Is there a login plugin as found on most CMS software? (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I've searched but didn't come across what I'm looking for, a sidebar login box such as found on Drupal, Joomla, etc.

    If anyone has ever found one, I sure would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

    Thanks,
    Gene

    you mean something beyond the "Meta" module? Couldn't you set up a CSS style that is in the shape of a box and use the code below?

    <h2>Meta</h2>

      <?php wp_register(); ?>

    • <?php wp_loginout(); ?>
    • WordPress
    • <?php wp_meta(); ?>

    Thanks for the answer but I guess I didn't make myself clear, what I meant was a login box as you'll find on CMS and forums instead of a separate page.

    A plugin (widget) in the sidebar called "Log In" and would have input fields for username, password, links for a logout, register and lost password.

    Have you tried just putting the form in the sidebar?

    <form name="loginform" id="loginform" action="wp-login.php" method="post">...

    Thanks, I'll give it a try...

    Wonder if that could be turned into a plugin...

    Cheers,
