Custom Login Pro

custom-login-pro-featured-1024x682

WordPress Custom Login Pro is a plugin that gives you full control of your wp-login.php page. Create unlimited designs using WordPress’ native custom post types! That’s right, save as many different designs as you like, or just use one and done.

Custom Login Pro comes with four default “posts” known as designs. Each post allows you to upload your own images and set your custom CSS in the content body.

There is a free version found in the WordPress plugin repository as well as a Pro version. The Pro version is its own plugin, meaning it will deactivate Custom Login upon activation.

It also removes all default WordPress style sheets from the login screen which are hooked into login_enqueue_scripts (which the free version doesn’t) and it writes the CSS to a file which allows the page to load the design without having to access the database.

  1. I narrowed my choice down to ‘white label cms’ and ‘White Label Branding’.
    My client has several employees working within the cms on a daily basis to update content and therefore I need to define which menu items to show up based on user role (editor etc.).
    Which of the two would be better suited for that task in your opinion?
