Support » Fixing WordPress » Customize the Login Screen

  • Resolved MarcJeremy


    I’m relatively new to all this, so I’m not even sure if this is possible, but is there any way to customize the login/register/ Log Password screens to use your theme and, more specifically, change the WordPress logo to my sites logo. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

  • I’ve never done this myself, but, I suppose one could alter some of the HTML markup and the stylesheet references in wp-login.php, that would be the markup between <html> and </html>. There’s some raw function code in there not between HTML markup (sorry to the programmers for my poor terminology), so, caution is warranted. Also, if I was going to do this, I’d keep a backup file of your changes somewhere, as well as the original, unchanged file, since a mistake on your part or an update to WordPress could overwrite the file and (I’m guessing here) cause login and/or other site issues.

    MJ, you may want to take a look at this thread:

    it can be done very nicely, MarcJeremy, All my login, registration, lost password pages are customized, and once logged in, the blog menu even refreshes to show you that it worked. I use 2 pages for each actually, on for js enabled browsers, one for non-js.

    If you want to see what I mean, its

    the css you need to play with is inside wp-admin.css

    The main page refreshing once logged in took a little bit of creativeness but think it makes for a very nice effect (if youre using a js enabled browser).

    Thanks for the help everyone. I’m finding it all useful. Of course, now the fun really begins!
