That wouldn't work because, under normal conditions, there would then be NO login form on the home page! Normally there is just one login form - the CB Login.


This is not correct. The login page is different than the home page. Create e menu link for the login page (place it in a menu with no published module if you dont want people to see it) ensure the CB login module is published to all pages access the login page.

But I've done all those things - as specified in the documentation. I think I'm missing the point here...

Whatever, I just need some instructions on how to get rid of the additional, persistent Joomla login form.

so im clear, in your screen shot, which one are you reffering to as "the additional, persistent Joomla login form.". The one on the left or the one on the right?

The one on the right ("Lilies Login") is the normal CB Login, generated by mod_cblogin. It works quite happily all the time and I have no problems with it.

The one on the left is the unwanted additional one which appears after a login failure or timeout. It never appears unless there is an authentication failure of some kind.

mod_login is disabled.

Three post ago (4 now?) I mentioned that this is the Joomla login form that Joomla presents to you when you request restricted data. There are joomla plugin that that will redirect to the CB login form.

The thread I linked to contains details on how to modify your template to not show the com_user (Joomlas) component.

And I think I mentioned that I tried this and it didn't work. Perhaps I chose the wrong plugin.

To maintain your credibility, CB needs to provide its own plugin to do this. It's not fair to your users to leave them to track this down by themselves.

At the very least you could point us to some specific plugins that you have found to work.

I have decided to give up on this now - unless some kind person reading this would like to point me to a simple, specific solution that they have proven to work.

It just shouldn't be this difficult.
