    Hello,

    Are you trying to make the username and password a required field?

    To be able to do that you must click on the field and click the properties icon. Here's what I mean.

    Kindly let us know if you have further questions or inquiry.

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    I am sorry but I am having a hard time understanding what you are trying to achieve. Can you elaborate more or provide more information, let say a screenshot or further details?

    Thank you!

    Once I add the code to my page and publish it---when a user goes to put in the username and password---doesn't it need to be specified somewhere in the code?  Does that help with my question?

    @preck

    I am not sure if I have understood your question. Do you want to create a login form or are you have trouble to log in to your JotForm account?

    Please elaborate so that we can help you better.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    I can put the  form on the page---right now when I publish it's not showing up.  But, my question is when it appears on the live page---such as

    Username________________

    Password________________

    Somewhere in the form or code should it list the desired/needed username and password for members to use to login and get to a members page?

    Hello! If I understood it correctly, you want the users to be able to enter their Username and Password, have it verified, and if correct, take them to the members page, right? 

    That is actually done in the server side of your site and would need PHP codes for that. Basically, you need PHP codes to store what the Username and Password the users typed, compare it to what is in your database, and if it matches, redirect them to the members page. You would need to contact your web developer for that since, unfortunately, our forms are not really intended for creating Log-In forms. Thanks.

    Hello saleem,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to create a login form where you want to ask user's their username and password? 

    Unfortunately it is not possible to achieve your requirement. Authentication form can't be used in JotForm and creating such forms are against the Terms of Use. It is anyway not possible to validate the credentials from previous submissions or any external datasource.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else. You may like to create a new thread for your question.

    Thank you!
