Login screen

The login screen will get a makeover to make it more appealing and usable. The login screen will be fully customizable. See a screenshot of the first iteration below.

MODX3 Login screen


  • Fully customizable look & feel through System Settings
  • Ability to disable help-button
  • Seasonal backgrounds (spring, summer, autumn, winter) and ability to release new backgrounds with later MODX versions.
  • Ability to change background
  • Improved UX for 'Forgot password' and compliant with current security regulations


The final results of the login screen can be found in this weekly update. It was made possible by great contributions from Rinze van der Brug (STERC), Christian Seel (SEDA.digital), Mark Hamstra (modmore) and Vasily Naumkin (modx.pro).
