Customizing the Design of the WordPress Integration Login Page
After discussion with the WA team, it appears that for websites powered by WordPress, there is currently no way to customize the single sign-on screen once a user chooses to log in via the Wild Apricot plugin functionality. The page as it is now is devoid of almost any styling (screenshot from the WA video example attached), and particularly in the case of websites with a prominent design, in my opinion this takes away from the user experience, making the login process a lot less "seamless" than it otherwise could be (if the option to customize the page look and feel with CSS, etc. were available). Hopefully this option will be available soon.

We have fixed this issue and implemented a ton more with our new suite of plugins. Wild Apricot Press is in beta.
Have a look. You will be amazed.

This is really poor user experience, we need to have customization ability...
Hmmm... Oauth page customization on backlog for 5 years (Dec 2015 issue raised)? Agree with all comments below... we are customers for many years and migrating website to Wordpress (keeping everything else - forms, CRM, email, etc. on Wild Apricot) and the login integration is very disappointing. Even better than a customizable page would be the ability to embed login widget in an iframe (with some parent/child js to make that functionality result in login at parent page level). This was also mentioned below (drop down login - Jan 2019)
I agree. We are new customers and am disappointed on how this integrates into WordPress, especially for the price we are paying. It does not flow into the pre-existing website and is not as plug-n-play as advertised. We had to hire a programmer to custom code the PHP.
Alternatively I would love the ability to (easily) avoid going to a separate page altogether. Much like WC has on their own end, offering a drop down login form would be extremely efficient and would also be aesthetically pleasing.

A registration button on this page would be a lifesaver. It's a dead end with out one in the case of first time users.
Integrating the Wordpress Plugin into our site we find that many of the pages allow the dump of an iframe for a users membership account into our site template which gives the perception of a seamless integration.
Unfortunately if you need to reset your password or do any other number of "pre-login" changes to your membership account, the user is sent to Wild Apricot template pages. This breaks the integration model and essentially exposes the backend software running the sites membership engine. We sure could use a fix for this.

Would love to have this option! It would make the user experience nicer.

Allow custom templating/styling for the OAuth single sign on page for a more seamless user experience

It would be really nice to have this feature because the unstyled version detracts from the website templates that we put so much effort into creating on both the WordPress side and the WildApricot side.

i agree. i think if you can use the login page widget/design for the SSO sign in that will be great as well. Right now it just looks too plain and feels out of place.
Agree absolutely - the plain login page is completely inappropriate to a stylish WP site. Kind of defeats the purpose of plugging into WP.
