'Log in' Module (login_box)

This Module allows users to login to Tiki. Based on your selections on the Admin: Login page, there may be additional fields on the module:

  • If you enable the Users can register option, the module will include a link to the Registration form.
  • If you enable the Remind passwords option, the module will include a link to the I Forgot My Password form.
  • If you enable the Remember me option, the module will include a Remember Me checkbox.
  • If you enable the HTTPS login option, the module will include links to use standard or secure login.
  • If you enable OpenID authentication, the module will include an OpenID field.

After logging in, the module will change to include a Logout button. If you have permissions, the module will also include a field that allows you to "switch" to another user's login.

Tip: If the Login was removed from the left or right column, you can access the login page directly by using:



You will see it listed at "Admin > Modules > Assign new module > Module Name (drop down)" (tiki-admin_modules.php).

You can assign this Module to a lateral column (See Module Admin page if needed).

The assigned module (with its default values) looks like this:
