Remove login_footer Back to Site Link (13 posts)

    I want to remove the return to site link in the WordPress Login screen. I believe that can be done with an action or filter, but I have not been successful yet. Ideas?

    NB Checking code here at the moment: http://lab.yukei.net/wp-code/nav.html?wp-includes/default-filters.php.source.html

    Seems that there is one hook for login_footer, but that there is no real action that ads the footer link leading back to the home page. I found the code here on line 133 of wp-login.php:

    function login_footer($input_id = '') {
    	?>
    	<p id="backtoblog"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/" title="<?php esc_attr_e('Are you lost?') ?>"><?php printf(__('← Back to %s'), get_bloginfo('title', 'display' )); ?></a></p>
    	</div>
    
    <?php if ( !empty($input_id) ) : ?>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    try{document.getElementById('<?php echo $input_id; ?>').focus();}catch(e){}
    if(typeof wpOnload=='function')wpOnload();
    </script>
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    <?php do_action('login_footer'); ?>

    Main snippet I do not want to load and will probably hide with CSS as I do not see another way is:

    <p id="backtoblog"><a>/" title="<?php esc_attr_e('Are you lost?') ?>"><?php printf(__('← Back to %s'), get_bloginfo('title', 'display' )); ?></a></p>

    Added CSS to my Custom Login Plugin Custom CSS box:

    .login #nav a, .login #backtoblog a {color:white !important;}
    .login #nav a:hover, .login #backtoblog a:hover {color:white !important;}

    This until I find a way to not load or replace the earlier mentioned back home link on the login screen

    Hi, I want to remove the "back to" link as well, but I don't want to use the custom Login plugin. Can you tell me what .css file I should put those two styles in?

    I couldn't hide the "Back To" link without also hiding the "Lost Your Password" link.

    Never edit WordPress core files!

    Okey doke, I edited my post that had my "resolution".

    But after hours of research, I couldn't get it done any other way. I did save the original as a backup, in case it didn't work or broke something. But everything checked out smoothly.

    I read about why core files should never be edited, and I appreciate your warning. I have saved the original file, and when I need to upgrade WP, I will re-upload it. Thanks.
