LoginWidget

  • Why does the login widget have to be ajax based, it's so strange...

    When you click login nothing happens for a few seconds, THEN on success the browser kicks in to redirect.

    You guys don't do this on sitefinity.com or telerik.com, why can't we get a normal postback control which could maybe have some events or things for us to handle as well.
  • Hi,

     The reason why we're making an Ajax call is, because when using SSO your STS may be on a different address and we can't make a postback to this address.

  • Could there be a version\mode in which there is a regular postback?

    Maybe an SDK or blog post...or native control (or mode on the existing LoginWidget)?

  • Hello Steve,

     In theory it won't be hard to create an authentication control, which will execute the Authentication api on submit and will perform a postback. However, we are making an Ajax call to be sure that the authentication is secured. The login widget on Sitefinity.com is designed for a different authentication architecture and this is why it performs a postback.
