Hi Simple Press team


Could I please get some help on how I could get rid of the default simple press login form. I am using a login and registration plugin and no longer need anything under 'Advanced search' text


Second question - How do I remove 'Welcome back John. Please log in to post" after John visits the forum page a second time (This is even though he is not logged in yet as simple press uses cookies).


Thanks heaps

Sorry forgot the third question - I would like the users to navigate to URL when they click Login and navigate to URL when they click Register. How could I provide different URLs for login and register buttons at the top please?

if you dont want the login form, just remove it from your sp theme... we of course, advise a child theme or custom theme for modifications...

It varies from theme, but you would want to remove this template call:


from your sp theme, likely in the spHead.php template file...  that wont remove the login/logout button though... you would remove it by this template call

            sp_LogInOutButton('tagClass=spButton spRight', __sp('Log In'), __sp('Log Out'), __sp('Log in and log out'));

which is also where you could change the login and logout links (where they point to)... see:

similarly, you can change where the register button points to: 

            sp_RegisterButton('tagClass=spButton spRight', __sp('Register'), __sp('Register'));
