Create functional User Login forms

User Login Action is a JetFormBuilder addon using the standard authorization method. Thanks to it, you’ll be able to identify registered users and allow them to log into the system. To go the extra mile, use the Remember Me capability and secure cookie function.

User Login is a fit-for-purpose addon, which will work smoothly for e-commerce, membership, multivendor directory, and other website types. Link every form field to the corresponding function parameter and place the form on the Login page.

How to Configure User Login Action

How to set up

Go to JetFormBuilder > Addons and find the “User Login Action” addon in the All Available Addons section to install the addon. Press the “Install Addon” button and, once installed, it will appear on Your Installed Addons. Next, click “Activate Addon” to get it ready for further work.

As you can see, all PRO version add-ons can be easily installed and activated via JetFormBuilder Dashboard.

After you finish installing and activating the plugin, a new action called “User Login” will appear in the Post Submit Actions section.

User Login Action Settings

Navigate to JetFormBuilder > Forms and open the created Login form of yours. If you do not have any, create one. Open the Post Submit Actions section in the right sidebar, press the “New Action” button, and pick the “User Login” option in the drop-down list.

Click on the edit button with a pencil-shaped icon, and you will see the Edit Action window. Let’s go over the User Login addon’s settings.

  • User Login Field. In this drop-down select, you need to pick the associated login field of the form you are editing;
  • User Password Field. Pick here the corresponding password field of the current form;
  • Remember Field. This field works best with the Checkbox Field block. It allows you to add a frontend functionality that remembers user credentials and keeps the user logged in for 14 days in a row;
  • Whether to use secure cookie. If your website runs on the HTTPS protocol, enable this toggle for secure authorization. If you use HTTP, please ignore this option.

Once you’re done, hit the “Update” button and refresh the form. Please note that the Login User post-submit action does not imply redirecting the user to another page afterward. If you wish to add a redirect feature, make sure to set up the Redirect to Page action.

Tip: By default, the User Login Action addon offers no redirect feature. If you want to redirect the user to a specific page (e.g., user profile or account page) after they log in successfully, make sure to set up another JetFormBuilder post-submit action called Redirect to Page.
