    very interesting.
    the branding plugins I’ve tried don’t always work with child themes and when the WP installation is in a subfolder.
    this is much more flexible

    Nice hack. It is very useful when you customize wordpress login page with client logo and corporate colors.

    Nice and simple!
    I will point out for you that the way you impliment this hack is good due to the fact your adding this to the functions file of your template, so core upgrades won’t effect or erase the changes.
    A differnt route you can take is using plugins that do this exact thing.
    I made one called ‘My Brand Login‘ that customizes your Login/Registration page and Admin panel via a slick options page.
    Anyways good work….

    Great! Although there are some plugins for customizations, it’s really good to know how to customize the back end yourself. Bookmarked. Thanks!

    We’ve been branding the login page for our clients ever since we came across your article! To be honest, clients love the branding touch to it even though it’s just a simple step. Thanks for this mate!

    The tutorial is beyond my expectation. Now it’s become quite easy to modify and customize the wordpress login page. I am looking for some great wordpress login page designs. Will you care to post some beautiful and creative login page designs?

    First Off, BIG THANK YOU for this code. And Please correct the code, it looks good but it doesn’t work.

    For example:

    php
    function custom_login() {
    echo ‘wplogin/wplogin.css” />’;
    }
    add_action(‘login_head’, ‘custom_login’);
    ?>

    Specially this line
    echo ‘wplogin/wplogin.css” />’;

    I tried but the code did not work.
