Change positioning of log in button on ideas portal

Some of our users complained about the log in button being at the bottom of the ideas categories list on the left side of an ideas portal. We had several cases, where users have not find the log in button in the first place (and with this also the "edit profile" button) and wondered why they were not able to see all ideas (as a majority of them are private on a public ideas portal in our case).

Our organization recently went through an email domain change and this also led to several cases where users didn't just change their email address, but accidentally registered again with their new email address, which created a second account for the same user.

My suggestion is to position the log in button somewhere at the top of the page. I guess most of the users are used to that from other websites.

    Thanks for the idea!

    Currently, you can move the login/profile CTA up on the page in two ways:

    1. Add custom CSS to your portal to move the CTA up on the page (see below for an example you can try out!)

    2. We recently updated the ideas portal design style. It sounds like you have the classic version. Go to Ideas portal settings > Branding > Advanced. You can then uncheck the "classic design" option. This design places the login/profile button at the top right of the page. Note that if you change this setting, any custom code will likely need to be updated.

    If you have any questions on either path, please feel free to reach out to our customer success team: They would be happy to help! further!

    Custom CSS: Go to Portal settings > Branding tab - Advanced. Copy/paste the below into the Custom CSS section.

    #sidebar-rollup {
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;

    .signup-link, .current-user-info {
    order: 1;

    .my-ideas-filters-wrapper {
    order: 2;

    .statuses-filters-wrapper {
    order: 3;

    .categories-filters-wrapper {
    order: 4

    body .portal-sidebar .signup-link, body .current-user-info {
    margin-bottom: 16px;
