    Great post, especially for a novice like me. I am also looking for one and struggling with the selection
    To make selection little bit easy, can we indicate the presence/absence of following features to the plugins?

    1. Login
    2. Logout
    3. Registration
    4. Forget username/password
    5. Access control
    6. Integration of Social Sites
    7. etc.

      For this you can use 4 or 11 number plugin.

  • Raj says:

    Hi Istiak, how many of these plugins have registration form along with login? And also how many of these are responsive?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      All of them have registration form with login option and they are responsive.

  • danieliser says:

    Would like to suggest Popup Maker (free) with the AJAX Login Modals extension (https://wppopupmaker.com/extensions/ajax-login-modals/). With Popup Maker you can completely customize the style, position, size and every aspect of your popups in minutes with no code required.

    Add in AJAX Login Modals extension and you can create responsive Login, Registration and Recovery Modals in no time. Additionally you can use it’s Force Login option to block users from accessing pages without logging in, make it your own with customizable templates, and in the latest version integrate it automagically with WP Members or Profile Builder plugins to create custom registration forms that will still work with AJAX submit out of the box.

    Email me for any questions or an affiliate account for links.

  • Priscilla Smith says:

    Hi,

    I have a dealers page on my website and would only like this specific page (dealers) to have a login page. So ONLY dealers and see the page. Does a plugin for this exist?

    Hope you understand my question.
    Thank you for your help,
    Priscilla

    • @Priscilla – Are you looking for a plugin that can put a login prompt up on a specific page that can’t be closed until they log in?

      If so look at Popup Maker and the AJAX Login Modals extension. Popup Maker offers page level targeting and can be customized to match any site quickly. The extension allows forcing login on any targeted pages.

      One issue I see is that none of these will allow you to set up for the dealer user role, assuming that you have users that are not dealers. In which case you would maybe use something that hides the page content if you are not a member of a specific user role. There are many plugins out there that can do this.

      Hope that helps.
