HI there,

Overnight the login fields (username and password) to the cms have completely disappeared from the /admin page. I have done a hard refresh including a ?flush=1 and still no luck.

Hopefully this is a simple fix? Also any reason why this should happen considering no changes have been made?

Thanks in advance.

Make sure that your template (themes/your-theme-name/templates/Layout/ have a line that is $Form.
The $Form is what outputs the form fields on the login page.

Just checked in templates/layout in my theme folder and it already has $Form in it.

This was working fine till a day ago, no changes have been made to the site, and yet the cms login fields have disappeared.

Very weird!

I have no idea why that would happen but it looks like you might be using an older version of SilverStripe (references to scripts in jsparty folder) - if it was me I would try downloading the latest core files and swapping them in and see if that fixes the problem. Then you'll be running the latest and greatest as a bonus.
