Custom Login Screen

  1. Franz Josef Kaiser


    One major thing about most people are complaining is the login screen.

    They all need
    1) Custom Registration fields
    - can be done with functions and add_action
    + better would be when the profile fields are easy to modify and have an option to be set to the login/registration/pass screen (incl. mandatory)
    2) Integrate with their site
    - currently we are loading login.css & colors-xy.css
    + good would be an is_login() conditional tag for your functions.php; this way you can add stuff there without knowing about core hooks like admin_page; there are some examples on how this can be done;
    + better would be if the login page is a "protected auto-existing" page (not deleteable and if not registered, added to the db on init, simply one function; therefore it would be themeable, which would just be: (one word) GREAT!

    The first step (styling) is done since a half year and (here we are: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12506) no one cares. I already made and tested a patch. Could be re-tested and added.

    This is especially true when you don't want your new subscribers to see the open seams in your site. When building brand recognition it's vital to present your website as a custom built operation instead of "just another wordpress blog".

    Btw: I made a "test purpose" plugin and posted in on github/gist: https://gist.github.com/671743

    In case someone wants to jump in for developing a 3.x compatible stylesheet: contact me. Thanks!

    Additional info: The plugin allows you to add the login.css stylesheet to (order by priority) your a) Child Theme b) Parent Theme c) Plugin Directory.
