By default, the ADFS forms based login page supplied by an ADFSProxy server is a best pretty boring and at worst inaccurate.
Out of the box, it looks like this:
Wouldn't it be nice to:
Well, if you agree, today is your lucky day!
Please, keep in mind that it is quite possible (likely even) that some of the changes I describe below will be overwritten when you apply any update to ADFS. Make sure you:
These instructions are applicable to ADFS 2.0 with update rollup 2. I have not tested this with any other past or future version.
Having covered all necessary behinds…on with the show

These are just a few of the theme elements you can fiddle with on the ADFS Proxy form. As you play with these, you will see other text tidbits you may want to adjust. Just be certain to follow my warnings and back everything up before and after your fiddling.
Thanks -- this is very helpful!
This has been a great help to us.....do you know how I can make text that is in the disclaimer to be a hyperlink? thanks again.....
The disclaimer is in HTML format, so you could add a hyperlink anywhere in the text block. Like this:
Great post - I'm trying to add HTML to the disclaimer (inserting Image source tag and some font tags) but the page generates an error. It seems to be related to using double quotes - perhaps it breaks quoted bounds of the STSFooter.Text from your example.
Has anyone been successful at adding an image source or a link href tag to the disclaimer? How did you accomplish this?
Thanks - this is very useful.
One question, Is it possible to dynamically display the target application name in the login page?

Thanks for the info provided. \m/
I've been trying to implement a custom sign in page for a while - these concise and accurate instructions helped me resolve it in very short order. Brilliant, many thanks.
for adfs can we provide access control on the list of relying parties thats shown?
can anyone please help
meaning can i log into the idp and only get a list of applictions that i am allowed to see?
current adfs shows ALL relying parties configured against it, disregarding my logo access, can we have access control on the list in anyway?
Kevin, That question goes beyond my scope of knowledge. Please check out the ADFS 2.0 content map: social.technet.microsoft.com/.../2735.ad-fs-2-0-content-map.aspx
You may find an article there.
