Just read a great article at 40horse.com on creating a custom ExpressionEngine2 Login Screen so decided to have a quick update to my own login screen. It is slightly frivolous as only I will ever see it hopefully but every little bit helps.
I edited the login.css found inside the main themes folder /default/css themes/
font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Arial, Helvetica, Geneva, sans-serif;
Changed the main image:
padding: 260px 20px 5px 20px;
margin: 20px auto 0 auto;
background: url('/images/illustration.png') no-repeat center top;
Changed the submit button colour:
padding: 7px 16px 9px 16px;
And added some shape to the form element.
border-top: 1px solid #999999;
Simple, quick and easy way to add a bit of pazzaz to a site. I have known about editing the login screen for a long time but was one of those things I had never tried so thanks to Josh Hopkins for the prompt!
