Hey, Do you wanna know how I usually figure out whether a website is using WordPress..?
Well, its pretty easy I just check for their /wp-admin/ page. And there you can see it clearly “WordPress” logo stating it all.
Most of us ignore to do any customizing to the WordPress login screen as we believe that its the page that only we will be viewing. However that’s not true all the time. Especially if you allow guest posting in your blog ( which almost everyone is doing these days ) at some point your guest blogger will be viewing your wordpress login page. So don’t you that think it would be better if you could show up your brand logo there..? After all whether its a company or a person blogging, your brand is your identity. It gives a more professional touch to your website.
Anyhow I had recently started doing this kind of customization in all my sites and also developed a simple plugin, My WordPress Login Logo for doing it the easy way. My WordPress Login Logo is a plugin which lets you to add a custom logo in your wordpress login page instead of the usual wordpress logo. It also allow you to edit the logo size and change the link the image is having (by default it points to wordpress.com).
So here is how you do it.
- Get the My WordPress Login Logo from the WordPress Plugins (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/my-wp-login-logo/) and install it.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Upload your desired logo using the WordPress media uploader.
- Copy the uploaded image’s File URL path and input it in the Logo URL field.
That’s it! You can now logout and check your yousite.com/wp-admin/ page to see the changes. The plugin also allows you to specify your logo size and link.
By the way this is my first plugin contribution to wordpress plugins directory. So share and rate it well, hehe 😉
