    After upgrading to 3.3 My brand login has stopped working and I'm back to the original WordPress white screen login screen. Any fix for this?

    For me also... it is like it starts to load (I can see the background color, in my case, red) but soon appears the normal WP Login: white bg and normal logo.

    I don't think the guys who created this plugin are maintaining it any more. I posted a message on their site which hasn't been moderated yet and their most recent blog postings are from July. I think we may have to look for something else. These guys don't seem to be around anymore. The least they could do is say that so people aren't waiting around for support.

    Well, I can understand that plugins are made by volunteers, and maybe they have something more important right now. Anyway I think you are right and I will search for a replacement! ;)

    After doing some digging around I'm coming up with a solution that will allow us to customize the login page without using a plugin or editing core WordPress files which would be overridden every time WordPress is updated.

    First let's use a custom logo. This is done in 2 steps:

    Step 1:

    Upload the logo you want into the "images" folder within the theme folder, example:
    wp-content/themes/default/images/logo-login.gif

    Step 2:

    Add the following code to your functions.php file (the one in your theme):

    add_action("login_head", "my_login_head");
    function my_login_head() {
    	echo "
    	<style>
    	body.login #login h1 a {
    		background: url('".get_bloginfo('template_url')."/images/logo-login.gif') no-repeat scroll center top transparent;
    		height: 90px;
    		width: 400px;
    	}
    	</style>
    	";
    }

    You may have to adjust the width and height to fit your logo. If the alignment of your logo isn't correct just adjust height or width in the above code until it's the way you want it.

    ***I'd like to thank Andy Potanin who posted this previously in another thread. Thank him not me :)

    Now, I'm trying to change the background color, link colors etc of the login page using a similar solution. I'll post it when I get it.

    The best thing is that a plugin isn't needed so the solution is permanent :)
