Sign In Module feature - no Login Failed message

Looking for a quick fix for this if possible. Somewhere along the line around version 2.4.0.2, when using the Sign In Module feature on a page, it no longer shows a "Login Failed" message when login fails. It shows nothing.

I have confirmed this behavior in the current Mojoportal Demo site.

This is just for the feature module - the message shows on the admin login page (/secure/login.aspx).

We have a site that uses the login on their homepage and it's causing much confusion. 

Thanks!
Tim

Re: Sign In Module feature - no Login Failed message

I cannot reproduce this problem in 2.4.0.3.

For example try to login on this page: https://hbsmrdocumentation.esdm.co.uk/ and you will see the "Login failed" message.

It also works as expected on the demo site.

Perhaps the problem is with your skin making the message invisible?

Re: Sign In Module feature - no Login Failed message

Just wanted to post an update after finding the problem. If you are using the following user.config key to redirect after login, it will not show the "Login Failed" message. 

<add key="PageToRedirectToAfterSignIn" value="/default.aspx"/> 

It seems to have something to do with the update panel not coming back to the original login page - probably first going to the redirect, then returning to the original page. Looking at the Response in the browser it does not have have any of the update panel html.

This is beyond my skills so I don't know what the fix is, but figured it should be reported.

Thanks
Tim

Re: Sign In Module feature - no Login Failed message

I spent some time looking into this and I don't think I can fix it either, or at least I don't want to put more time into it at this point.

The problem is you can't redirect inside updatepanel, so when you try to force it to redirect with that setting it has to unhook the controls from triggering the updatepanel ajax postback, otherwise the redirect won't happen.

But then on login error the updatepanel does not get updated

there might be some fancy way to solve it instead of unhooking the updatepanel, maybe javascript could be triggered after the updatepanel on success to change the location.href to the redirect url

but at this time it is not something I have time to dedicate to solving, so my recommendation is just don't use the sign in module, just use the login page if you are forcing a specific page redirect on login (which I also don't recommend doing and would not do myself without some real specific need to do that).
