I use Wishlist Member for most of the membership sites I build. It’s the most stable platform within wordpress that I’ve found, with the most options. It’s been around for years (I posted this originally in 2013) and has a great developer community. There are tutorials for pretty much anything you want to do with it. For full blown membership sites where you expect a lot (200 or more) members, I prefer Kajabi.
While there are a lot of tutorials on how to use Wishlist, one particular area was overlooked. All I wanted to do was create a stand alone Wishlist Member login page. I didn’t want to use the login widget. Just a straight page like domain.com/login – how hard should that be?
This isn’t covered in any of the training videos by Wishlist Member and I couldn’t find it in any of the support documentation either, which is a shame, because I think many people who have Wishlist Member installed would want to use it…
Turns out it’s freakishly simple. All you do is add the shortcode:
To whatever page on which you want a login form. Yep, it’s that simple! It’s not in the documentation and I had to trawl through the code to find it.
It used to be in their documentation, but I’m guessing it was accidentally deleted in one of the updates. This is one of the more popular posts on this site. I’m glad to have been able to save some hair follicles.
