Trying to log in with JavaScript disabled does not work. Using a Stack Exchange email and password, the "Log in" button does nothing. This is likely because the <input type="button"> instead of standard HTML type="submit", which doesn't trigger a POST.

However, pressing Enter does submit the form and let me login.

    Disabling Javascript will sure break many things. The answer given here is somewhat related: meta.stackexchange.com/a/128404/254554 – HackerKarma Aug 30 '15 at 19:28

    Maybe the question is different, the answer on the duplicate is a 100% fit – rene Aug 30 '15 at 19:33

    @Rachie The other answer is sufficient for this, but please consider leaving this question in place (ie not delete) even if closed as dupe, as this is a good signpost leading to the other answer for others to find it :) – James Aug 30 '15 at 19:48
  • I keep seeing posts about how basic functionality should work without javascript. This isn't about extra UI elements, but something completely essential to the use of the site. There's no sense in breaking such basic HTML conventions for the sake of replacing it with buggy javascript. – Rachie Aug 30 '15 at 20:05

    Not dupe, not being able to log in at all is x100 worse than not being able to add a new OpenID provider when already logged in. Voted to reopen. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Aug 30 '15 at 20:49
  • Trying to use the sites without JS is most certainly not recommended. Having said that, not being able to log in at all is suboptimal. We'll be fixing this. – Adam Lear Sep 3 '15 at 17:01
  • @Adam still not fixed. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Mar 14 '16 at 12:43
