First, you must create your own logo on your computer with a graphic editing program such as Photoshop or Gimp. Keep in mind it should be 328 pixels wide by 84 pixels high at 72 ppi(pixels per inch). I’ve included a template which you can use to ensure your custom logo fits properly.
To find the template, you’ll need FTP access to your server, or you can download the plugin to your computer rather than installing it directly through WordPress. There are two files. One is called login_logo.psd which is a multi-layered Photoshop file. The other is called login_logo.png which is a transparent PNG. Either can be used as a template.
Your custom logo must be saved as a transparent PNG named “login_logo.png”, and must be placed in your current theme’s images directory.
You’ll need access to the file structure on your server in order to place your custom logo in the correct place.
I hope that helps!
i have done as you stipulated. the WordPress logo is gone but my logo is not appearing.
Could you send me the URL of your login page? If so, I could take a look and try to help you troubleshoot. If you don’t want to post it publicly, you can send it privately via email at http://middleearmedia.com
Also, please double check the location and name of the logo file. It should look just like the following example with your actual domain name substituted for YourDomainName.com and your current theme name substituted for YourTheme.
Some WordPress themes have multiple levels of sub directory structure. Make sure the /images directory is located in your theme’s main directory, and not a sub directory. If not, just create your own.
thank you. i copied the image into the corect directory and it works fine now 🙂
