Branding your instance - logon.jsp change in SP 8

In our development server, I had changed the color of the signon screen from blue (003366) to Maroon (A31212) to distiquish between servers. Since applying Vs 7.1 SP 8 on our development server, the change was overlaid. I re-applied the change, but the signon screen was not effected. I have recompiled the jsp, I have rebooted server, I have cleared cache and rebooted my pc. Is there another instance of a logon.jsp besides /server/kintana/deploy/itg.war/web/knta/global ????

Hi.
looks like you did everything necessary to re apply the color change. Did you use a script to apply the changes in all files? The login screen consist of these files:
Logon.jsp
LogonContent.jsp
LogonError.jsp
LogonStyleLayout.jsp
(Logout.jsp)
We did the same to distinguish our instances with a script, recompiled, cleared caches and now we have a bright green dev instance.

I did this manually with search/replace. Would you mind sharing your script? Thanks.

Ok, in the shell script there are three locations where a color code is searched an then replaced. replace them with your color codes then run the script (preferably on a test instance first), recompile, clear caches (server and local).
Finally you may want to change some gifs too.

We have many customizations as well.

We handle this by checking all of our custom JSPs into version control. Then when we apply a new SP, we will take the out of the box JSP and merge our customized changes in. Then we reapply the JSP to the PPM installation.

This ends up being a bit of a hassle but it is not too bad. And it allows us to keep the custom branding that our users have become so accustom to.

Thank you. I did also have to change:

CorporateBrand.gif and CorporateImage.jpg

I'll use the script on our Dev box and see if I can get the logon screen back to red.

Thanks for the input and the script.
