How to check if your current page is the wp-login.php page

I realized this morning that my TMM Maintenance Mode WordPress plugin had a bug that was causing the wp-login.php page to be inaccessible. The solution was to write a simple function that checks whether or not we’re currently on a login page, and then add a call to that function in my code. Here’s the function:

function is_login_page() {
    return in_array($GLOBALS['pagenow'], array('wp-login.php', 'wp-register.php'));

From there, I called “is_login_page()” in my code. You can see the before-and-after code update on Github here.

Now I’m able to access my login page! *and there was much rejoicing*

Is this helpful?


Many thanks to Bainternet for this solution.
