I want to set the default login page via the site settings admin page. I have a custom account login module which inherits from AuthenticationLoginBase which was imported as an extension via the "From Control" path, and I've added it to the page that I want to define as my Login page. This page doesn't appear as an option for selection in the drop down adjacent to the Login tag so I'm wondering what else I need to do to the login module to let DNN know that it is an account login module. (FWIW, no pages appear in the drop down list for setting the login page).

Because of a lot of legacy code testing that seems to happen around what a login module is
- the best option is to also put the core dnn login module on the same page as your custom login module.

Set it to admin only so that it will never been seen by end users - but the fact that the core login module is on the same page will make the system happy
