Not seeing a way for my members to login

I have got to be blind (or maybe not very bright), but I can not find anything that tells me how I am supposed to allow my members to login to their membership.

Any help?

    Hey there! :slight_smile:

    They can use the standard WordPress method:

    domain.com/wp-login.php

    Or you might use a theme feature (like we have here at WPMU Dev) or plugin to handle the login.

    If you don't mind getting you hands a little dirty then you could quickly code something in with this function:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_login_form

    Thats if you want it done somewhere specific in your theme.

    Not tested any of these but:

    Hope this helps :slight_smile:

    Hey Timothy,

    First thanks for the quick reply. I actually wasn't expecting to hear from anyone until tomorrow or the next day! That's awesome.

    I actually found that I could have a user login through the WP login after I posted the question. My problem is that, when I click on the user name in the top right corner on the admin bar, it takes them to a modified WP dashboard. Also, I can't seem to log the user out.

    Not sure what you mean by this: "Or you might use a theme feature (like we have here at WPMU Dev) or plugin to handle the login"

    I'm not sure what you mean by "theme feature." And is there a plugin on WPMU Dev that can be used or where would I find one?

    The coding thing is out. I am as curious a monkey as they come and while I love to learn how to do things that I don't know how to do, I have also had to learn to NOT learn things that I don't need to know. No matter how crazy it drives me.

    I was referring to using a log in form like we have on the top of the site :slight_smile:

    Timothy, Never mind. I got it now. Thanks for the help.
