    I would like to customize the login and register pages with my site's header, background etc. What is the best way? Should I edit the wp-login page, or is there a way to add a login page to my theme?

    copy the pert data out of the login page, then paste it into a new php file located in the wordpress directory....

    customize away!

    direct hyperlinks to new login

    poof- new login page!

    Muhammad Haris' pages are great, but they default to wp-login if the username/password entered is incorrect. That's been my only trouble with them.

    If you're using the latest WordPress (2.5.1 as of this post), I've created a patch for wp-login.php that adds support for custom login pages and makes theming your login / registration page quite simple. http://stilldesigning.com/2008/05/01/custom-login-page-for-wordpress/ is my blog post about it (hey, this is a WordPress forum, right? ;) ) and a link to the Trac ticket where you can find the patch and sample login.php file.
