Hi all,

I started few days ago with Alfresco and I am trying to fully understand how Alfresco files are organized. I am using Alfresco 4.2.e with Tomcat 7.0.47.

I want to customize login page, and I have understood that this can be done by modifying the FreeMarker file named "login.get.html.ftl".

<strong>"login.get.html.ftl" can be found at two locations:</strong>

<strong>[1]</strong> D:\Program Files\apache-tomcat-7.0.47<strong>\webapps\share\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\site-webscripts\org\alfresco\components\guest</strong>

<strong>[2]</strong> And it can be also found in the "<strong>share.war</strong>" container located at Tomcat webapps folder.

To get permanent changes into this file, <strong>which one should be modified?</strong> the one located in the file system, the one stored in share.war or both? Should these changes be done with tomcat stopped?

<strong>Same question for favicon.ico</strong>; you can find it at the following locations:

<strong>[1]</strong> D:\Program Files\apache-tomcat-7.0.47\webapps\alfresco\favicon.ico

<strong>[2]</strong> D:\Program Files\apache-tomcat-7.0.47\webapps\share\favicon.ico

<strong>[3]</strong> And it is also present in both share.war and alfresco.war.

Should the favicons be modified from the .war files or directly from the filesystem?

Thanks in advance,
