Archived ⇒ Small login box - is there such a block available?


Hi folks, I'm looking for a small login block, one that just asks for username and password and has a register link.

Is there one available anywhere?

Thanks in advance.

It comes with the deafult installation.

oops sorry for the mistake. Nothing yet but should not be that difficult to make!

Besides take that 'New pictures' block off your site or reduce the number of images it shows. It surely is blowing your entire homepage out of proportions. Will look better if you follow my suggestion! Very Happy

Any pointers on where to start in making such a block?

The newset images thing is messing up your browser? Looks fine her with IE7 and Firefox, I must admit though I was thinking abut moving it anyway, I think I'll do that right now.

I use Opera. Could be a selective problem but removing would be the best bet for you as people out there do use Opera.

As for the block open the block in which the Login portion is availible now and put it into a new block. Simple as that! But do not forget to clean it up from the default User Block after you are done!

Or here is another thing that you can try.

Refer to this thread and put in a login bov in your header. Then make the User Block viewable only to your registered members and that should fix your problem for good without having to work on it every now and then after every new upgrade.

I did find that thread about the header earlier when searching for an answer but I would prefer a small login box as the top box on the left in truth.

I just took a look at the code for the user info block and I have to say it's beyond my small PHP skill to modify it, any kind soles out there able to do it for me? I would be eternaly thankful!

I will look into it later in the day. You can keep watching the topic and I will submit it here if I am able to pull it off.

Thanks very much, just something very basic, the authentication boxes and a register link, no need for avatar, welcome message or anything.

I'll buy you a beer if you ever come to the small island I live on Smile

I don't even provide a login block on my visitor's page, just a simple link in the header, with access to the simple login block for registered users, but the block can just as easily be given visitor access.

That was pretty fast Phoenix. That should cool you off phanganparties! Very Happy

Yeah, real fast - two years old.

Two years old technically but you made it today! That is what I meant.
