Due to design of site, I'd like to avoid using template for the admin login. Is this possible?

In Security.php, I see:

		// custom processing
		if(SSViewer::hasTemplate("Security_login")) {
			return $customisedController->renderWith(array("Security_login", "Page"));
		} else {
			return $customisedController->renderWith("Page");

Does this mean it has to be the Page template?

Sorry if I'm missing something obvious.

You can create a template named It will be used as template then. If it doesn't exist, will be used.
Make sure you enter the $Form placeholder in the template, otherwise your login form won't be shown.
