Well, this was almost useless as a plugin. Not so user friendly, hey?
Awesome plugin as exactly i wanted, someone gave 1 star i dont know why. But yes it dont have any settings but we can customize!! just go to FAQ page there we go. position, logo, background is basically changeable. If you know better CSS rock it.
Thanks author :D
This plugin is GREAT! The reason that people have problems with it is that it does not provide a "Settings" panel, so if you are not web development savvy then you might have issues. But the instructions are clearly given on the author's website; so unless you are just too lazy to follow some instructions then you really shouldn't have any problems. I wish more people would add reviews for this plugin because it really does the job well. FYI - WordPress installation requires PHP, so how can anyone install WP on their site if they don't already have php on their server? This is a simple 2 step process - 1. Load the images to your website into the same folder(s) as the plugin's sample images. And then 2 - Log into your WP site and edit the file with the name of the images that you uploaded. Just follow the directions on author's website. It is that simple.
There is no settings page. No use of this plugin, as it requires coding to make any changes into its default settings, better we could code our self to make these changes into login page.
Uhhh ... there's no settings screen. Isn't the whole point of downloading this plugin is to create a branded login page VIA A USER INTERFACE? Otherwise I'd go edit the code myself...
Doesn't work. Nuff said.
My only negative comment is that whenever the plugin is updated, it copies over your branded screen with their default "mountains" picture. Just means you have to keep your screen copied somewhere and copy it back into the directory after they update.
All else, EXCELLENT!
A little bit fiddly in terms of customisation, however works as promised. Thanks!
I noticed that there were a lot of 1 star ratings. Reading the description, FAQ and et cetera I thought those were unfair.
The plugin does exactly what it says it will do, exactly how it says it will do it.
TO many people install plugins willy nilly and expect them to do everything perfectly with no user interaction. It is a failing with the WordPress community that they market WordPress as almost "Fire and Forget" and that's just not the case. You MUST read the description of each and every plugin you choose BEFORE you decide to use it.
Yes, this plugin could benefit from a Settings page but the fact that it doesn't have one is no reason to say it sucks or doesn't work.
Anyway... It's actually pretty simple to use, and if you don't change positions or names all you have to do is upload your images to the folders and BAM, you're done. Just as easy as it would be with a Settings page.
If you want to use this plugin, you need a little bit skill about php.
Its very easy to edit your logo, place of the dialogue, etc. Follow the content here : http://brandedlogin.kerrywebster.com/branded-login-screen/faq-how-to/
Thank you so much Kerry Webster. I hope the pro version could be free :)
