The Login Form module presents site visitors with a form with username and password fields. If the user enters a valid username/password combination they will be granted access to additional resources on your website. Which additional resources they will have access to can be configured separately. See restricting user access to resources for more information.
Once logged in, the Login Form module presents the user with a Logout button. Logged in users who are inactive for a predetermined period of time will be automatically logged out.
To be visible to site visitors the Login Form module must be enabled and assigned to one or more web pages on your Joomla! site.
The Login Form module will appear in whatever module position it is assigned to in the current template. It is also possible to have a Login Form that will appear in place of regular content when a Menu Item is clicked. To learn how to do this see Creating a Login Form menu item.
