This section lets you, the user, select your page of choice to login. Again please create this page before you set it up from User Meta Pro settings. To complete this settings, edit the selected page and put [user-meta-login] where you want the login form to show up!

The following checkbox will let you use the cool new login page you’ve just created. To let all registered users of your site use the custom made login page instead of the default login page (wp-login).
