Customizing Register, Login, and default welcome pages

created

Soapbox Engage User Integration is installed with three default pages to allow for user registration and login. You can customize text to appear on these pages as well as where the user is redirected after completion of a given action.

Customizing the Register page

To customize the register page:

  • In the administrator main menu, go to Menus > Hidden Menu
  • In the Menu Item Manager that opens, click Register in the Menu Item column
  • In the left column, customize the Title, if you wish the page title to be something other than "Register"
  • For Alias, customize the URL for this page, if you wish it to be something other than "/register"
  • Click Save

Customizing the Login page

To customize the login page:

  • In the administrator main menu, go to Menus > Top Menu (Logged-Out)
  • In the Menu Item Manager that opens, click Login in the Menu Item column
  • In the left column, customize the Title, if you wish the page title to be something other than "Login"
  • For Alias, customize the URL for this page, if you wish it to be something other than "/login"
  • In the right column under Parameters (Basic), for Show Login Page Title, select Show, if you wish the text you customize in Login Page Title to be displayed
  • For Login Page Title, customize title text to appear above the login form
  • For Login Redirection URL, enter the URL to which you wish to forward a user after successful login. By default, the user is redirected to a page titled "Member Center". If you wish to keep this redirect as is but customize content of the page displayed, see below. As an alternative, you may wish to redirect the user to any Soapbox Engage form you have created by entering its alias here.
  • For Login Description, select Show, if you wish to customize text to appear below the Login Page Title and above the login form
  • For the Login Description text area, enter the text to appear below the Login Page Title and above the login form. Basic HTML can be used in this field.
  • For Login Image, select one of the default images from the drop down to display on the form or choose "- None Selected -" to not display an image
  • For Login Image Align, select the desired alignment of the image, if you have chosen one to display
  • For Show Logout Page Title, select Show, if you wish the text you customize in Logout Page Title to be displayed
  • For Logout Page Title, customize title text to appear above the logout button
  • For Logout Redirection URL, enter the URL to which you wish to forward a user after logout
  • For Logout Description, select Show, if you wish to customize text to appear below the Logout Page Title and above the logout button
  • For the Logout Description text area, enter the text to appear below the Logout Page Title and above the logout form. Basic HTML can be used in this field.
  • For Logout Image, select one of the default images from the drop down to display on the page or choose "- None Selected -" to not display an image
  • For Logout Image Align, select the desired alignment of the image, if you have chosen one to display
  • Click Save

Customizing the text of the default Member Center page

As noted under "Customizing the Login page" above, by default, users who successfully login to the site are redirect to "/member-center". To customize the content which appears on the Member Center page:

  • In the administrator main menu, go to Content > Article Manager
  • In the Article Manager, click Member Center in the Title column
  • In the article edit view, for Title, enter the text to appear at the top of the page
  • In the main content editor, customize the text you wish to display on this page. You may use the WYSIWYG editor to add images, embed videos, apply styles to text, add hyperlinks, and perform various other tasks. For more on using the WYSIWYG editor, see the Using the Content Editor forum.
  • Click Save

If you wish to alter the URL of the page so it is no longer "/member-center":

  • In the administrator main menu, go to Menus > User Menu
  • In the Menu Item Manager that opens, click Member Center in the Menu Item column
  • In the left column, customize the Title, if you wish the page title to be something other than "Member Center"
  • For Alias, customize the URL for this page, if you wish it to be something other than "/member-center"
  • Click Save
  • Go to "Customizing the Login page" above and edit the Login Redirection URL parameter to match the new alias
