      Description

      In struts.xml, login button is tied to LoginAction, however it sometimes goes into another action/page, RegisterAction/register_new_user.jsp.
      The page works fine with FireFox and IE 7, but not IE 6.

      • of struts.xml 's configured "validation.excludeMethods" param values for those actions.

        and pressed "forgot password" link, and we'd be brought back to the login screen with
        "password is required" validation error).
