Tagged: custom login password protection
I built a custom template file for password protected pages via the standard wordpress password protection.
The idea is to have an easy option to create multiple login-pages with different images, headlines and descriptions.
To do so, I found everything to get started and to apply the custom login page inside this forum.
But after login to a password protected page, the header and the sidebar appear twice (please see Screenshot attached to private content)
Now I cannot figure out how to change my template file to prevent the doubled header and sidebar.
My idea is, it might be possible to change position of the if-else-function inside my template to be able to leave out “header and sidebar” in the else part.
But I only have dangerous superficial knowledge in PHP, which is why I ask for help. To make it more easy I uploaded my template to pastebin.
What happens if you comment out get_header() and get_footer() ?
//get_header(); <?php //get_footer(); ?>
easy answer: the whole template breaks up.
The forum tells me to use the page.php as an boilerplate for my individualized template.
The problem has to do with the else-part of the if-else-function.
I think the doubled parts might be caused by “<?php the_content(); ?>.
The positioning of the if-else-function might be the problem?
May you assist?
