umm, the messages that appear on the admin login page (e.g. happy manic Monday) are all very "fun" ... but how do I remove / disable them?
If you really want to "hack" it, then edit /umbraco/views/common/dialogs/login.html and remove the following line
Of course it will be restored if you upgrade Umbraco
I don't think that there is an easy way to switch them of like a setting in the /umbracoSettings.config file for instance...but if you search for "Happy manic Monday" here https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=happy+manic+monday you can see where this appears in the source so you should be able to remove it by digging into the source code.
You should probably try doing a search the term in your particular installation since I'm not sure if it's the same files once the project is compiled into the installation files.
And also be aware that you will probably need to disable them each time you need to upgrade the particular installation.
Hope this helps.
Oh, too slow...:D
You rock Jeavon.
Ha, I was looking to customise the messages just the other day (which you can do in the language files).
In all seriousness, I really think there needs to be an easy config way of either turning them off or cusomising the content. I can imagine some clients not being overly impressed ...
Yes it would indeed be nice to be able to disable it using an option. Would you mind adding it as a feature request at the issue tracker?
Customising the content is easily done in the language files. e.g. \umbraco\Config\Lang\en.xml
<key alias="greeting0">Happy super Sunday</key>
<key alias="greeting1">Happy manic Monday </key>
<key alias="greeting2">Happy tubular Tuesday</key>
<key alias="greeting3">Happy wonderful Wednesday</key>
<key alias="greeting4">Happy thunderous Thursday</key>
<key alias="greeting5">Happy funky Friday</key>
<key alias="greeting6">Happy Caturday</key>
Yeah, bit it would be nice if there was a simple disable option somewhere so you would only have to disable it instead of dealing with the translations, no?
Maybe, someone would need to make a PR for that :)
I have created a feature request :-)
I can see that I can simply change the values in the Config/Lang xml files, but Im wondering what strategy people are using to prevent these from being inadvertently changed back during an upgrade? use Source control to manaually compare before and after?
They should go one further and allow us to create a customised login page with the client's branding which is not overwritten on Umbraco upgrade.
Just found that the messages are now configurable - see here http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-5777#comment=67-21081
Just tried it and it works great (just remember to restart the website after the config change)
Hi There, I just had a client calling support on a saturday, saying that the site has been hacked.
The reason was that he said that "Saturday" was misspelled "Happy Caturday".
He said that hackers often misspelled text, and that was an obvious hacked website.
The client called the bureau support, and the server hosting support, so that was a lot of people taking into action, for something like that.
Maybe we should think about removing the greeting totally, and then people can insert it as an easter egg if anyone wants to.
