One such detail is the look of the WordPress editing page. Companies and clients often have a request to modify the form of the sign-in page so that at first glance the company logo, colors, photos or other information are visible.
The importance of your own logo in the administration may seem unnecessary to experienced users. But if we look at the whole situation from the other side, the WordPress logo for the general user may be unnecessarily confusing - he is in the administration of his website, so why should he see the logo of the content management system, which redirects him to a foreign page? By clicking on the WP logo, the user gets to the official page of the content management system.
Fortunately, behind WordPress, there is a huge developer community, creating countless clever extensions, , that can be handy with editing. We'll show you an edit using one of these plug-ins.
LoginPress, really detailed settings for the login page
The free Custom Login Page Customizer | LoginPress offers a wide range of settings to help tailor your login page. LoginPress enables easy editing of the logo, page background, login form, password forgetting forms, changing the shape of buttons, adding welcome messages, changing footers and fonts.
Developers have gone even further and added the reCAPTCHA renowned feature that enhances web security. reCAPTCHA will not allow login unless the user correctly writes the code from the image.
To install and set up the plug-in, proceed as follows:
- Navigate to the WordPress content management system administration and select „Plugins“> „Plugins installation“.
