Hello,

No, the only way to change the label text is to edit the Web interface source files. The files are not included into Web Interface backups, so you will have to perform the changes after each upgrade. To modify the text of the label:

  1. Make sure that the Web Interface Customization tool is closed.

  2. Open the folder with files for the Web Interface that you want to configure. By default, Adaxes Web Interfaces are installed to the following folders:
    Administrators: C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\Admin\
    Help Desk: C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\HelpDesk\
    Self-Service: C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\SelfService\

  3. In subfolder called App_LocalResources, open the SignIn.aspx.resx file (SignIn.aspx.de.resx for the German version and SignIn.aspx.fr.resx for the French version).

  4. Locate the XML element root\data that has the name attribute set to UsernameLabel.Text:

     <root>
         ...
         <data name="UsernameLabel.Text" xml:space="preserve">
             <value>Username</value>
         </data>
    
  5. Change the text in the value element nested within the data element:

     <root>
         ...
         <data name="UsernameLabel.Text" xml:space="preserve">
             <value>Email</value>
         </data>
    
  6. Save the file.

Can the username examples be customized as well? So instead of "Example: username, username@domain, DOMAIN\username" I could actually put my domain name in? This would make it much easier for my users since they have many domains to deal with and get confused. I didn't see anything in signin.aspx.resx and have poked around in some other files but haven't found it yet. Looks like this might be the variable label: UsernameExampleLbl.

Hello,

You can use the Web Interface Customization tool to change that sample text:

  1. Follow steps 1-3 from the following tutorial:
    http://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInte ... ptions.htm
  2. Click Configure Username Options.
  3. Select Display custom example for the Username field in the Example Text for Username section.
  4. Enter the sample you want in the Custom example field.

Thanks, that worked great. IMO that section is a bit misleading though. I read that section as put example text in the username field. I completely missed the description within that section that clearly says "The example text is displayed below the username filed." Suggested change to this, the previous quoted line wouldn't even be needed:
------------------------------------------------
Example Text Below Username

Display custom example text below the username field
-----------------------------------------------

Just a suggestion and thanks again for the fast response Support!

Hello,

Thank you for your good words, we really appreciate it. Also, thank you for the suggestion. However, for the next version we are developing a new version of the Web Interface, and this will look a bit differently. But we'll keep that in mind, thanks.
