#384 closed new feature (wontfix)

Login form spawned by magic javascript - need layout draft

Reported by: lemon-head Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Legacy Resolved
Component: BW Layout Keywords: login, layout
Cc: micha, matthias

Description

On slashdot.org, digg.com, and many other sites you have a login form that pops up on the page when clicking the 'login' link. This way you can login without leaving the page.

  • on slashdot.org it pops up below the main navi, shifting the rest of the page down
  • on digg.com it replaces the search bar (no shifting) and can be hidden by clicking again on 'login'.

Questions:

  • where on the bewelcome pages would be the place to let the login form pop up?
  • how to hide the form, if you change your mind?
  • extra links for 'I lost my password' etc.
  • avoid aesthetic conflict with the quicksearch box.

To do:

  • discuss?
  • make some drafts (html+javascript)
  • compare / evaluate
  • implement in php on test.bw. (then the 'component' can be changed from 'layout' to 'general')

For drafting: Maybe you can just play around with your local branch of bewelcome, and make screenshots..
