Best WordPress Login/Registration Plugins & Widgets
Here I open up the catalogue and one by one you’ll go through every plugin I found researching to help you meet requirements for your side.
#1 Modal Login Register Forgotten WordPress Plugin
It’s a premium solution to what you’re looking for. Rather than redirecting users to a login page, it opens up in a pop-up form using which login and registration can be done pretty easily.
It let you provide a unique platform for these two important gateways and also you can change their design layouts to any extent. You can get your hands-on by paying $14 for it.
#2 Peter’s Login Redirect
If you don’t wish new users of your website to check on different sections of Dashboard area then this plugin can help you with its simple mechanism. Once a user logins you can set which page he will be redirected and the same can be done when he logouts. Since it’s a free plugin so there is nothing in your way to using it, but you need to decide which pages you wish your users to access.
#3 Pie Register
It brings a bundle of tools which you can use your website by simply installing it over your WordPress driven website. It will let you create a custom login page, change the whole look and scenario, bring in different registration levels and a lot more. You can use its shortcodes and widgets for further help.
You can even put invitation code using only which a person can register for an account. You can even put a charge over registration with the help of option provided by this plugin. I can bet you’ll find it really worthy and, above all, you need not pay anything for any of its features.
#4 Login Ninja
If you really care for the safety of your website then this is the plugin that can protect it better than no other. Login Ninja is a premium solution that is capable of protecting login and register pages of your website from hacking attacks. It can even prevent the secure gate from Brute-Force attacks.
Since it’s a premium product so you can think of getting support to help you get it setup and also learn how to use it at its best. It’s the best solution we got after Limit Login Attempts plugin became outdated.
#5 Social Login
This plugin does what its name simply says. It puts in links to common social profiles using which users can simply click and login with any of them. A user can register as well using the same social profiles. I hope this is the simplest way you can offer to them who are ready to register.
#6 Clef Two-Factor Authentication
Install this plugin on WordPress website and similarly install its app on either Android or iOS running device. Once the installation is done on both sides then after a simple setup, login page of your website is secured with a very unique and authenticate way.
Whenever you wish to login, move on to login page which will display a ‘Clef Wave’. Similar wave is there on your smartphone which you need to run through its app. Once both waves are there, then simply synchronize them and you’ll get one hour of access. A user can increase this time of access through the option provided in the app. I hope this is one of the simple way to increase the security level. Find it on your own.
#7 New User Approve
This is another plugin that can help you deal with increasing security with a simple mechanism. Whenever new users are registered with an account on your website then they aren’t provided the access directly.
Rather this plugin will put them in a loop unless you approve all those new users. Only once you had approved them, then they will be able to access.
#8 Uber Login Logo
This one is a pretty simple as it only does one simple thing. If you don’t wish to see WordPress logo over the login page and wish to replace it with any other custom one then it can help you do the same. And that too via its simple tools. You don’t need to pay anything for it.
#9 WordPress Custom Login Theme Page
If above one wasn’t powerful enough then this plugin can help you change the whole login/registration page of your WordPress website. You can change the whole background, logo, color and even put in other useful and related links over the old page which doesn’t look that branded. It simply does whatever I had told you, but it comes with a price.
#10 Tabbed Login Widget
As the name suggests, it simply puts in a login, registration and password forget forms through a widget which you can fix anywhere on sidebar or in the footer. This is a simple widget that can be added to offer the same gateway solution but in a unique way.
So the quest is over and I hope you found more options to choose among than you had earlier thought of. Do help your fellow bloggers by sharing this catalogue to them because that’s what blogging all about. SHARING, isn’t it?
