How to access
You can access the Login module by either opening an existing Weblinks module in the Module Manager or by creating a new Login Module. You can access the Module Manager by going to Extensions > Module Manager
This Module displays a username and password Login form. It also displays a link to retrieve a forgotten password. If User registration is enabled in the User Settings of the Global Configuration screen, then the link "Create an Account" will be shown to invite Users to self-register.
At the top right you will see the toolbar:
The functions are:
- Save. Saves the module and stays in the current screen.
- Save & Close. Saves the module and closes the current screen.
- Save & New. Saves the module and keeps the editing screen open and ready to create another module.
- Save as Copy. Saves your changes to a copy of the current module. Does not affect the current module. This toolbar icon is not shown if you are creating a new module.
- Cancel/Close. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
- Help. Opens this help screen.
- Pre-text. Optional text or HTML to display above the login form.
- Post-text. Optional text or HTML to display below the login form.
- Login Redirection Page. The page to load after a successful login. Select from the drop-down list box. If no page is selected, the home page will be used.
- Logout Redirection Page. The page to load after a successful logout. Select from the drop-down list box. If no page is selected, the home page will be used.
- Show Greeting. Whether or not to show the simple greeting text, for example, "Hi Administrator".
- Name/Username. Whether to use the user's Name or Username in the simple greeting.
