This adds a plugin selectable lightbox popup for custom reg originally built by Fusion and updated here by Gillie.
-adds popup lightbox to custom reg
-next version we hope to add an auto launch timer
Gillie's release notes explain how to get a link on your main page to get this baby popping up.
I do not think there is an explaination of how to take the standard reg/login off your bar or mainpage.
Vazco mainpage has an opton for this, as well I beleive his topbar does, so if you have those two plugins you can easily have nothing but a simply link on topbar or a link tab on your main page.
Maybe someone could explain what is involved in getting the login fields off the stock Elgg topbar.
Custom reg - release notes:
- Upload to mod folder and enable.
- Works with custom_index that comes with elgg or the
default index page.
- If you use some kind of custom-topbar or an index page
of your own, you can copy paste the following link wherever
you want a link to your custom registration page:
<?php echo elgg_view('custom_reg/link'); ?>
@Gillie beautiful! I am struggling to theme the popup, but then I struggle to theme anything! I can't find the CSS files for all of it like the width the orginal login box... Trying to shrink everything down to smaller size and also get rid of scroll bars. My scroll bars are in my Vazco lightbox, as that is now my lightbox viewer. I will talk to Michal about getting the scroll bars out.
Anyone know how to theme this thing a little cleaner?
Theming/ CSS styling is not really a big issue if you're comfortable coding around with CSS2/3 attributes and other aspects ;-)
If you're lucky to have the necessary techie background in such areas - you'll be fine; if not.. you'll have a helluva fun hard time trying to figure out the itsy bitsy details to satisfy the sometimes egoistically inclined demands from technology ;-)
As mein freund from Carmel once said... 'A man's gotta know his limitations.."
I noticed that I cannot use mandantory icon upon reg with the popup and also the location map reg when lightboxing. Sigh, I guess pop ups with pop ups don't make so much sense. This however is a great plugin if you want an easy combined login and reg with lightbox effect OFF your main page.
