How to Use Login Form

We will learn in this tutorial how to use Login Module. You will see that are various ways and methods to configure how users login, where login, where they are redirected after login or logout.

Let’s start:

Login to your administrator area and go to Modules / Site Modules.

Find the Login Form and click to edit. You may also select  the button on the left and ater that click the “edit” button on the top.

Now you will see the coniguration options of the module. First the “DETAILS“:

 – Title: You can rename the title of the module. Instead of “Login Form” the users will see “Users Entrance” (if you change the title to “Users Entrance”)

 – Show title: This will show your users the title of the modules if you select “yes”. If you don’t want the title to appear on your site then select “no”.

 – Position: This show you where the module will appear. By default this is set to “left”, but if you need the login form on the right select “right” from the drop down menu.  The same for other position.

 – Access Level: This is “Public” by default. Leve it unchanged if you want the users to login to your site :)

 – Published: If you want the users to login to your site select “yes”. If you don’t need the login form select “no”.

 

The “PARAMETERS” section:

 – Module Class Suffix: a suffix can be applied to the css class of the module. This allows individual module styling like background, colorus, dimensions, etc.

 – Pre-text: this is the text or HTML that is above the login form. For example you may write “hello visitor, please login here”

 – Post-text:  this is the text or HTML that is below the login form. For example you may write “It’s free to login and register”

 – Login Redirection URL: What page will the login redirect to after login.You can create a static content to thank the user for login and paste the URL here. If left blank will load the frontpage.

 – Logout Redirection URL:  What page will the login redirect to after logout.You can create a static content to thank the user forvisiting your site and paste the URL here. If left blank will load the frontpage.

 – Login Message: Show or Hide a pop-up indicating Login succes.

 – Greeting: This will show a simple greeting to your user like “Hi, username”. or “Hi, Full Name”

The ” PAGES / ITEMS” section:

 – Select here on what pages you want the “Login Form” to appear. You can select “All” and the “Login Form” will appear on all pages, or you can select only some pages (use “ctrl”) and the “Login form” will appear only on selected pages.
