    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.
