    This isn’t working for me. I know it’s been 4 years since this post was published, and I’m limited in my CSS knowledge, but I did folllow the directions. It causes my site to “ is not working”

    It works correctly the first time (in the original site) but when I migrate the wordpress the logo is missing. I do not know why, the URL is correct. I noticed in the code a “display:none !important”, in the original site this display:none doesn’t exist. I tried with CSS something like “display:bock !important; but it doesn’t work.

    Original site

    This site is the same but is not showing the logo

    Thank you.

    Personally I like the Theme my login plugin better. It gives you a widget for the sidebar which is awesome.

    There is a way easier way if you are uncomfortable messing with your functions.php file. You can download the plugin login-logo. Once installed and activated all you need to do then is upload your desired logo (a .png with a clear background works best) to your sites main folder through your FTP and It will appear the next time you access your to login.
