ok, I've gone into the security tab in the site root and set 'view' to
'authenticated' whilst de-selecting aquire. However, using the password that
gets me into the overall 8080/manage doesn't work. Also the front page still
comes up if you cancel the login box and the page displays without css. This
shouldn't happen with view set to authenticated.
