Support » Fixing WordPress » Accessibility issue: change login_headertitle to login_headertext since WP 5.2.0

  • Resolved sleeplessinDC


    I can’t tell if this PHP Notice is directed to WordPress core, themes, or login plugins.

    login_headertitle is deprecated since version 5.2.0! Use login_headertext instead. Usage of the title attribute on the login logo is not recommended for accessibility reasons. Use the link text instead. in /wp-includes/functions.php on line 4711

    This sounds like a theme issue. What theme are you using? When was it last updated?



    It does not sound like a theme issue since themes are not supposed to do anything with the login screen. It sounds more like a plugin that is changing how the login screen looks.

    I agree with @joyously, but to answer the question by @sterndata, I am using the Aaron theme version 4.1 — last updated on May 8, 2019.

    The PHP Notice doesn’t identify what it is directed to but if it is directed to a plugin, it might be the Custom Login Page Customizer, version 2.0.1 I am using, which was updated a week ago and says it was tested up to WP 5.2.

    Please attempt to disable all plugins, and use one of the default (Twenty*) themes. If the problem goes away, enable them one by one to identify the source of your troubles.

    If you can install plugins, install “Health Check”: On the troubleshooting tab, you can click the button to disable all plugins and change the theme for you, while you’re still logged in, without affecting normal visitors to your site. You can then use its admin bar menu to turn on/off plugins and themes one at a time.

    I’ve reported the problem to the Custom Login Page Customizer developers and they thanked me for the report and have added it their development log. Hopefully it will be fixed in their next update.

    I’m using s2member and that’s how I’ve changed my screen image. When I deactivate it goes away, even if I change it to WP logo. I’ll take it up with s2member.
