By the password page, do you mean the password prompt?

If you only want to add text to the prompt's message, try this:

    XLSDV('en', array('Password required' =>
        "Password required</b> see the <a
         href='\$ScriptUrl/\$SiteGroup/PasswordHelp'>password help</a>
         page.<b> "));

(Substitute your custom message text for the text between </b> and <b>.)

You can also modify the password prompt with


See pmwiki.php for the default value of $AuthPromptFmt.
