As discussed here.
Grab the Site Logo and set that as the logo on the login screen.
That would be lightweight enough (no extra functionality), while also being beneficial for businesses (regardless of whether they have developers or not).
I like this idea. Very simple and would be a really useful feature.
pieter, on the forums, suggested that the image be hyperlinked to the homepage, which would be a good enhancement of this.
I think that would be good as well!
Note that, in the current implementation, this is more than changing the image URL; the logo is a background image in an anchor tag, so it must be appropriately sized via CSS for the given logo image, or it produces unexpected results.
Yes please! Never understood why this was not a core feature long ago.
This is a good idea, but it should probably be a checkbox somewhere in settings that is turned off by default.
Agree. This would be a nice feature.

Thanks for that @James Nylen. Upvoted.
Yes please! Set site logo as login screen logo; hyperlinked to site homepage; turned off by default. I also would go for the option to remove the "Lost your password?" and "Back to <website>" links at the bottom. (I have a little plugin i made for all those, plus customising login page css.)
This is not a major change, and it's already clear that it would solve a common use case.
If you are a developer who can help us implement this change, head over to https://github.com/ClassicPress/ClassicPress and submit a pull request.
I agree this is a great idea! If we do that, could we also possibly add CSS and background customization for the login screen as well?
Hi Sean, something we've learned along the way as we've been using this petitions site is that it's important to keep petitions small and well-scoped and try not to change them too much from the poster's original intent.
So, suggestions that are separate from the original petition should go in a separate petition. However, customizing the login screen CSS and background is already possible in ClassicPress today with no extra changes: just go to Appearance > Customize and use the "Additional CSS" section. Here is an example CSS snippet to get you started: https://forums.classicpress.net/t/customize-login-page/737/18
Under the 'site logo automatically appears on login page' scenario, what happens with sites that don't have a logo, but are using text as site identifier? Does the CP logo then get displayed as it currently does?
Good point Ray - yes, the ClassicPress logo should be displayed in this case, and it would also be good to add a warning next to the option (or disable it and explain why it's disabled).
Love it - so simple :-)
Have submitted a PR for this. Let's see how that goes. Check it out https://github.com/ClassicPress/ClassicPress/pull/424/
Excellent starting point!
Let's plan to finish that PR and get this change into the next release of ClassicPress, due sometime in June or July.
> This is a good idea, but it should probably be a checkbox somewhere in settings that is turned off by default.
This. Anything that requires database queries and potentially will 404 resources (the vast majority of new sites would not configure this immediately) should be off by default to avoid issues. And minimal CSS involved :)
Update: this was merged in https://github.com/ClassicPress/ClassicPress/pull/486, released in version 1.1.0-rc1, and will be reverted (will not ship in 1.1.0 final). See discussion starting here: https://forums.classicpress.net/t/classicpress-1-1-0-rc1-release-notes/1582/18
We can't use the site's Custom Logo for this because not all themes support it. So we plan to add a new image setting for this purpose instead, for a future 1.x version. The current code will remain available and development can proceed on this branch: https://github.com/ClassicPress/ClassicPress/tree/feature/login-image
