Summary0000878: Decrease design clutter on the login page
DescriptionDecrease design clutter on the login page (also for more flexible customization), put "powered by" + link in text in the footer.

At this moment, just changing the logo with a company logo is far from enough. A clean login page makes it much easier to customize web2project for a new company setup.

Can you describe some specific itemsto change here?

------- Multiple ICO files -------
/style/web2project/favicon.ico - Size 32x24

/style/web2project/w2p_icon.ico - Size 32x24

/style/web2project/images/w2p_icon.ico - Size 32x24

/style/web2project/images/w2p_icon.ico - Size 32x24

/style/web2project/images/icons/w2p_icon.gif - Size 32x24

/style/web2project/images/icons/w2p.gif - Size 32x24

Keep only two names: favicon.ico and company_icon.ico

If there is no technical reason to masquerade an .ico file as a .gif then don't (see below: issues with extensions), if there is then rename to : company_icon.gif and give technical instructions to create them as ico, but rename to .gif.

Are all these locations required? If not then reduce numbers.
------- the Company Logo files -------
/style/web2project/images/w2p_logo.jpg - Size 550x125
-> Rename to company_logo_550x125.jpg

/style/web2project/images/modules/public/public.png - Size 64x64
-> rename to company_public_64x64

/style/web2project/images/title.jpg - Size 123x28
-> Rename to company_title_123x28

------- Issues found with picture extensions -------
-> the extension is not correct, this is not a jpg image, but in PNG format.

-> the extension is not correct, this is not a jpg image, but in ICO format.

The design clutter I referred to is in the header of the login page. If you remove:

<td style="background:url(./style/web2project/images/logo_bkgd.jpg)"> </td>

or rename it to and make its position clear in the documentation then we mere mortal users can find it and take it out, or change colour/design as required.

A bunch of the clutter is gone but not all of it.

In the meantime, check out the Bootstrap theme:

I'd like to roll it into core for v4.0

The login screen has been reworked in v4.0 to be much simpler and cleaner. All graphics are removed too.

I'm changing this issue to acknowledged.

While it's resolved in the v4.0 development branch. That is going to be reviewed commit by commit and merged into a new development branch over the next couple months.
