Sitewide forum login/logout added

Postby socheat on Tue Aug 16, 2005 8:49 am

We've had some people request the ability to login to the forums, without actually coming to the forums, from anywhere on the CDRLabs site. So, I've added links in the upper right of the navigation bar (where Home, News, Reviews, etc are). It will display "Login", if you aren't currently logged in, and "Logout" if you're logged out of the forums.

When you click "Login" a little dialog will appear beneath the nav bar, with the login fields. The "Remember Me" option is the same as "Log me on automatically" in the phpBB login. This little pop-up dialog uses a small bit of javascript, so if you have javascript disabled in your browser, it may not work.

"Logout" is pretty self explanatory.

In both cases, it will bring you back to the page you were on. So, if you were reading a review, and you clicked "Login", you should be brought back to that review.

These navbar links don't show up in the actual forums yet because, as anyone who runs a phpBB forum knows, it's a pain in the ass to modify these themes with anything more than just HTML.

Let me know if you have any problems.
