Popup Login

What a great space saver. It just works... select the template for the login block and you're done. Super simple!

Would have been nice to have a few more custom template designs and a 'remember me' option.

Otherwise it's a great add-on!

Thanks for another great FREE add-on!

A good login experience for users

Overall a good login experience for users, but not quite perfect. It does the job, but misses the 'keep me logged in' checkbox of the regular login page. This could be because it works on top of the login block, which also lacks the checkbox.

Popup login embeds the jQuery fancybox plugin within its view.js file, which can cause arguments with other add-ons that also use fancybox. Not a fault with popup login, just something for developers to be aware of.

hi john,
a couple things you should be aware of.
1) as a custom template for the login block, popup login lacks a controller.php file which would be needed for the keep me logged in feature- you might want to try asking that question in the login block forum, and not here, as custom templates only modify the look.
2) You are certainly right as far as the view.js file, custom templates cannot use the addHeaderItem method and so cannot register files- there is an ongoing discussion on this in the community leaders forum.
Thanks for the review and feedback!

Really useful block

Such a neat block, removes the need for a login box clogging up your page design, very simple to use too.

Nice one 12345j, thanks for this addon.
