1. Using snippets

If you’re a fan of customization, I hope you already have a plugin to insert code snippets to your website. Personally, I’ve been using Simple Custom CSS and JS on a couple of my blogs, which lets you add custom codes dynamically.

Adding CSS

I am assuming you have the mentioned plugin or any other source to insert the code into your site, open it up from “Dashboard > Custom CSS & JS > Add Custom CSS”

Copy the CSS code given below, and paste it in the box, choose the location where it will be applied from the right sidebar menu, ‘On Login Page’.

Create a folder in the root directory with the name of the ‘CustomLogin’, open it up. Inside the folder, create ‘Customlogin.css’ and Insert all the CSS code given below.

Now, after saving the file, navigate to your WordPress “Dashboard > Appearance > Theme Editor”. It’s even better if you’re having any child theme so the new code snippet stays without overwriting any old functions.

Add the PHP code snippet at the bottom of the ‘Functions.php’ file, and click ‘Update File’.
