NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Display::Basic - XHTML compliant no frills login display driver

CONTENTS

VERSION

This document describes CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Display::Basic version 0.20

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a login box that works out of the box but which can be configured to modify the styling.

METHODS

    new

The constructor must be passed the CGI::Application object as the first non-object argument.

    login_box

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:
TITLE (default: Sign In) the heading at the top of the login box
USERNAME_LABEL (default: User Name) the label for the user name input
PASSWORD_LABEL (default: Password) the label for the password input
SUBMIT_LABEL (default: Sign In) the label for the submit button
COMMENT (default: Please enter your username and password in the fields below.) a message provided on the first login attempt
REMEMBERUSER_OPTION (default: 1) 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
REMEMBERUSER_LABEL (default: Remember User Name) the label for the remember user name checkbox
REMEMBERUSER_COOKIENAME (default: CAPAUTHTOKEN) the name of the cookie where the user name will be saved
REGISTER_URL (default: <none>) the URL for the register new account link
REGISTER_LABEL (default: Register Now!) the label for the register new account link
FORGOTPASSWORD_URL (default: <none>) the URL for the forgot password link
FORGOTPASSWORD_LABEL (default: Forgot Password?) the label for the forgot password link
INVALIDPASSWORD_MESSAGE (default: Invalid username or password<br />(login attempt %d) a message given when a login failed
FORM_SUBMIT_METHOD (default: post) use this to get the form to submit using ’get’ instead of ’post’
