The login screen of WordPress has its logo on it. Just below are the fields where we enter our WordPress username and password. The wordpress login logo on the login screen makes the login look a little whacky so why not change the wordpress login logo to your own blog logo. It would make your blog look a lot more brandable and professional.
Yes, it is possible with just a few simple steps.
Changing WordPress Login Logo
Just have a look at the wordpress login screen. Navigate to http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php . The initials needed to start with this tutorial is just your website logo. As the logo needs to fit into the space provided, the logo needs to be edited to the following dimensions :
- 70 Pixels height
- 130 Pixels width
To make the wordpress login screen look more professional modify logo to *.gif format and make it’s background transparent.
Login to your cPanel or FTP , whatever’s handy. I prefer FTP . Browse to wp-admin/images and search for logo-login.gif . For security reasons, download it on your computer. Now upload the logo-login.gif file of your blog’s logo and replace the file already placed on the wp-admin/images. Refresh the directories and flush your blog’s cache if you are using one.
Now, navigate to your blog’s wordpress login screen which might be at : http://www.yoursite.com/wp-login.php .
Voila, your blog’s live is placed where the WordPress logo used to come.
