How to Add Login Widget with LoginPress

By default, WordPress doesn’t offer a Login Widget. So what's the solution here if you really need one?

You can use a Login Widget to create an additional login area that enables users to login into your WordPress site. It increases visits to your sites and boosts retention for your online blogs, products, and more.

LoginPress premium has the Login Widget Add-on. This Add-on adds a widget in your blog or products sidebar. It uses Ajax to help users login via the sidebar while reading your blog.  LoginPress offers basic styling to the Login Widget, but you may uplift the style according to your site if you know HTML/CSS.
