As default, the text on the login page is set to white.


We need to change the settings in Theme Manager.

Please follow the steps:

  1. go to Admin Center > Theme Manager > Login Styles > Login background

           Background colour = #FFFFFF

           Overlay option = Light

           Overlay opacity = 100%

           Background type = Light


  1. Save the updated settings

This will result changing the background colour to white and the text to black.
