I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the adfs\ls directory where you installed the ADFS (or the proxy) there's a formsignin.aspx.  Add your hyperlink there.

I want to add a disclaimer that's a hyperlink so where exactly would I place this?

Kyle AbrahamsSenior .Net DeveloperCommented:
anywhere you want on the formssignin.aspx page.  The ASPX page is a normal application page.

Doesn't work. Researching online and its pointing to edit the masterPage.master.cs

The master page is loaded with the content page.  

See below for the content page link.

<asp:Content ID="FormsSignInContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">
    <div class="GroupXLargeMargin">
     <asp:Label Text="<%$ Resources:CommonResources, FormsSignInHeader%>" runat="server" />*</div>
    <table class="UsernamePasswordTable">
        <tr>
            <td>
                <span class="Label"><asp:Label Text="<%$ Resources:CommonResources, UsernameLabel%>" runat="server" /></span>

Doesn't work.  I just tried your sample and it did not work. Most of the edits I've done has been on the Master Page but it still won't take the hyperlink.

are you sure that you're making the change on the correct server?  If there's a farm are you editing it on all servers?

Also try clearing your cache?  

the master page is a web page with placeholders for content pages so you get the same look and feel.  Both the master page and the formssigninpage will get loaded and run.

We only have one server and I clear the cache and restarted the services. Text and hyperlink doesn't show up and it breaks the other SSO logins.

Not sure what to tell you.  Microsoft says you can modify the pages directly - which work here in our environment.  What kind of error are you getting?
