Im using the code as posted on the website below, to create a hard coded login form.
What would be the best way of incorperating some validation with this or using the default wordpress error messages?
the whole point in hard coding the form is that the user isnt taken away from the content to the default wp-login.php page throughout the login process.

Why not just use
wp_login_form()? (Codex ref)
