customizing login screen message in linux

Pranaam to all Bhai ji _/\_
Today we will learn how to customize our Linux command line terminal for custom login message screen .
whenever we get login screen in command line mode , a message appear on the screen. After successful login , we get shell on machine and again a message appear (different from login screen message).
so lets customize them according to our wish ^_^ and put message that we want >:D<
we need to edit 2 files during this procedure
1st one is /etc/issue
2nd one is the user's .bashrc file(it will be under user home directory).

i am on CentOS Linux.
and here is my default login screen message

and here is my message screen after successful login

lets change them ;)
first we will change login screen message , so open /etc/issue file in vi or nano editor
and you will see, default content of file is same as login screen message because it is used by system duing login :P . This is the current content of the file

lets change it :P

save it, logout and see =))

hell yesh \m/ login screen message has been changed ^_^

ok now lets change message after login
to change this message , edit .bashrc file of the user(this file exist in user home directory)
open it in vi editor using command
vi  ~/.bashrc

this is our default .bashrc file content , edit it for your custom message
i am adding text after aliases and this is my edited .bashrc file

save it . logout and login again to confirm changes

and yes :) now our login screen message as well as message after login has been changed XD

Thank you
