The easiest way to begin customising the logon page and portal is to start with the languages.
First, on the Authentication tab of your Trunk settings, deselect ‘Enable users to select a language’. Disabling this option will remove the option to select a language from the logon page, cleaning up the page.
Next, start by copying:
- \von\InternalSite\Languages\en-US.xml to \von\InternalSite\Languages\CustomUpdates \en-US.xml
- \von\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\en-US.xml to \von\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\CustomUpdates\en-US.xml
These files contain all the text strings that are shown on the Logon Page (InternalSite) and Portal page (PortalHomePage). If you try to manually edit the \InternalSite\Login.asp you will notice none of your changes are reflected as all the strings are referenced in the language files.
Begin by editing these files to reflect your required branding. You don’t have to re-activate the portal each time. The web pages will update automatically.
Couple of quick wins:
- If you’re from a country that spells correctly, do a find and replace on ‘authorize’ for ‘authorise’.
- Do a find and replace on ‘Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway’ for your portal name.
Some of the more key strings to modify from \InternalSite\ (Logon Page) are:
