In the initial window, ..login.index.php, two panes show. The left pane contains the login area. The right pane contains a "Is This Your First Time Here" with instructions on how to create a new account.
How can I remove the right pane New Acount information from displaying? I believe it is called from index.php, but I cannot find the reference to the file that contains the text in order to eliminate it.
I assume the reason you don't want that right pane to show is that you are creating all accounts manually yourself? In that case you will want choose the authentication method accordingly (Admin -> Authentication). The right pane will then disappear.
