Adding Your Own Logo To The WordPress Login Page

On your login page you will have probably seen the WordPress banner, just above the login fields, a million times. You may not have paid that much attention to it but I will go out on a limb and wager that you have thought, at least once, whether it would be possible to replace it.

Replacing that banner with one of your own is actually incredibly easy.

1. Get your banner and shrink it to 310 x 70 (I guess you can use any size but this is the size of the WordPress banner).

2. Open up your FTP client and go to wp-admin → images → and find logo-login.gif.

3. Replace that file with your own image, don’t forget to call your image logo-login.gif.

4. That’s it. You should now see your chosen banner on the login page now.

Let me know if this works for you by commenting below, it will help prove to other people it works. I have a image below of my two main blogs login pages to prove I did it. I did two different styles. 🙂

  • I like this. A nice, plugin-free way to do it. I may just use this tutorial!!



    • Glad you liked it. I actually came up with this after reading a post on another blog about 2 other ways to do it.

      Their first way was to do it with a plugin and the other way was to edit very important files and insert lines of code.

      Why? The way I have shown is much easier and won’t damage any files or slow your blog down with another plugin running. 🙂

  • Oh i am same like you, i am anti plugin too, when we can stuff manually.

    But plugin makes things easier i know.

    This is a cool tip, might try it..branding on backend is somehow important for multi author sites, thanks for the tut, Dean.

  • And when you say “Go to wp-admin → images → and find logo-login.gif.” you mean in your ftp client?
