Sorry - I knew I would find it the moment I sent out the email, but Mr.
Murphy says I would still be looking if I hadn't sent it... :-)

The answer to my previous question is to edit the page Site.AuthForm.  There
are also some good hints about this at
http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/CustomAuthForm, providing a per-group
auth-form, etc.

Now my next question:

I now have a "please enter qdk below" on my authform.  That's great when a
user is trying to edit an open page.  But it can be confusing when a
particular page has a different password or if someone is trying to change
attributes rather than edit the page.  Is there any way to put this message
only when someone is editing an "open" page?
