Idea: Modal / Jquery Popup for Login

May 21, 2012 at 7:50 PM

Hey,

I was thinking it would be cool to create an option for the login. When the SignOn link is hit we show a popup window (modal or jquery) that shows the sign-in options, such as user, password, forgot password, and maybe the Facebook Login option.

What do you think?

I've tried implementing that before and couldn't get it to work, but I was still an extreme novice with Orchard at that point. I might give it another go now that I'm more familiar with developing within Orchard. I would prefer to use the Bootstrap modal, but it's pretty limited in what you can do with the popup. The other option is jQuery UI Dialog which has a lot more options.

I need to update the theme to Bootstrap 2.0.3, so I'll take a look at that when I get into updating the theme. I'm also trying to work in an automated "mobile" option since Bootstrap has the "responsive" CSS included.
