I've done it, but now there is a problem!!! In the options-page appears an

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.13
We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but
the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

How can I hide this and show the page??

Just because I modified the html and I have both email and password inputs
for login in the listinfo page :)
So it would be better if users don't see the login form on the options-page,
it doesn't suit with the rest!!

If you just want to replace the "Authentication failed." error message

Oh, such a shame!! And make a simple redirect in case of login-error??

Thank you !!
