1. Hello,
    I’m sorry to trouble you, but I have a problem. To today I used WP blog Version 4.2.8. This plugin worked OK. Now I upgraded WP to 4.3.1, and the plugin has stopped working. Simply it does not creates needed widget. Please can you give me some help or advice?

    Thank you

  2. Hi,

    For translators:

    Rename the .mo and .po files to sblogin-**_**.po or mo and copy to I18n directory.

    Example: for French: sblogin-fr_FR.po and sblogin-fr_FR.mo

    Best Wishes,

    Thanks for a very nice plugin. I’m using version 2.13 og the plugin on WP 3.8.1, and I have a small problem.

    The %userid% did not Work for me, so even though it’s a bad idea, I edited the plugin with the code below, to allow loginname to be used instead (please note that I’m completely new at PHP).

    One thing that I have used a lot of time to solve, but keeps teasing me: I would like the loginname/username to be in ucwords format, but no matter what I change, it keeps being all upper case(including the “WELCOME”). How do I fix this ?

    if (empty($thewelcome))
    if ((strpos(get_option(‘sidebarlogin_welcome_heading’) , ‘%loginname%’)) !== false)
    $thewelcome = str_replace(‘%loginname%’,ucwords($current_user->user_login),get_option(‘sidebarlogin_welcome_heading’)) ;
    $thewelcome = str_replace(‘%username%’,ucwords($current_user->display_name),get_option(‘sidebarlogin_welcome_heading’)); }

  4. Hi Pankaj Jha, someone asked you the same above but maybe you didn’t see it. I have the same question, how can I resize the picture after the login? (avatar)

    It’s too small, I’d like it a little bigger . Thanks!

  5. Hi!
    I just updated to WP3.8 and I start getting “blockui requires jquery v1.2.3 or later you are using v1.10.2”.. Ruling out all plugins, it points me to the WP Sidebar Login plugin. I’m running version 2.13.. Is there a way I could fix this?
    Thanks in advance!

  6. is there any documentation for shortcodes? Also, you say “You will find a config page in tools/settings > WP Sidebar Login. Here you can set links and redirects up” but I can’t seem to find this.

  7. The plugin no longer works with the recent version of WP. It has to to with jquery.
    -blockUI requires jQuery v1.2.3 or later! You are using v1.10.2-

    • I updated to the sidebar login to Version 2.12, but I still get the error message.

      “error 3.6 blockUI requires jQuery v1.2.3 or later”

  8. Hello,

  9. hello Pankaj
    I Have installed your wp-sidebar plugin. it is redirect to wp-admin section when the user or pass is incorrect .please tell me how to solve it..?

  10. Coud you help me?
    1) How can I adjust the width of the login / password form?
    2) Is there a way to move the whole content of the widget a bit more to the right? You’ll see the problem on the right side on the website.

    Thank you in advance.

  11. after 3.4.2 update , i can’t login with ‘wordpress social login’ plugin if i use popup social media login window , ‘wp sidebar login’ plugin blocks loging in , ajax updates plugin’s screen but it says please enter username and password to login,and i can’t simply login.
    if i already logged in ,both of plugins works successfully.

    • Hi,
      ‘wp sidebar login’ is tested with WordPress 3.4.2 may be some problem with ‘wordpress social login’. Can you deactivate the social login plugin and test the WP Sidebar login once again.

      • i updated sidebar login plugin,deactivated and activated both plugins but looks like the problem isnt’ solved ,both plugin works succesufully except when i use social login’s popup window(if i already logged in, also,there’s no problem), maybe the problem is with social login plugin or could be a security issue(i read wordpress 3.4.2 has security updates).
        anyway i’ll use both plugins without popup window for now.
        thanks for your support.

  12. Thank you all to support my plugin. This sidebar login is one of the best plugin which enable user’s to login wordpress site from any page without redirect and ajax load.

    In next release I will try to address all the related issues and most demanded features.

  13. Hi,
    I´m trying to use your plugin, but it gives me the next message.
    Could you please help me?

    • Hi Patricia, thanks to post this bug. I am working on this to replicate this bug so that I can fix this asap… will get back soon.

    • I am working on all these request, in the next release most probably I will able to incorporate all these changes.

      Add < ?php sidebarlogin(); ?> in your template to appear the Sidebar Login in your WordPress Site.

  14. Pankaj:

    1) Where is the “Registration” information stored?
    2) Can we automatically send a Greeting/Thank you along with the Password?
    3) Is the E-mail Address entered in “Registration confirmed as a Valid Address?
    4) Can we customize “Login” and “Register for this Site” to include our Company Name?
    5) How do we cause someone to have to Register before he or she can select Pages other than Home?

    Thank you,

    • Hi George below my answer point wise –
      1) “Registration” information stored in the same table which is used by the WordPress itself. I am not going to create any extra table.
      2) Currently no – but in coming future I will say Yes !
      3) Is same as WordPress default do, so whats ever setting you do in WordPress General and Discussion setting that will word.
      4) Please do all the customization in your default WordPress setting.
      5) Currently this feature is not available, but this will be a great future on the need basis for few Login restricted sites so this will be in my feature enhancement list.

    Hi. can you tell me how to translate the plugin with the pot? I don´t know the right location and/or filename

  16. Hello there,
    just a short question: I figured out that you deliver an pot file with this plugin. But where to put the translation and what must be the filename and the format? I tried to add it as “de_DE.po” and mo and as an addition to the original name “-de_DE.pp” and mo. Both don´t work. Please tell me the trick 😉

    • Hi! I have the same problem.
      I created the files es_ES.po and es_ES.mo but the result is not translated.
      I created the files from the file. pot with PoEdit.
      Can you help me, please? Thanks!

    • Hi,

      Rename the files to sblogin-de_DE.po and sblogin-de_DE.mo. Copy to the directory where the pot file is located.

      Best Regards,

    Nice plugin..
    i used this plugin to all my sites..this plugin is worked very nice..
    i have one question..if i add social login to sidebar..

  18. Hi There,

    I just installed the plugin and the login is added to my sidebar. is there a way for me to add social logins to the sidebar?

    Please let me know


  19. Hi Pankaj,

    first of all: Thanks for this Plugin!

    I have one or two issues, though.

    If I place it in the WP header by using the template tag “sidebarlogin()”, no error messages are shown. When sending the form with erraneous or no credentials it redirects to the WP backend login which I would like to avoid.

    Using the widget works fine. But I need to place the login in the Header section for design reasons.

    Maybe – and hopefully – you can help?

    When Anyone resister here and when he/she received mail from here…then it show ” wordpress” not my website name….how I can change it…that show my website name? Please help me

  21. I just install your plugin via the WP add new admin area. It looks as though it installs it twice. But it is just listing it twice. If I try to delete the extra listing they both go away.

    Here is a screen shot

    Is it possible to adjust the layout once logged in? The bullets overlap with the avatar. Aligning the avatar to the right would work.

    • Hey sp,
      Thanks for inform about the bug. I fixed the issue every thing is fine now. Delete the existing one and install again sidebar login will be fine ..
