Custom Admin Logo for WordPress 3.3.1 and newer

I found an article today with a bunch of tips for customizing WordPress, and tried to implement one to change the logo at the top left corner of the admin screen. There is normally a WordPress logo there. However, the code didn’t work. After poking around a bit, it became apparent that I must be using an out of date technique. After some further searching I found http://paulbredenberg.com/2012/01/changing-and-overriding-the-wordpress-admin-logo-since-3-3-1/

Thanks to Paul for providing updated code for the original solution found on wpbeginner.com.

Adding vhosts in Apache

On a native install on Mac, to add a vhost:

Next add an entry to the hosts file

To add dev.localhost, do this:

Next, do this:

Then add a new entry for dev.localhost:
(This is for Apache 2.2)

(This is for Apache 2.4)

[Note the subtle differences between Apache 2.2, and 2.4. More info here ]

 

Also, be sure to remove the two dummy-host entries if they are there. Otherwise, you’ll get a warning about them not being found when you restart apache.
