Login With AJAX is a WordPress plugin for enhancing the login and registration experience on your WordPress site and is available for free on WordPress.org. It was was created by Marcus Sykes and first released in 2009, this was his first of many plugins freely developed and released on WordPress.
The plugin was created out of necessity to allow logging into WordPress without having to refresh a full website page on each login attempt. In 2009, that was particularly important given servers were less powerful and internet connections were significantly slower than these days.
This became a labour of love and enjoyment for creating WordPress plugins. Sharing with others to help them build better websites is an important goal as well and remains part of our mission. The plugin has remained free, maintained and supported for the past 13+ years, going through multiple updates and three major revisions with no donations or financial sponsorship.
Due to the rising popularity of the plugin, the amount of time required to provide support and maintain the plugin accordingly has required a larger investment of time. Therefore, a decision was made to provide a premium add-on, Login With AJAX Pro, which was released in early 2022 enables us to continue providing free support and updates whilst also catering to the large demand for new features and premium support.
If you find the free version useful, and have used it for some time, consider going Pro! We hope you will find great value in that alone, and in all cases you'll know you're helping keep a high-quality plugin free and maintained on wordpress.org for use on any of your websites.
