Well, I got it done and I have very little html experience. If your just changing the look and feel its pretty easy. What are you trying to accomplish ? It all depends what you want to do. Here is a guide:
The manual is pretty good.
My pointer is to remember that you need to recustomize pages each time you change major releases on the SA. I've forgotten that through 2 upgrades so far, and then been surprised when the device reverted to the standard login page.
Download the sample.zip from the IVE and work off of that. The downside to custom pages is that you lose the ability to change variables through the Admin Console like you can with the Default Sign-In Page such as the Welcome Message or the Instructions/Banner message. You have to edit the pages and upload a new set.
I haven't used them, but the CSP manual lists variables named -
which appear to be the instructions on the right of the default screen, the portal name, and the welcome message. These are all usable in the LoginPage.thtml custom sign-in page code.
ok, I have read and serched everything I could and finally I just want something simple and up to date.
I'm running ver 6.4 R4.1.
I am not a code person at all, my head is full enough.. lol. the KB articles are out of date and the code has changed. Template toolkit was a waste of a day for me
what I would really love to see is a sample login and logout page regarding how I can simply change my Welcome message and add a disclaimer.. basically edit the same fields that one can on the actual Default Sign-in page on the IVE.
Personally I think Juniper should just make the Default Sign-in page into something you can copy and rename... click / type .. done.
Anyways if someone has a sample of how they made these simple changes on the login and logout page thtat would be greatly appreciated.
heres a solution for your disclaimer until you get the custom one, go to signing in, Default sign in page and where it says Instructions, place your disclaimer there, you can use html code so you can do bold italic and all that simple stuff ie

Thanks, however I was speaking exculsively regarding the custom sign-in pages. I have already done all the configuring for the Default sign in page.
So again if someone has or can provide a sample custom loging / logout page showing how one can put in their own welcome page / extra notes / change sign in button text etc that would be greatly appreciated.
As Kenlars said the key is using the variables. To use them just put lines like the following some where near the start:
<% SET portal = 'Your Portal Name' %>
<% SET instructions = 'Your text' %>
There are variables for almost everything you can set on a standard page through the Admin UI . This means is is quite straightforward to set up a custom page that looks the same as a standard page without needing to get into the details of the html/scripting.
Thanks, I did look at the variables, but still didn't know what to do with them or where they should go. It's just not my area.
So again thanks for clarifying. I'll give it a go.
