I've recently been working on some Web 2.0 applications (and partially modeling them after Vanilla) but I've hit a snag with AJAX: The forms can only be submitted once. Does anyone know how to enable multiple submissions? Here's my current code:

<input type="button" value="Log In" onClick=" login();" />

As you can imagine, this becomes a major issue when users need to revise information, such as on a login screen. Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.

    We'd need to see what login(); does.
