Login Screen Changes

The 5.2.1 disallows changes to the login tab or set the information to Log In > sitename WordPress.

Have attempted to take the code that specifies WordPress and replaced the URL but still don't see the my site information on the login tab correctly. There is a few new files which were not in 5.2 previously that reference login_enqueue_scripts so it seems that adjustments to the login screen cannot be done from functions.php.

Any ideas on this issues.

@susanfla2 thanks for your report. I'm not sure I fully understand the issue. Could you please describe the actual issue you're having and provide the steps to reproduce it?

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Run 5.2.1 Update
  2. Go to WP_LOGIN Screen

Results: Browser Tab does not read properly. It reads as "Log In > creative virtuosity -- Wordpress
See attachment for the current tab.

Thanks, I understand better know. It's the document <title> that gets displayed in the browsers tabs.

As far as I see, this was changed in WordPress 4.9, see [41690] and [41691]. I guess you've updated directly from WordPress 4.9 (or previous version) to 5.2.1?

The intent of the change is to make the document title in the login page consistent with the ones used in the rest of the admin pages. /Cc @SergeyBiryukov

So, previously the title was Site Title ‹ Log In and now is Log In ‹ Site Title — WordPress.

There's now a new login_title filter that can be used to modify the new login title format.

As noted above, the <title> tag on the login page was changed in WordPress 4.9 (see [41690]) to make its format consistent with the rest of admin pages.

The login header logo URL was changed in WordPress 5.2 (see [44899]) to avoid ambiguity and fix discrepancy between single site and Multisite.

There are login_title and login_headerurl filters to modify both the title and the logo URL if necessary.
