Is LoginPress Compatible with WordPress.com?

If you are hosting your site at WordPress.com and intend to use LoginPress, to beautify its login page. You are on the right page!

LoginPress is a WordPress login plugin that customizes the default login page of a WordPress website i.e. wp-login.php. It uplifts the default WordPress login page to modify the basic and boring look.

Being rich in customization options, it does not only style your WordPress login pages but provides security features as well. 

LoginPress & WordPress.com Compatibility 

By default, LoginPress isn't compatible with the WordPress.com hosting because LoginPress uses the WordPress default login page i.e: /wp-login.php. On the other hand, WordPress.com has its own login page structure which that is different than the default one.

WordPress.com adds its own custom scripts to the login page of WordPress.

The custom form asks the user to either log in with a conventional login by using their credentials i.e. email/username and password or by using a WordPress.com account.

The page is not controlled or managed by LoginPress as it has a totally different structure than the default login page of WordPress.

How Can I Use LoginPress with WordPress.com? 

LoginPress can work with WordPress.com. As it styles the custom form of WordPress.com, the problem occurs in the customizer of LoginPress. It makes the form inaccessible resulting in not showing real-time customizations.

Since the sites on WordPress.com enable the option of  “Allow users to log in to this site using WordPress.com accounts” by default. It is used to bridge the settings made by WordPress.com for the custom login form which shows on the front end. 

This setting is referred to as Secure Sign-On. You need to disable this setting which will allow LoginPress to customize the login page.

You can find these settings on My Site > Settings > Security

WordPress.com log in

Note: Once the customization is done, you can enable the option of  “Allow users to log in to this site using WordPress.com accounts”. It will not affect the customization changes made by LoginPress, to your login page. 

That’s it! LoginPress Compatible with WordPress.com. You are good to go to keep using LoginPress at your site hosted on WordPress.com
