    Hi Josh,
    I really got to say that you plug in is great. Thank you.
    But after installing v3.01 I am not so excited by it.
    I know you have rewritten it but it has lost the look that i was able to achieve with version 2.0
    I liked the way i was able to change the login background and the full header across the top of the admin screen.
    Is there anyway that i can reproduce this in version 3?
    thanks
    j

    Yes i agree with Jerel. (and great plugin Josh)

    But, apart from the inconvenience of changing ALL those PSDs (there are so many because i really like the plugin and used it on ALL my WordPress sites), its the fact that it doesnt look nearly as nice as V2 did, being able to create a background for the whole login area, not just the logo.

    And then as Jerel mentioned, also the full header in the admin area - that was the best, and provided a really slick admin area for clients.

    Oh, AND i loved the login screen preview in v2!

    i think im switching back to v2 for now

    PS: also the upload buttons dont seem to work in v3

    I'm also getting the same problem with the image upload buttons in v3. Means I'm unable to change the images and try out this new version.

    Hope this is fixed soon because I loved version 2!

    I am also holding off on this upgrade unless I see an extreme need that it fixes something.

    My current concern is that the plugin says it is 3.0.1 but the header code says 3.0.2

    I have updated the plugin with some bug fixes so the current version (3.0.3) should work. I also re-uploaded version 2 if you would like to downgrade. I won't be supporting that version but it will be there for you to use if you prefer.

    Josh, where did you post the old version?

    ***EDIT, sorry found it in the Other Versions section. My bad.

    I tried to upgrade to 3.0.1 but it lost all of my settings and The options were so different that I couldn't get it back to the way it was so I had to downgrade. Very disappointing.

    I know this is kind of an old thread, but I wanted to second the others' opinions. Fantastic plugin, but I also strongly prefer version 2. Josh, thank you very much for keeping that version available.
