Step 1 – Create a New Page
The first step is to create a new page on your WordPress website. You should provide a name for your new page, for example, ‘Login Page’.
Step 2 – Edit with Elementor
Now you need to click on the button, ‘Edit with Elementor’. From this point, go to the Elementor settings and then set the page layout as Elementor Canvas.
Step 3 – Add 2 Column
Now you can add a 2 column layout to the page. You can click on the ‘Add Template’ icon and select the two columns layout.
Step 4 – Add Image
Add the image widget to the left column and select an image to act as a point of interest for your login page.
Step 5 – Heading
Now you can add a heading on the right column. Now look for the login widget from the options. Make sure that you see a ‘PP’ icon at the top right corner of the widget. You can drag and drop this into the right location on the page.
You can customize the login elements on your page. For example, you can enable/disable labels and choose a custom label for your website’s login page. You can also enable a ‘Remember Me’ function.
You can make several changes to the button text as well.
There is an option to enable the reCAPTCHA authentication on the form too. This is important, but you will need to add the API keys in the integration settings of the PowerPack.
There are also options to add social login to the website. You can allow access using Google and Facebook. Social logins improve customer usage, and so can be a really useful option for those brands looking to allow customers to create an account on the website.
