I'm a Joomla newbie, and I'm trying to set up a site to require login access to certain articles. Simply setting the article's Access Level to Restricted makes it disappear rather than prompting for a login. I can't figure out how to make a login page because I can't find any menu items or documentation pertaining to mod_login.

I want to set at least one page to require login access. Where do I start?

The Mod-login is found:

Extensions -> Module Manager -> "Login Form"

From there you should be able to choose which files/sections that you want to be prompted for the users name and password.
