Customize Your SquirrelMail Login Page

Posted by & filed under , , .

If you’re using SquirrelMail then you are probably a bit fed up with the plain look-and-feel of the product. I’m not against it, it’s just that it DOES look kind of amateurish, unfortunately 🙁 While there is currently work in progress to make it more customizable and skinnable and so on in a future release, most of us are stuck with the standard (read “poor” 😉 ) look-and-feel for now. There are of course plugins that help a bit with that — not that much unfortunately, but if you use your JavaScript skills on top of some you get some wicked results.

So I’ve started looking at these plugins and how one can add JavaScript on top of it to make SquirrelMail more appealing to the eye.

Since I’ve only just started experimenting with this, I thought I’d start with the Login Page. And I figured out a way of how to make the login page look better. You can read more about it on my main site, by following this link.

Happy squirrelling! 🙂

    I see a lot of users still search and reach this page. This fix might work if you have an older version of SquirrelMail, however, here’s a recent conversation with folks at SquirrelMail which might help with this:

    First, be aware that this tracker is for SquirrelMail only, and not third
    party plugins. Feel free to make us aware of issues you find in plugins on the squirrelmail-plugins mailing list as well as contacting plugin authors directly.

    Can you please try the newly released version 3.0? It is a major re-write with many fixes and new features.

    Thanks for you help”
