myaccount/form-login.php
    -> Copy this file.
    -> Go to wp-content/themes/your-choosen-theme/ and create a folder user-registration and inside this folder create folder myaccount.
    -> Paste the copied form-login.php file here and edit to your requirements. This file will override the plugin’s file.

    Basically, the path to be: yourtheme/user-registration/myaccount/form-login.php

    Regards,

    I have created the yourtheme/user-registration/myaccount folder and edited form-login.php.
    Nothing happened.

    I replaced its contents completely, still nothing happened.

    How come?

    That should work. Note that the yourtheme should be your chosen active theme. And your form-login file path should be your-chosen-theme/user-registration/myaccount/form-login.php For more details follow: https://docs.wpeverest.com/docs/user-registration/template-structure/

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks!

    I would love to say that you’re right, but I don’t see it.
    I have a couple of screen prints to show the folder structure and name, so that you can see that I’m using the correct names & structure (or not…)
    You can find the screenprints here: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AiZg1q2e9vdxhByBKTd05uAOak1k

    I have adapted the form-login.php significantly, just to check whether or not this file is used indeed.
    Once I see that changes in it appear on the website, I will make the modifications the way I like them.

    Thanks for your help.

    Guys, my apologies.

    There was a link to another sign in process. After deactivating that one, it is all working nicely as you said.

    Thanks for your patience and help.
