Re: Add log in module, help for a newbie

1) Themes- I understand that not all modules work with all themes. I am using TheNews. Does the log in module work with this theme or do I need to change it?


Yes. The Log In module works with all themes. If you have a brand new Tiki, you should see the Log In module in the top bar, by default.

Are there other settings in this section that need to be checked (or un-checked) for the Log In Module to be available? Are there settings in another section that need to be checked or un-checked for the Log In Module to be available? Or am I good to go as far as configurations to make this module available?


When you add the Log In module to a Tiki column, be sure that you've assigned it to the Anonymous group (so that you can see it when you're not logged in). Also, make sure you haven't configured the module to appear only for specific categories, sections, etc. Please see the docs for details.

But how the heck do I get the module on the Home Page?


If you want to add the Log In module to a wiki page (instead of it appearing in a column), you'll need to use the Module plugin. This plugin allows you to add a module (such as the Log In module) to a Wiki page. Please see the docs for details.
