I am developing a site with Codeigniter 2.1.3

I am using HMVC to create ion_auth modules.

I am trying to separate my frontend and backend login system.

I created two modules for ion_auth: application/modules/auth - for the frontend application/modules/admin - for the backend

Both have the same files, except the admin auth controller is calling a different login view.

My homepage view calls the login view like this:

echo Module::run('auth/login');

Both auth controllers extend Frontend_controller which extends MY_Controller. MY_Controller is in application/core and it extends MX_Controller.

The login view for the frontend is using ajaxForm to submit the form:

<div id="login_form">
 $attr = array('class'=>'form-inline', 'id'=>'loginForm');
 $send = array('class'=>'btn btn-inverse', 'name'=>'signin', 'value'=>'Sign In');
 echo form_open(site_url('auth/login', $attr));
<div >
 <img src="<?php echo site_url('assets/img/login.gif'); ?>" alt="Login" />
<div  left; font-size:11px; font-weight:bold;padding-top:25px;margin-right:45px">LOGIN</div>

<div left">
 <?php echo form_label('Cellphone', 'cellphone', array('class'=>'login-label')); ?>
<div class="span2"  padding-top:10px"><?php echo form_input('identity', set_value('identity', ''), 'placeholder="cellphone no" class="span2 phone" id="cellphone"'); ?></div>

<div left; margin-left:10px"><?php echo form_label('Password', 'password', array('class'=>'login-label')); ?></div>
<div class="span2"  padding-top:10px"><?php echo form_password('password', '', 'placeholder="password" class="span2" id="password"'); ?></div>
<div class="span1" ><?php echo form_submit($send); ?></div>
<input type="hidden" name="submitLogin" value="1" />
<?php echo form_close(); ?>
<div class="clearfix"></div>
 var options = { 
 target: '#login_form',
 success:       showResponse  // post-submit callback 


// post-submit callback 
function showResponse(responseText, statusText, xhr, $form)  { 
   alert('status: ' + statusText + '\n\nresponseText: \n' + responseText + 
        '\n\nThe output div should have already been updated with the responseText.'); 

I have a few problems:

Problem One: I read through the HMVC documentation and added these lines to the MY_Controller file:

$this->form_validation->CI =& $this;

I created a MY_Form_validation file in: application/libraries:

class My_Form_validation extends CI_Form_validation()
 public $CI;

After doing this when I go to my homepage I get this error: Cannot access protected property CI_Form_validation::$CI in C:\sites\tl\application\core\MY_Controller.php on line 12

Problem two: If I don’t do these form validation changes and try to submit the login form on the homepage it opens the login view again in a new page with no errors. It looks like it is not using jquery to submit the form

Problem three: It looks like the login form does not use the jquery ajaxForm to submit the form. I don't understand why.

Please, can someone help with that?

I am struggling for days now to have this login system working.

Managed to solve the problem, it was a mistake in the login form:
echo form_open(site_url('auth/login', $attr);
Should be:
echo form_open(site_url('auth/login'), $attr);

Cool you got it sorted out, I am pretty sure people will find this helpful..

I was gonna say, it is the view causing the problem, because it is HMVC where the view is restricted to just following whatever the Controller desires.. pretty much the same concept as presentation abastraction control... or "Waiters are not allowed in the Kitchen" concept.
