log right in, instead of another login page?

We provide a lot of different ways to potentially login: username/email, Facebook, OpenID, etc. It's a bit tricky to try and present all of those options without cluttering up the look of the board index.




Is it possible to just take the login code from the login page/template and put that on every page in the header?

It can be challenging dynamically inserting and executing javascript code (i.e. facebook connect). I'm sure we could handle it with all the default login methods we support, though if someone created a new login method it's possible something might not work properly.

I'll only be using the standard IPB login so hopefully it's not gonna be a problem just copying the login code into the header.

I'd like to be able to login without being redirected to a login page. The slide quick login looks interesting, but I don't want to have to click to make it slide. I want to be able to type in my login name and password without having to click around. But I can understand that it's hard to incorporate all the different login methods. Maybe IPS can come up with a solution nevertheless. If not I'll be able to live without it though :)

Clicking to view the login screen (drop down) isn't that big of a deal really. It hides until needed. That said, I wouldn't be opposed to have a traditional login (user name/password) on each screen, to be more inviting for people to sign-in.

The reason I thought about this was I want the log in process to be simpler. Just type in your name/password without that 1 extra link. The sliding hook adds complexity to the whole page which is not exactly what I wanted.

You're right that it isn't a big deal, Wolfie. But for me clicking a button to make it slide out or clicking a button to get redirected to a login page isn't much of a difference.

If those fields to enter your user name and password were visible right away users wouldn't have to look around as much to find the place where they have to login. At least that is my opinion. Once a user knows where he has to login it's not that much of an issue anymore - but it would be more comfortable to not have to make that extra click nevertheless :)
