    Does anyone know if it is possible to create a custom login page for a large group?  We would like to have their logo and a special welcome for when people from this group login.

    That would be a customization that a third party dev would need to do. You only want those Group members to see that login? Are these Group members also in a special member level? For a customization, I think it would be easier of those Group members were also in their own member level.

    Hi Donna,

    Thanks for the quick reply. 

    Interesting thought to create a new Member Level specific for these folks. Would there be an advantage other than basic segmentation?

    Regarding the Custom Login page:
    Our thinking is a simple duplicate of the existing /login page but with a url something like /club-login - which would be branded with their logo and a special welcome message. All existing workflow functionality would remain as the existing /login page.   Basically, just a nice gesture on our part.

    Can we use the file /application/modules/User/Form/login.php -- as a template to create this new custom login page? Would this create any conflicts?

    Thanks in advance for any advice and guidance.

    Member levels allow you to monetize, add more privacy options, add some content options. For example, here there are threads that are private just for experts or just for clients. You can have forum sections set up so that only that member level can see them. You can even assign a network to that member level for more privacy.


    You can try on a development site to make a plugin for a new login page and use that form in it. You will need help from an expert for the redirect and stuff.
