FIM customization- change the Position of wellcome and logout option


  • Hi,

    In the  FIM portal, Welcome<Name> is displayed in the right corner. There is one drop down which contains the logout also.
    Here, my requirement is Welcome<name> should come to left of the page and logout should be on the right corner of the page instead of dropdown. 

    Kindly suggest how it can be achieve.

  • This is more of a SharePoint question that specific to FIM.  There are two ways to modify the OOB FIM templates:

    You can modify the FIM Theme, basically the CSS and Images in the following location:

    "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\THEMES\FIM"

    You can modify the FIM Site Template, the aspx pages that load all of your controls:

    "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\SiteTemplates\FIM"

    It would probably be a good idea to create a CustomFIM copy of the original Theme and Template folders.  After you make your changes you will need to add the Template into the gallery with the STSADMIN command.  Then go into SharePoint and change the Site Template/Theme... SharePoint will then copy the changed you have made in the above folders into the active area.

    There should be quite a few tutorials out there on Customizing SharePoint Templates and Themes.
