New WordPress plugin – WP-Custom Logo 1.0

September 21st, 2006 by Martin

Well, it was a day before yesterday I released my first WP plugin named WP-Plugin List 1.0 and today I would like to present you my another new plugin. More simple that one before ;).

Using WP-Custom Logo 1.0 you can replace WP default login/register page logo by placing URL to custom logo you have (in proper size of course ;)). It is done using JavaScript onload event. It is not ideal, because there is small delay. I will try to improve it as soon as possible(I created it because of need for one small project…). Reason for using approach is seamless WP upgrades without any need for backup wp-admin.css or changed wordpress-logo.png.

Configuration is simple as you can see:


General options

  • Path to your custom logo image (empty for original logo)


  • Unzip plugin and upload it to your WordPress plugin directory
  • Activate plugin using WordPress administration interface
  • Configure plugin options using WordPress administration interface(Options->Custom Logo)


Just use :). It is done.


Yes, it took some time, but I just finished new version and it is WordPress 2.7.1 ready :).

Update to 2.1

New rewriten version of this plugin is ready for download. It should support also version prior to 2.5, but it is optimized for 2.6 version. NOTE: this plugin does not work with Turbo(Gears) enabled!

Update to 2.2

Completely rewritten version using my new help WPOL library (acronym stays for WordPress OpenLab which is a company I co-own) with some fixes and improvements e.g. working now on register page.

You can download plugin from an official WordPress repository.

Happy using :)
