Redirecting after login or signup

To redirect a user back to their current page after login or sign up, add the referrer={{current URL}} query string to the login or sign up page URL, where {{current URL}} is the URL of the page the user is currently on. You can also use the [wpwa_referrer] shortcode to handle this dynamically.

Every form and input includes a unique id you can hook into for styling. Additionally, form element categories also include shared classes you can use to easily style like elements in a consistent way.

  • .wpwebapp-form-label - Form labels
  • .wpwebapp-form-input - Text inputs
  • .wpwebaspp-form-password - Password inputs
  • .wpwebapp-form-button - Form buttons and input[type="submit"]
