Hi there,

I am looking for a way the target the login form to display a default heading (e.g)
<h1><% if RecordClassName = ??? %>Please login to the CompanyName website<% else %>$Heading<% end_if %></h1>

I know I can create a but in this case I need to be more specific. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Well ClassName will match any security page (login, forgot password etc) so if thats not an issue you can use <% if ClassName = Security %> otherwise you'll need a function in your Page.php which sniffs for the title (you can't have spaces in your <% if %> for 2.*).

// mysite/code/page.php
function isLoginPage() {
return ($this->Title == "Login");

<% if isLoginPage %>

Hi Will,

Thanks for the response for some reason your suggestion didn't work for me. However your code gave me an idea I could accomplish what I was wanting to do using:
<% if URLSegment=Security %>

Thanks again :)

You may also have the same issue with using that as using ClassName = Security, in that forgot password, login and all security/ pages may by oversight all use security has the url segment.
