Description

11 years ago
I have the above url bookmarked.
If I'm not logged in this - understandably - goves me:
'Error - You must log in to use this feature'

but the 'Go Back' javascript:history.back() link seems pointless to me...
the login dialogue would be much more productive.

(I realise there's a Log in link top right but that just racks up the mouse miles)

I guess this could be duped to 419387 though I think they cover different things
that's how you log in whereas this is the click path of hitting a page that requires log in.

Why don't we just show the login box on that error page?

Eric, if you want I can take this one, seems like I'd have time for it :)

why's this confidential?
I thought it was trivial usability?

Summary: Log in required 'Go Back' link should be 'Log in' or ideally the login dialogue → Log in required page should show log in box

Seems to be already fixed, probably in a previous bug that I can't find.
