  • Component set to Core
  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 1.2.6
  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

well, I guess with the release of WP 3.0 it is really time know to get a Login-page and also a Logout-page for BuddyPress which is customizable in terms of Logo and colors.

Too much for a point release, but worth looking into for 1.3.

Anybody want to take this on? I'd imagine that the easiest technique will be to grab all of the requests for wp-login.php and redirect them back to the home page, bringing along all of the redirect arguments and possibly using some template notices around the login box to inform about errors.

Or, instead of this kind of hack, someone could submit a patch to WP core that would make wp-login.php a themeable file :)

Since it would also unintentionally make the WordPress registration page more customisable, Would Nacin's ticket being resolved mean that we can remove and/or hide (backcompat) the BP Registration page? Why and/or Why Not?

If their is still a benefit to having our own registration page, then wouldn't having our own login page template get the same benefits?

I've been playing around with making a login template that functions similar to the registration component, i think for it to be perfect though, we need atleast #WP20279

I don't think redirecting login requests to the homepage is the best option, as some users wont want the login form on the homepage. (eg. thoes with BP as an addon instead of the main feature - eg. wpcandy.com would look lame (personal opinion) with their login form on the homepage)

  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Going to close this in favor of the WordPress ticket, as skinning wp-login.php is really outside the bounds of what BP should be doing. (This is doubly so now that bp-default is no longer supported, so we're out of the straightforward theming business.)
