Getting started with login form with image template
Creating new page
Note: Before creating a new page with this template, make sure you have created another page to be able to redirect users to it from the login page to it. Having an authentication profile is also recommended.

The next thing you need to do is configure the login form. Firstly, select an authentication profile (1) for the particular users to be able to log in to their accounts. Pick up a profile from already created (2) or create a new authentication profile (3).
Note: Read this article to find out how to create and set an authentication profile. For this template, you will need to create a ‘Username/password’ kind of profile.

If a user fills in the wrong email address or password, they will not be able to log in. The instant error message will appear above the credential fields.

You might have already noticed that there are two more buttons below the
‘Register new account’ and
‘I forgot my password'. These two are aimed at registration and password reset pages that are typically used in most web and mobile applications.

In case you don’t want to create your own registration and password reset pages and don’t mind having those additional functions out of the box, try our Login flow application template. This one gives you the primary functionality of login, registration and password reset by default.
After you’ve created and set your page, it’s time to add some custom styling to it.
The first thing we can do is add your company’s logo to the login page. Go to the page builder and select the media component with ‘YourLogo’ (1). In the options menu on the left, you will see the link in the source section. Replace it with your own link (2).
Adding background image
Also, you can replace the background image on your login page. Open the page builder and go to the component tree. In the component tree menu, find the first box component from the top, and click on three dots (or just double-click the name ) to open its menu. In the ‘Options’ menu and scroll down to the ‘Background URL’ field. Replace the existing URL with yours.
It’s also possible to play around with page styles using the theme builder: find the color scheme that suits you best or choose different fonts. More information about the theme builder is available here.
