Creating a popup login form in Divi can be an effective way to boost the design and user experience of logging in and out of your site. The idea is to create a login form that shows in a popup box whenever the user clicks a login button on the header of the page. This is more convenient that redirecting the user to a custom Login page. Plus, it allows web developers to create a custom design of the login form (at least on the initial front end) which can be a refreshing alternative to the traditional traditional WordPress login experience.
In this tutorial, we are going to create a popup login form with custom login and logout buttons in Divi. Using the Divi Login Module and a couple of button modules, we will create a seamless popup login experience on the front end by allowing users to login and logout without being redirected to a different page.
Granted, this solution is limited to the front-end login form design, which means that any errors that occur (or if the user needs to reset a password) will redirect to the traditional WordPress login form/page design found at “wp-login.php”. However, for those looking for a custom login design on the front-end without having to use a plugin, then this may be the solution for you.
Let’s get started!
Sneak Peek
Here is a quick look at the design we’ll build in this tutorial.
Notice how the login button and logout buttons change respectively. And, once the user logs in, they remain on the current page. Plus the popup login form shows different “warning” content whenever the user attempts to log out.

Part 4: Creating the “Logged Out” and “Logged In” Login Forms
In order to have different content and design for the login form when logging in and logging out, we are going to create two different login form modules. The first will be the login form that will show whenever the user is “logged out”. The second will be the login form that will show whenever the user is “logged in”.
Creating the “Logged Out” Form
To create the “Logged Out” Login Form, add a new login form module under the blurb module icon inside the row.

Open the login module settings and update the following:
Content tab

  • Redirect To The Current Page: YES
  • Use Background Color: NO

Design Tab

  • Fields Background Color: rgba(0,78,67,0.05)

  • Title Font Weight: Semi Bold
  • Title Text Color: #000000
  • Title Line Height: 1.3em

To update the button styles, copy the button styles of the Login Button we created in the third column of the row in the Header section.

Then paste the button styles to the button option group in the Login Settings under the design tab.

  • Button Text Color: #ffffff
  • Button Background Color: #004e43
  • Button Background Color (hover): #00683c
  • Button Border Width: 0px

Then update the sizing options as follows:

  • Width: 100%
  • Max Width: 80% (desktop), 90% (tablet), 95% (phone)
  • Module Alignment: Center

divi popup login form with login/logout buttons
Advanced Tab
Under the Advanced Tab, update the CSS Class and Custom CSS as follows:

  • CSS Class: et-logged-out-form

Custom CSS for Login Description:
width: 100% !important;
float: none !important;
Custom CSS for Login Form:
width: 100% !important;
padding: 0px !important;
This will make sure the login form module spans the full width of the row/column even on desktop.

Creating the “Logged In” Form
Now that the “Logged Out” version of the form is complete, we need to create the “Logged In” version which will have different content and styling to maximize the user experience.
To create the “Logged Out” login form, duplicate the existing login form.
divi popup login form with login/logout buttons
Then update the label for each of the login forms respectively.
Open the settings for the duplicate (the “Logged In” form) and add the Site Title as dynamic content to the Title of the login form module.

Next open the settings for the site title dynamic content and update the before and after content as follows:

  • Before: “You are attempting to log out of “
  • After: “. “

This will create a nice dynamic notification for users attempting to log out of the site.

Then add the following H3 heading to the body:
<h3>Are you sure?</h3>
divi popup login form with login/logout buttons
If you have ever seen the login form module content when logged in, you know that there is a custom message that includes a custom “logout” link. To style this link to look like a button, we need to customize the body link font/text settings as follows:

  • Select the link tab under body text options.
  • Link Font: Work Sans
  • Link Font Weight: Semi Bold
  • Link Font Style: TT
  • Link Text Alignment: center
  • Link Text Color: #ffffff

NOTE: You won’t be able to preview these results until you view the form on a live page.

Under the Advanced tab, update the CSS Class and Custom CSS as follows:

  • CSS Class: et-logged-in-form

Custom CSS for Login Form:
display:none;

Part 5: Adding the Custom Code
To add the custom CSS and JQuery needed for the functionality of the popup login form, create a new code module under the last login form module.
divi popup login form with login/logout buttons
The CSS
Open the code module settings and paste the following CSS to the code box, making sure to wrap the CSS in the necessary style tags.
/* hide popup section */
.et-popup-login {
display: none;
}

/* hide login button when logged in */
.logged-in .et-popup-login-button {
display: none !important;
}

/* hide logout button when logged out */
.et-popup-logout-button {
display: none !important;
}

/* show logout button when logged in */
.logged-in .et-popup-logout-button {
display: inline-block !important;
}

/* hide logged out form when logged in */
.logged-in .et-logged-out-form {
display: none !important;
}

/* hide logged in form when logged out */
.et-logged-in-form {
display: none !important;
}

/* show logged in form when logged in */
.logged-in .et-logged-in-form {
display: block !important;
}

/* style logout link within logged in form */
.et-logged-in-form a {
display: block;
padding: 15px 1em;
border-radius: 8px;
background: #004e43;
max-width: 400px;
margin: 20px auto 0px;
}
.et-toggle-popup {
cursor: pointer;
}

/* show hidden elements in visual builder */
body.et-fb .et-popup-login,
body.et-fb .et-logged-out-form {
display: block !important;
}
body.et-fb .et-popup-login-button {
display: inline-block !important;
}

Notice that the CSS uses the “logged-in” class that is built-in to WordPress in order to hide/show the corresponding login/logout buttons and “logged in”/”logged out” login forms whenever the user is logged in or logged out.
divi popup login form with login/logout buttons
The JQuery
Under the ending style tag, paste the following JQuery making sure to wrap the code in the necessary script tags.
(function ($) {
$(document).ready(function () {
$(“.et-toggle-popup”).click(function (e) {
e.preventDefault();
$(“.et-popup-login”).fadeToggle(500);
});
});
})(jQuery);

This snippet simply toggles the popup section whenever the user clicks any of the three elements with the class “et-toggle-popup” (the login and logout buttons plus the “x” blurb icon).

That’s it!
Don’t forget to save the changes you made on the template in the Theme Builder. Once saved, you can view the results on a live page.
Final Result
Here are the final results on desktop, tablet, and phone.
Notice how the login button and logout button change. And, once the user logs in, the user remains on the current page. Plus, the popup login form shows different “warning” content whenever the user attempts to log out.

Final Thoughts
Hopefully, building this popup login form and the custom login/logout buttons will give you some insight on how to use Divi’s login form in creative ways. Feel free to adjust the design and content of each login form (or buttons) to create a unique login experience on your own website.
I look forward to hearing from you in the comments.
