Change WordPress login logo

WordPress login page comes with a default WordPress logo that points to “wordpress.org” and the alt text says “Powered by WordPress”. While I am grateful to WordPress, I would like my visitors/registered users to be able to identify my blog easily. The fact that you are reading this shows that you are interested in this as well. So in this post I explain how to easily change WordPress login logo, pointing url, and alt text easily with and without a plugin. If you are looking the “without plugin” method, you can skip to the next page.

The default WordPress login logo is, at least to me, unappealing, contains an alt text that is irrelevant to my blog, and points to a URL other than my blog.
