I've to create a new template for login page, but I don't understand how made it. I create a new class MyMemberLoginForm that extend MemberLoginForm and, but don't works.

Into class; Iwrite only declaration, because I don't add any new fields or overriding function.

class MyMemberLoginForm extends MemberLoginForm {


Then Into config file , I add Object::useCustomClass('MemberLoginForm', 'MyMemberLoginForm ');

How are the right steps?

Thank you
