How to use the Flexible Frontend Login shortcode on your site
On the widget settings page choose the Flexible Frontend Login and adjust the settings to your site.
In a post or page place
By default the shortcode uses the settings set on the admin options page
You can override those default values with the following parameters and options:
So your shortcode might look like this:
[flexible-frontend-login vertical=bottom horizontal=left]
If you want to use the centered login form with darkened overlay in the background
[flexible-frontend-login-modal] without any parameters.
How to use the Flexible Frontend Login template tag on your site
In template files place:
<?php if ( function_exists('flexible_frontend_login') ) flexible_frontend_login( 'bottom', 'left' ); ?>
To change popups behavior you can use
- “bottom” or “top”
- “left” or “right”
For popup with overlay use:
<?php if ( function_exists('flexible_frontend_login_modal') ) flexible_frontend_login_modal(); ?>
