I've added a log in form etc to the header of my site ( by adding $LoginForm. All good.

However, if the user ends on original SS login page (links, incorrect password etc) then there are TWO login forms on the page - and the CSS is getting all messed up

I would like, on the /Security/ pages, to not show the log in page in the header - not just hide it via css, but actually not show it, so there aren't duplicated bits of forms around...

Any suggestions?

Probably best to do the logic of the if within php, rather than with the tempate...

<% if SecurityLoginPage %>
<% else %>
//show form
<% end_if %>


function SecurityLoginPage() {
return (strpos($_GET['url'],'Security')!==false);  //note untested!

Or you can use ClassName (saves adding that method)

<% if ClassName = Security %>
<% else %>
<% end_if %>

Hi Willr - just tried that - sounds easier, but it made no change...

page just putting $ClassName on the page, i saw that the 'Security' pages are simply classname 'Page'...

so ended up using the function above - work fine...

Security Pages have an ID of 0 so you could filter for if ID=0

I think you can filter on <% if URLSegment != Security %> ... <% end_if %>
