Well, the Sitefinity Login Control definitely seems to handle redirecting with query strings, at least as long as I provide full URIs. No problem if the support is not official, we can handle that for now. (yet another item on the list of things not to bother with until Sitefinity 4.0!)
The MSDN article was good, but less relevant right right now since we were going to use the template/css approach.
I created a copy of the \Sitefinity\UserControls\Login\LoginControl.ascx, altered markup and applied css. Task accomplished.
Still, I tried to alter some settings of the Login Control instance using the Sitefinity property dialogs. Same problem, I can not alter any settings (e.g. changed text for UserNameLabelText, text never changes).
I have experienced similar "missing behavior" with other controls. It is a bit annoying to be programming just to alter small design details, it would be very convenient if the web editors could alter properties of all controls, for those single occurrences.
A bug? Something we do wrong?
