Hello everyone!

I'm new to the forums so I hope this is getting posted in the correct location.  We are running a 07.02.02 (303) DNN Site for our company intranet.  Right now, the login screen uses the standard screen and prompts for Username and Password.  I need to change the text "Username" to read "EmployeeNumber".  I have searched in the authentication module and the login.ascx page but can't seem to find this text.  Can anyone point me in the correct location.

You can view the login page here ( ) and the highlighted text is what I want to change.

goto Admin > Languages, select edit pin in "Site" column for your language to open the language editor.
Locate the proper file in the tree on the left, you should look for the text in local > DesktopModules > Authentication > DNN > App_LocalResources

Thank you. I would have never figured this out on my own.
