    OK. I will be straight with you - I don't have your level of expertise in this but I kinda know my way around, albeit at a basic level.

    I just set up a sports website

    http://www.halftimefulltime.com

    I'm just playing about with it to see how it operates. Fact is I don't like my sign in or registration forms going to a generic wordpress page.

    I prefer the pop up way as it looks more professional and does not allow users to leave the page. So I downloaded your modal zip

    Activated it. Choose the theme. Now what ?

    I have searched through all the questions on the forum and they all seem to be about problems after it has installed.

    So how do I get it to install it so I can use it for logins and registrations ?

    Hi denilson200,

    The easiest methods are with the widget or the shortcode. The last is with PHP which requires knowledge in the language to use this.

    When you have installed and activated the plugin through the plugins area in WordPress, you will find an options page under Settings. If you want to use either the widgets or the Short code, make sure enable them in the setting window.

    When those are enabled, you can visit appearance > widgets for the widget option, or you can edit any page or post you wish and use the Shortcode generator in the WYSIWYG editors toolbar (the icon is a picture of a lock)

    One more question.

    I am using the serenaded login link. So basically it has a "Sign In" and "Register" button at the top of my theme

    Is there any way when you press my "Sign In" or "Register" button on my theme then it automatically goes to your WP Modal pop up login not the generic wordpress login ?

    Indeed this is a great plugin!
    With 2 complementary features it would be perfect!

    Please make it possible to add the login as a link to a menu.
    In addition of adding a return link, I would like the plugin to remember the page I was when a login attempt was started.
    And use that page as the return link once the login is successful (or not - doesn't matter).
