CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Display::Basic - XHTML compliant no frills login display driver
This document describes CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Display::Basic version 0.20
This module provides a login box that works out of the box but which can be configured to modify the styling.
The constructor must be passed the CGI::Application object as the first non-object argument.
This method will return the HTML for a login box that can be embedded into another page. This is the same login box that is used in the default authen_login runmode that the plugin provides. Note that if somehow this method is run, whilst the user is authenticated, it will croak.
You can set this option to customize the login form that is created when a user needs to be authenticated. If you wish to replace the entire login form with a completely custom version, then just set LOGIN_RUNMODE to point to your custom runmode.
All of the parameters listed below are optional, and a reasonable default will be used if left blank:
the heading at the top of the login box
the label for the user name input
the label for the password input
the label for the submit button
a message provided on the first login attempt
provide a checkbox to offer to remember the users name in a cookie so that their user name will be pre-filled the next time they log in
the label for the remember user name checkbox
the name of the cookie where the user name will be saved
the URL for the register new account link
the label for the register new account link
the URL for the forgot password link
the label for the forgot password link
a message given when a login failed
use this to get the form to submit using 'get' instead of 'post'
This is alpha software and as such, the features and interface are subject to change. So please check the Changes file when upgrading.
