Customize Your WordPress Login Page

Do you want to customize your WordPress login page? It’s easy to do, and you can make it look just the way you want. There’s no plugin needed and it will only involves few tweaks in your login page.

In this post, I’ll show you how to change the WP login page logo, color scheme, and more. So let’s get started!

Step 1. Locate CSS File

First, we need to locate where the CSS file for the login page. Take note that if you’re using a caching plugin, the file may be different.

To locate where the CSS files of the login page are, go to your wp-admin or wp-login page and then right click on the background and click inspect.

Look for CSS Files Login Page

 

Right click on login.min.css and click copy location. Paste it on other tab and you will see a compressed CSS file like this:

Compressed CSS

We will be using a compressed CSS in this tutorial.

Now the file we need to edit is:

https://easyrocketstudio.com/wp-admin/css/login.min.css?ver=6.0

Step 2. Change the Background

Now that you found where the CSS file is located, login to your web hosting or ftp and go to your file manager. For those who are using cPanel, go to File Manager > public_html > wp-admin. The same goes for your accessing your web hosting’s file manager via ftp.

For other hosting providers, you can check their knowledge base on how to access wp-admin directory.

Edit login.min.css. Look for

background: #f0f0f1;

and change it with

background:url(https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2015/04/23/22/00/tree-736885_960_720.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed;background-size:auto;-webkit-background-size: cover;-moz-background-size:cover;-o-background-size: cover;

It will then look like this:

Change Background Login

Step 3. Change the WordPress Logo

Let’s change WordPress logo into your logo of your choice. If you happen to have a logo of your own, you can use that.

In my case, I can just look for something neat and a little bit of sporty. I found this logo on Pixabay that looks like a a fierce racoon.

Raccoon
Looks like a great badge for a sports jersey.

Now let’s find where the logo is hiding, I mean hibernating.

Just right click the WordPress logo and inspect element. You will find it in the CSS file login.min.css. Locate login h1 a and find the rule:

background-image:none,url(../images/wordpress-logo.svg?ver=20131107)

Replace ../images/wordpress-logo.svg?ver=20131107 with your logo:

background-image:none,url(https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/01/31/23/42/animal-2028258_960_720.png)

And now this is how it looks like:

Step 4. Customize the Form

Since I like the glass design so much, I’d like to turn the form into glass using glassmorphism. If you’re not familiar with glassmorphism, it’s a visual style that combines the smoothness of glass with the fluidity of molten glass.

I’ve developed an HTML template base on glassmorphism and bootstrap. You can check it out here.

Moving over, let’s find the selector login form and look for it’s attribute.

In an uncompressed CSS file, it will look like this:

.login form {
margin-top: 20px;
margin-left: 0;
padding: 26px 24px 34px;
font-weight: 400;
overflow: hidden;
background: #fff;
border: 1px solid #c3c4c7;
box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,.04);
}

First remove

background: #fff;
border: 1px solid #c3c4c7;
box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,.04);

and add the glassmorphism CSS code.

Uncompressed

backdrop-filter: blur(16px) saturate(180%);
-webkit-backdrop-filter: blur(16px) saturate(180%);
background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.75);
border-radius: 12px;
border: 1px solid rgba(209, 213, 219, 0.3)

Compressed

backdrop-filter:blur(16px) saturate(180%);-webkit-backdrop-filter:blur(16px) saturate(180%);background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.75);border-radius:12px; border:1px solid rgba(209, 213, 219, 0.3)

Next, we’ll enlarge the login form a little bit.

Find .login * and remove padding: 0;

Finally, we’ll enhance the color and weight of Lost your password? and ← Go to Easy Rocket Studio.

To do that find .login #nav a.

Change the color attribute value to #ffffff and add

font-weight: bold;

This will now the login page looks like:

Enhance Login Form with Glassmorphism

Step 5. Login Button Customization and Enhancement

The login button may need some customization since it is a bit off. We’ll make bigger and attractive.

To do that we need to edit some attributes.

Inspect the element of the button and you’ll see .login .button-primary.

Login Button WordPress

Now go back to login.min.css. Remove the float:right attribute and change it to:

border-radius:8px;border:1px solid rgba(255,255,255,0.2);backdrop-filter:blur(20px);color: rgba(255,255,255,0.8);font-size: 16px;letter-spacing:2px;text-transform:uppercase;box-shadow:0 1px 1px rgb(18 21 26 / 8%);background-color:#F28123;background-image:linear-gradient(180deg,hsla(0,0%,100%,0.15),hsla(0,0%,100%,0));position:relative;width:100%;margin-top:1.4em;line-height:2.30769231;

The final result looks like this:

Customize Login Page Final Result

Congratulations! You’ve customized your WordPress login page!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is glassmorphism?

Glassmorphism is a visual style that combines the smoothness of glass with the fluidity of molten glass. It is often used in user interfaces, and it can be used to create realistic or abstract glass effects.

The glassmorphism style is achieved by using a combination of transparency, refraction, and reflection. This creates an illusion of depth and movement, as well as a feeling of weightlessness. Glassmorphism can be used to create both static and animated glass effects.

When used in user interfaces, it can help to create a more immersive and intuitive experience. In addition, glassmorphism can be used to create interesting visual effects in art and advertising.
