Login without leaving the page

Reported by: lemon-head Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Legacy Resolved
Component: BW Profile Keywords: login


When using BeWelcome, one has to login every 1 hour or so. This is because we assume that you are often just a guest on the computer, and we want to avoid others using your account.

Unfortunately, for every login you have to open a new page, and then navigate back to the page you were originally viewing (unless you use background tabs).

To speed this up, it would be cool to have the login on the page itself.

  • One possibility would be to have login fields directly on the page, instead of the "login" link.
    • This would work best if the login page would redirect you to the page you were viewing (non-trivial I think).
    • Problem: Design! The login textfields will aesthetically bite with the search field.
  • Another possibility is to let the login fields pop up by javascript, when you click the "login" link.
    • For js disabled, we would still have the normal login.

  • AJAX login: don't reload any full page, minimal communication with the server..
    • this is totally non-trivial!
    • for instance, in the forum, the login script would need to add a "new post" button, and topics that were previously hidden because they're non-public.

To make this not too complicated, we should maybe proceed in smaller steps. The ajax login thing is maybe a bit too heavy for the start.
