#loginform css - 2.5.1 issue (4 posts)

    After wasting a great deal of time, I finally figured out that someone got the css wrong for the login form, I guess....

    Trying to change the background-color from that insipid blue, I finally had to ADD the correct element to the login.css file to get anything to work. Note that there is a #login form rule but that adjusting that one's bg color doesn't work.

    not sure how the color is being added - but for anyone wanting to change the color of just the box containing the username, password and button, add

    #loginform {
    //your color choice here

    into login.css in the wp-admin/css/folder

    If anyone has some enlightenment, I would love to hear it. I even tried various plugins (for example, color scheme) but they didn't work to adjust this either.

    I also am experiencing the cut-off top to submit buttons in IE6 in the login and lostpassword forms, like others have mentioned.

    Has anyone logged this as an issue? Or is there some update to fix all of this?

    Seems like someone would have tested in IE6?

    If you look near the top of the actual login.php you will see this

    wp_admin_css( 'login', true );
    wp_admin_css( 'colors-fresh', true );
    do_action('login_head'); ?>

    I'm not sure if these are standard or version based but regardless, colors-fresh is a css file located in the wp-admin/css directory.

    Look there and you should find mention of the so called "insipid blue" as well as the rest of the wp colors ;)

    Here's to hoping you've figured it out by now (7 months is a long time to go with a color you don't like!)
