Login Logo

This plugin allows you to customize the logo on the WordPress login screen. There is zero configuration. You just drop the logo file into your WordPress content directory, named login-logo.png and this plugin takes over.

Note that you should use a transparent background on the PNG image, crop it tightly (no padding pixels) and use a width of exactly 312 pixels for best results. Wider images will be downscaled in modern browsers, but it isn’t recommended to rely on that.

This plugin also works in the mu-plugins directory.

  1. Click here to install and activate.

  2. Create a PNG image with a transparent background, tightly cropped, with a recommended width of 312 pixels.

  3. Upload the PNG image to your WordPress content directory (/wp-content/, by default), and name the file login-logo.png.

  4. If you have a multisite install with more than one network, you can also use login-logo-network-{NETWORK ID}.png to assign a different login logo to each network.

  5. If you have a multisite install, you can also use login-logo-site-{$blog_id}.png to assign a different login logo to each site.

  6. Done! The login screen will now use your logo.


Q. Why does my image look strange in IE or an outdated browser?
A. Your image is probably too wide. Wide images are scaled down in IE 9 or other modern browsers, but not in older browsers. Use an image that is no more than 312 pixels wide.
