How to add customized text in the login page

Hi Atlassian Support,


Could you please suggest how to add customized text in the confluence login page? We need to show the text somewhere within the "Log In" section. Kindly suggest. We are using confluence v7.3.3.

You can do this using pure CSS so that you don't need to change any velocity templates.

Something like this for example:

.login-form-container fieldset:before {
content:'Your text here....';

 This will add text just below the login title.

Hi @Bogeswari Challa 

Please follow the below steps to add the text.

  1. Shut down your Confluence server.
  2. In the Confluence installation directory, find the file confluence/login.vm file
  3. Make a copy of this file as a backup.
  4. Edit the file with a text editor to make the required changes. I have made the changes here.
  5. Start Confluence and test your changes. Here you can see that I have added the text "Welcome to TEST INSTANCE".
