Using the WordPress Login Screen Branding Feature

This option will allow you to use Thrive Architect and some of its options in order to customize the login screen of your site.

This option can come in handy if you are looking for a way to visually edit the login screen and you want the login page to look different than the regular WordPress login form:

Where to Find the WordPress Login Screen Branding Feature

In order to access the option, in your WordPress admin dashboard, in the left sidebar, click on “Thrive Dashboard”:

Here, scroll down to get to the “Thrive Features” sections. Look for the “WordPress Login Screen Branding” card, and click on “Manage Login Screen”:

How to Use the Feature

Once opened, you will be taken to a page where you will have to activate the option if you want to use it.

Thus, if you are looking for a way to visually edit the login screen, activate this option, and you will be able to take over the default WordPress design:

To activate it, click on this switch:

When you do this, two more options will be available for you: “View” and “Edit with Thrive Architect”:


If you click on “View”, a preview of the login form will open in a new tab, so that you can see how it looks like from a user’s perspective.

Edit with Thrive Architect

This option is the one with the help of which you will be able to customize the form. If you click on it, the form will open in the Thrive Architect editor, in a new tab.

Customize the WordPress Login Page Element

After the Thrive Architect editor opens, you will notice that the “WordPress Login Page” will be customizable.

Choose a Template

When the editor first loads, a pop-up will open, and you can scroll down to see all of the available templates. When you find one that you like, click on it, to select it:

The template will then be applied.

  • Reset template

If you want to reset the design of the template, click on this button, from the right sidebar:

The design will go back to its initial look.

  • Change Template

Moreover, you can change the template, by clicking on the cloud icon from the right sidebar:

By doing so, the pop-up with the templates will open again. Look for a template that you want to use instead of the old one, click on it, to select and apply it.

Besides changing the template, you will be able to edit both the characteristics of the page, as well as the options of the form.

Customize the page

Firstly, you can customize some general options for the entire page. For this, all you have to do is click anywhere outside the form, on the editor. Some options will appear in the left sidebar:

We have created separate articles about all of these options, so please check them out here, if you need to see how to use them.

As an example, I will change the background color for the login page into a darker one. For that, I can use the “Background Style” section:

Customize the Login Form

Besides the way the entire page looks, you can also modify the login form. All you have to do is click on the items inside the form, and their options will appear in the left sidebar:

You’re also able to do some editing on the form input, form labels, buttons, and all of the items that you might want to appear in the login form.

When you finish editing the entire page, click on the green “Save Work” button from the lower left side of the editor:

Now, each time someone wants to log in to your site, the login page will look different than the regular default WordPress one.

Revert to the Default Login Page

If you ever want to go back and use the default login page, all you have to do is go to the WordPress Login Screen Branding card from the Thrive Dashboard, and deactivate this switch:

This is how you can use the “WordPress Login Screen Branding” feature in order to create a unique looking login page for your site.
