Customize login page


I’d like to put a banner on the login page to direct unregistered users. However, UI customizations don’t seem to work there. Is there a way to add text to the auth page otherwise? Or am I simply missing something? My latest attempt looks like:

name: Login Page Message
description: Message on the login page.
author: jdusaint
version: 1.0
includes: ^auth/login

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('div:#authHeader').insertAfter("<div>Contact jdusaint for access.</div>");




Hello Jon,

Thanks for your posting. UI scripts are not supported on the login page but you can simply add a custom text in the administration area under Administration > Site Settings > Login. You can use the Markdown rich-text format for this (e.g. to include lists or links):

I hope this helps and please let me know in case you have any further questions.



Perfect. Thanks!
