Redirect failed login attempts to any location

Adding this snippet to the functions.php or your wordpress theme will allow you to redirect failed login attempts to any location.

 

 

add_action( 'wp_login_failed', 'my_front_end_login_fail' );
function my_front_end_login_fail( $username ) {
$referrer = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
if ( !empty($referrer) && !strstr($referrer,'wp-login') && !strstr($referrer,'wp-admin') ) {
wp_redirect( $referrer . '?login=failed' );
exit;
}
}
