Thanks for your answer! One thing I don't understand is about the XFO headers.
Do we have to add them or is it a condition that we don't have them.

There are some security considerations if you're going to do that:
* We disable site and user .js on Special:UserLogin, so a malicious admin
* We disable framing the page to prevent various redressing attacks
* If your site is mixed http/https, there is special handling on that page
to ensure the user enters/submits their password over https.
* If you're using CentralAuth or another SSO system, then we check if
you're logged in on Special:UserLogin, to work around some browser cookie
So it's *usually* not a good idea to create your own login widget. But if
you're running your site entirely under https, have a limited number of
admins, add XFO headers on all pages, and don't use any SSO system, then go
