overrides_custom problems login screen on AWS Edition

Hello everyone

I uploaded a new theme (in root directory as a superuser) and activated it.

In this theme I included the following code in overrides_custom.css

loginPage #copy {
    display: none;

I wanted to disable the left column of the default login screen.
But I cannot see the changes in the login page.(even after deleting cache and restaring the server)
Changes regardig colors etc. apply correctly.
Can anyone help?

Thank you.
The problem was: I left the '#'. (shame on me)

Now it works. :)

Thanks a lot for the hint.

I'm not sure why this is, but the following seems to work, at least on the stand-alone server (your code did not work on the stand-alone; I haven't tried AWS):

#loginPage #copy {
    display: none;
#loginPage #loginForm {
border:1px solid #666;
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
bottom: 0;

It will give you a blue background instead of the #copy area. My guess would be that without the login form somewhere, the overrides don't work. However, why it isn't putting the login form on the left, I don't know....

Note also you left # off the beginning of the first line in your example, but putting that in didn't seem to make it work.

You could also remove all the branding. The Ultimate Guide has a section in Chapter 11 "Customizing JSP and JavaScript for the Login Page" that tells you where all the messages and logos are; you could use that to remove everything and make a white page.
