Here’s an easy way to make your own custom login page for WordPress! Takes 10 min tops, if you know the look you want.
Its a simple idea that makes this administrative task so much easier for an active site. This little WordPress plugin is great!
About the plugin from the Binary Moon page:
BM Custom Login is a plugin I developed to give people an easy way to add a custom WordPress login screen to their WordPress powered blogs. The idea of the plugin is to ease WP upgrading since you will not need to repeatedly make the same changes; this is particularly useful when working with clients. The download contains the plugin and a handy little login screen Photoshop kit to speed up development of your own screens.
All you have to do is use the Photoshop template to create your custom image. Then you upload the new image to the appropriate plugin sub-directory. That’s it! Presto-change-o, your new login page is now active and upgrade proof. Simple, elegant, easy. What more can you ask for?
While I don’t use the plugin for this blog (I’m the only one that logs in here!), I do use it for other WordPress installs that are interactive with clients. Its a very nice, easy to use addition to make your WP site look that much more refined.
Fantastic job Ben!
