iChain allows you to customize its login page, but only using very basic HTML. I have a customer who wants to provide their own login form on a web page accelerated by iChain (through a public resource) to allow their users to login through their own web form, not the iChain form.


To do this, all you need is the following code in an HTML (or PHP, ASP, whatever) page:

<FORM ACTION="/ICSLogin/" METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">
User Name: <INPUT NAME="username" TYPE="text" SIZE="20"><br />
Password: <INPUT NAME="password" TYPE="password" SIZE="20"><br />
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="submit" value="Log In" ALT="Login"><br />
