Webthority HOW TO
Customize the Login Page
This document describes how to customize the Webthority login page that is displayed to users
when they attempt to authenticate via Webthority.
Any changes you make to the login page CSS and images will be applied to all other pages
the user may see.
Logos and Headers
The logos and header on the login page are fully customizable.
The logos and header images are located on the Proxy machine in <installdirectory>\webapps\[name of
The Quest Webthority logo displayed in the top left corner of the page is referred to as logo.png.
To display your corporate images on the login page, simply replace the existing .png files with
your own .png files.
We recommend that the replacement image is similar in height (147px) and has a
transparent background.
This example shows how to replace the Quest Webthority logo.
1. Copy your .png file, e.g. YourCompanyLogo.png into <installdirectory>\webapps\[name
of proxy]\WEB-INF\templates \public\quest\images
2. Rename logo.png to logo_old.png.
3. Rename YourCompanyLogo.png to logo.png.

4. Now go to your Webthority login page to see the change.
Altering the Style of the Login Page
The login page uses a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) file to determine its styling. You can amend
this file to influence settings such as:
Background Color
Text size
Image Positioning.
The quest.css file is located in <installdirectory>\webapps\[name of proxy]\WEBINF\templates\public\quest\
This example shows how to move the Quest Webthority logo from the top left corner to the top
right corner of the login page.
1. Open quest.css in a text editor, such as Notepad.
2. The #banner Id determines the style of the Quest Webthority logo. The backgroundposition: property determines the position of the logo.

Further Changes
The preferred and recommended method to style the login page is by editing the CSS and image
file as described above, rather than editing the html template files. If the desired look cannot be
achieved in CSS alone, the HTML files may be edited. These are located in the templates folder on
the Webthority Authentication host,
<installdirectory>\webapps\[name of auth]\WEB-INF\templates\
If you choose to edit the HTML files, ensure that you do not alter or remove the HTML form and
its input fields. A description of the template files for the LDAP authentication service is provided
auth_fail.html – page is displayed when authentication is successful, but web role
authorization fails
login.html – the login page
login_denied.html – page is displayed when the session is not allowed at the current
time and if the user’s password has expired with the LDAP server not allowing password
login_fail.html – page is displayed when authentication fails
login_mu_domain.html – page is displayed when users have the same login key, e.g.
SAMAcountName within different domains
login_mu_fqdn.html – login page when users have the same login key
e.g.sAMAccountName within different Organizational Units
passwd_change.html – page is displayed when a user chooses to change their
passwd_success.html – page is displayed when a password change is successful
sys_error.html – page is displayed when there is a system error, e.g. Webthority cannot
connect to the LDAP server.
