Add a WordPress Sidebar Login Quickly & Easily with WP User Control
WP User Control is a WordPress plugin that adds an AJAX powered WordPress sidebar login widget. The WP User Control widget can be quickly and easily added to a widget area on your WordPress powered site. The WP User Control widget allows users to login, register, or reset their password. Each of these activities can be performed without requiring the user to leave their current page. WP User Control handles all errors gracefully and intercepts all redirects to standard WordPress login pages. WP User Control even enables you to set a custom URL to which all login requests will be redirected. This prevents users from ever being sent to the standard WordPress login pages. WP User Control supports both WordPress MultiSite (WPMS) and standard WordPress installations and has been internationalized with numerous language translations available.
After downloading and activating the WP User Control plugin, go to Appearance -> Widgets and drag the WP User Control widget to your widget area. Once the WP User Control widget has been added to your widget area, either save the default options or follow these configuration instructions to customize.
