    Login form (BROKE!!!!) - WP

    I'm rather new to developing so bare with me. I have implemented a login form on my homepage of my site, however, when I go to login - it doesn't actually allow me to login. The end of my url after i select "LOGIN" says the following: "?username=admin&password=admin&submit=+"

    Here is the HTML:
    Code:
    <div id="navbar">
            <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'Primary Menu', 'container' => false,'menu_id' => 'main-nav','depth'=>'2')); ?>
                <div id="login" >
            <?php if (!(current_user_can('level_0'))){ ?>               
            <form>
                <input type="text" name="username" id="username" value="<?php echo wp_specialchars(stripslashes($user_login), 1) ?>" style="padding-left: 2px;" onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue) this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='') this.value=this.defaultValue;" />
                <input type="password" name="password" id="password" style="padding-left: 2px;" onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue) this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='') this.value=this.defaultValue;" />
                <input type="submit" name="submit" value=" " class="loginbutton" />
                    </form>
                    <a class="helpbutton" href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword"></a>
            <?php } else { ?>
            <ul class="admin_box">
                        <li><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/wp-admin/">Dashboard</a></li>
                        <li><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/wp-admin/post-new.php">Write new Post</a></li>
                        <li><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/wp-login.php?action=logout&redirect_to=<?php echo urlencode($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) ?>">Log out</a></li>
                </ul>
            <?php }?>
                </div>
            </div>
    Here is the CSS:
    Code:
    /* Login
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
    #login {
        background-image:url(images/bluenavbg.png);
        height:39px;
        width: 370px;
        float:right;
        margin-right: 0px;
        margin-top: 0px;
    }
    
    form {
        float: left;
        margin-top: 10px;
        margin-left: 20px;
    }
    
    input {
        background:url(images/formbg.png);
        width: 117px;
        height: 20px;
        margin-left: 5px;
        border:none;
        margin-left: 3px;
    }
    
    .loginbutton {
        height: 20px;
        width: 40px;
        margin-left: 5px;
        background:url(images/loginbutton.png);
    }
    .helpbutton {
        height: 20px;
        width: 38px;
        margin-right: 10px;
        background:url(images/helpbutton.png);
        margin-top: 10px;
        float: right;
    }
    
    #login ul {
        float: left;
        color: white;
        padding-left: 55px;
    }
    
    #login li a {
        float: left;
        color: white;
        text-align: center;
    }

    Is this what you are talking about?

    Code:
    <form>
                <input type="text" name="username" id="username" value="<?php echo wp_specialchars(stripslashes($user_login), 1) ?>" style="padding-left: 2px;" onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue) this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='') this.value=this.defaultValue;" />
                <input type="password" name="password" id="password" style="padding-left: 2px;" onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue) this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='') this.value=this.defaultValue;" />
                <input type="submit" name="submit" value=" " class="loginbutton" />
                    </form>
