    I was hoping to find the login page for the admin (~/sitefinity) in the Administration > Backend Pages section, but all I see there ~/Sitefinity/LoginPages/LoginForm. The login page URL that shows up for anonymous users though is ~/Sitefinity/Authenticate/SWT.

    I also tried looking in Adminsitration > Settings > Advanced > Security > Membership Providers > Default > Parameters, but I could not find a login page URL that I can update. Another place I looked was Design > Widget Templates hoping to find the login control template.

    Also would I have to make a different login page for claims based and forms based sites, or is the same login page used for both?

    Hi Basem,

     What you can do in order to have a custom login page is use the custom errors section in the web.config in order to intercept the 403 (unauthorized) errors and redirect to your custom page:

    <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="GenericErrorPage.htm">
                <errorstatusCode="403"redirect="NoAccess.htm"/>
            </customErrors>
    Doing it this way will be the same in both claims and forms authentication.
