    how do I authenticate a log in page in Wordpress?

    I have a page in my website that will allow users to log in and I must authenticate it by connecting to the database.

    how would I go about doing this for this page in Wordpress?


    thank you

    Maybe you want to ask this in a wordpress-oriented forum? Many of us here only know PHP and do not use WP

    PS - If you're posting here you should be using:

    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    ini_set('display_errors', '1');


    at the top of ALL php code while you develop it!

    Hello,
    While going for enhancing authentication of your login page, the first advice is to revise and edit the core files. Overwrite those files while updating Wordpress.

    Another thing is, update the Wordpress version in a timely manner as WP security updates often come.

    Other than this, I want to recommend to go for "hooks" which is the best way to edit. Go for Login_form action hook and use the authenticate filter to verify your user.
