I am trying to change the login logo URL and hover title. I am using the code below but return bloginfo('url'); and return bloginfo('name'); aren't outputting the desired href and title. I'm also using a child theme if that matters at all. What do I need to use instead of return bloginfo('url'); and return bloginfo('name');?

/* ==  Change Logo URL ==============================*/

function my_url_login(){
    return bloginfo('url');
add_filter('login_headerurl', 'my_url_login');

/* ==  Change Logo URL Hover Text ==============================*/
function my_url_login_hover(){
     return bloginfo('name');
add_filter('login_headertitle', 'my_url_login_hover');

Try these filters instead

// changing the logo link from wordpress.org to your site
function mb_login_url() {  return home_url(); }
add_filter( 'login_headerurl', 'mb_login_url' );

// changing the alt text on the logo to show your site name
function mb_login_title() { return get_option( 'blogname' ); }
add_filter( 'login_headertitle', 'mb_login_title' );

Though if you're on a Network/MultiSite you might need network_home_url() instead

    The filter login_headertitle is deprecated since WordPress 5.2.0, use login_headertext instead.

You have to do is simply paste the codes below in your theme’s functions.php file:

  1. Custom Login URL :

    add_filter( 'login_headerurl', 'codecanal_loginlogo_url' );
    function codecanal_loginlogo_url($url) 
      return 'http://www.codecanal.com'; 
      /* Put your desired custom URL here */ 
  2. Site URL :

    add_filter( 'login_headerurl', 'codecanal_loginlogo_url' ); 
    function codecanal_loginlogo_url($url) 
      return home_url(); 
      /* User will be redirected to the site home page */
