I have no login tab on my home page?

I know I can go to wp-login.php but I can't tell people to enter that in the address bar. So how do I get something on my home a person can click on that takes them to the login page.

    Hello there Mike,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    There are a lot of ways to do that and add a link to your menu or sidebar for people to login.

    One of the easiest way is to provide a sidebar login widget :http://mikejolley.com/projects/sidebar-login-for-wordpress/

    You can use the above plugin and see if that meets your requirement.

    If you want to manually add a link to your menu, you can do that via Appearance >> Menus and add a custom link pointing to your login page.

    If you want to do this using custom code, the below code can help you add a menu link dynamically. Just put the below code in your theme's functions.php file.

    add_filter('wp_nav_menu_items', 'add_login_logout_link', 10, 2);
    function add_login_logout_link($items, $args) {
            $loginoutlink = ob_get_contents();
            $items .= '<li>'. $loginoutlink .'</li>';
        return $items;

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC
