[pmwiki-devel] Login and function PmWikiAuth

I prefer to use a login form in the sidebar - just username and password 
- along with authuser and authuserdb. This works fine except  when an 
invalid login occurs. In this case $AuthPromptFmt is opened in the main 

This look a bit odd, because there are then two login prompts on the 
page: one in the sidebar and one on the main page.

What I am trying to achieve is to retain the main page unchanged, and 
simply report login/page access errors in the sidebar form.

I can see that this is handled by the last lines of PmWikiAuth(), but 
can't think of a way to change this in situ to do what I want.

Is the best way to copy PmWikiAuth() with appropriate changes, and point 
to it via $AuthFunction? Or, more likely, am I way off base?
