On a new installation of silverstripe 2.4alpha, the admin login was working with the default tutorial theme, but is not working with a custom theme.

The link in the login form is missing an absolute path slash, so the form action is set to "Security/Login"...

This means users cannot log in, because instead of going to /Security/Login, it tries to load Security/Security/Login which doesn't exist.

I'm not sure what the best way to fix this is...

Do you have a <% base_tag %> in the head section of your custom theme? This is required for paths to work correctly.

That is exactly what is missing. Thanks AJ...

I’ll keep that in mind when building new themes.
