[resolved] HiDPI login logo (9 posts)

    Thanks for the excellent plugin!

    I'm having troubles getting the login logo to be HiDPI. I've created the images in both normal and @2x and I'm not sure what do do next as I have a few options.

    I have a Woothemes theme, and there's a built in method to upload a new login logo. With this method if I upload the retina image, it's too big, and if I upload the normal it's blurry. This method does upload to the media library, and seem to be too small to generate retina versions (though I'd rather it not anyways since I made my own).

    The other method I know a little about is overwriting the core logo file, which (I assume) will be overwritten at some point during a future wordpress update.

    Thoughts on how to do this properly?

    You're welcome ^^

    Logo are a bit tricky depending on how the themes are handling them. If I were you, I would upload the normal logo to your theme. Then I would check where the file is actually uploaded, and I would myself upload (through FTP) the corresponding @2x file myself.

    That way it would work "forever", through the updates and everything :)

    Thanks for the super-fast response!

    Hm, so far this isn't working, there has to be something more to it.

    The WooFramework in it's branding section uploads it to the media area, I added the @2x named file (where other hidpi images are working fine), reloaded in a few browsers and it's not working.

    Any other ideas?

    Mmm, what I told you to do what really the way to do it in my opinion. Of course I have never used WooFramework so I cannot tell for sure, but it should be.

    Well, are you interested in hire me? Sounds like a simple issue to me and I would be okay to charge your less than what I do usually. You can contact me through here: http://www.totorotimes.com/about/

    I appreciate your efforts.

    For now I'll pursue theme support as I think it's something related between the two.

    Logos are something specific, with a non-standard WP size. For me, it is part of the theme, more specifically your theme (after you adapted it to your taste). In that sense, both the theme and the retina plugin are working fine. The user has to work on the final design (the core design and logos).

    Update: no resolution

    WooThemes says it's a plugin issue.

    I've tracked the image to it's location:

    When I add the @2x image to the same directory, no joy:

    If I add the @2x image directly, it's simply twice as big. Is it possible to add some custom css tied to the @2x image and make it 1/2 the size? I know it's crude, but I don't have any other solutions... If so, where?

    #logo img {

    Like I said, you can hire me. If it's a plugin issue, you will be fully reimbursed and I am really serious about that :) Just think about it.

    I'm a smart guy, I'm sure I'll figure it out. And when I do, I'll sell you the answer. :-)
