The following sections will demonstrate how to edit your sign in pages. LightSpeed VT will provide an already built Sign In Page for you – this admin area is designed to allow you to make any minor (or major) updates that you may see fit – small edits such as phone or email changes – to large edits like the color scheme. Read on below for more details.
To get started, navigate to the Super User Dashboard and under “101 System Management”, select “Sign In Pages”.
You will be presented with a screen that contains all of your sign in pages (typically you will only have 1 – but if you have more they will be located here.)
To preview the sign in page, click on the “Subdomain” section and it will open a new window for you to preview.
To edit your sign in page, on the right click “Edit Site”.
Once you begin editing your site, you will see the following options:
- This is the name of your sign in page, it will be displayed above the “Username” input field.
- Page Name
- This is the name that will appear on the Title of the site (in the browser) and also in the admin area so you can easily identify it
- Sub Domain
- This is the domain where your users will login. This field is read-only, if you need to update or change it, please contact LSVT Client Care. Note: Creation of the Sub Domain may take up to 1 hour.
- Your account is a home for your collection of Systems, and within those Systems your different themes. It is basically the Parent of the bunch. This tells us if your username is located within a system residing in this account, you will have access to this sign in page.
- Allowed Systems
- This option allows you to specify what systems can use this sign in page.
- This toggle switch allows you to activate and deactivate the sign in page.
- Show Social Media Sign In Integrations
- If you would like your users to be able to use Google, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn credentials to sign in to LightSpeed, you should enable this option. As long as the email address on their social account matches the one entered in LightSpeed, they will be able to login with it.
- Show Terms of Service
- This is optional if you’d like us to turn on a generic terms of service link. (Typically the user has already agreed to the terms of service before they arrive at this point, so we included the option to hide it.)
- This is similar to #5, it is an optional toggle.
- This is just an easy toggle to turn the page on or off
- This will allow you to see who created the site and who was the last to update it.
We added a Metadata section so you could input your own keywords and description if desired for better SEO.
- Enter any amount of keywords for your site here, separated by a comma.
- Enter a standard definition for your site, typically this is what will be displayed by a search engine if it’s found through that medium.
You can now enter your Google Analytics ID or Tag Manager ID to begin using Google Analytics tracking.
- Google Analytics ID
- Google Tag Manager ID
This section gives you details about the sign in page, such as when it was created and when it was last updated.
The Page Design section is where you can apply your branding to the sign in page. This section is broken down into three subsections General, Styles and Custom CSS.
The general subsection is where you can upload your logo and background image. You can also provide a logo link, which is the URL that users will go to when they click on the logo.
The styles subsection is where you can add your colors to the sign in form.
- Header Background Color
- This color is set using an RGBA value. You can use the color picker to choose it, or you can enter the value manually. The 4th number in the list controls whether or not the background section is transparent or visible. (1 for visible, 0 for transparent). Setting this to 0 will cause the bar to disappear and the rest of the background image will be viewable.
- Form Color
- This is the main color of the form itself.
- Text Color
- This is the main color for the text found on the main section of the page – everywhere you see neon green (in our example) is where this is controlled.
- Link Color
- Anywhere there is an HTML or navigation link on the page, it is controlled by this setting.
- Error Color
- The Error Color (not shown in the screenshot) will change the color of the Username and Password fields if the user enters incorrect data.
- Footer Color
- This controls the color of the Secure Server link and LightSpeed VT Logo – you can adjust this as necessary to contrast and stand out from your background image.
- Background Color
- This will set the background color of the Username and Password fields – the color only appears when the user clicks on it to activate the field and enter their information.
- Text Color
- If the user is entering correct information, the text will stay this color – as well as the underline you see below it in the screenshot. If there is an error, the text will change color to the setting below.
- Error Text Color
- If the user tries to submit invalid information, the sign in page will report an error. When the user returns to the field that has an error, the text color will change and use this setting (it is portrayed as YELLOW text in the screenshot below).
- Background Color
- This field will set the background color of the button to what ever color you specify. The button will change to the color that you choose when the mouse cursor is hovering over it. This also controls the outline color of the Social Share buttons.
- Text Color
- This is the color that the text will CHANGE to once you hover over the button.
This is where you can apply custom css to the sign in page.
The Content section covers the images and custom text you can modify on your sign in page. Below are some detailed descriptions as well as some screenshots similar to above showing what section affects which area of the sign in page.
- Welcome Message
- This text appears above the sign in area, you can customize it to how you see fit, a good default for this is something like, “Please enter your username and password below to sign in.” If you leave it blank, a default sentence will be used like the one in our example screenshot: Sign in with your Acme Black Account.
