Are you fed up with little square grey boxes saying "login" and then "logout" on your Joomla site. Here's how to liven up your login box.
1) Make 2 little graphics – one saying "login" and one saying "logout". 70 pixels wide and 20 pixels high is a nice size. Upload them to the /images folder as login.gif and logout.gif
2) Go to /language/english.php and replace DEFINE('_BUTTON_LOGIN','Login'); with DEFINE('_BUTTON_LOGIN',''); and also replace DEFINE('_BUTTON_LOGOUT','Logout'); with DEFINE('_BUTTON_LOGOUT','Logout'); This means no text will sit on top of your images.
3) Upload the new mod_login.php to your /modules folder. Click here to download it . If your files are png or jpg instead of login.gif, search the code and update with the new extension.
And you're done! 3 simple steps to a livelier site.
