Vanilla Login On Front Of Site

edited June 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Okay so this isn't exactly a single sign on type thing with proxy connect because I currently have no user system on the frontend of my site. I have vanilla embeded into my website and was wondering if there was a way to embed the login form into a sidebar for example?

If not is there any other simple way to go about this. I eventually want to use it to have users leave comments and rate games. I just want to use vanillas user system entirely.

    So is this possible? I am basically trying to create a social arcade and use vanilla as the base and forum for the site. You can see what I have so far at the link below.

    Hmm. I think the best way right now is to have a popup window. You can pass display=popup to entry/signin to have it look more popup friendly.

    Otherwise, you can maybe try copying the html from Vanilla's entry/signin page. You can add a hidden input with with a name of Form/Target to tell Vanilla what page to redirect back to.

    Okay thanks for the suggestion. I will try out maybe using the html from Vanilla's signin page and see how that works. If I can't get that working I will try out the popup and see how that works.

    So I tried a few things out and have another question. First when I got the login embedded into the front of the site it messed up my google search and redirects it into vanilla. Not sure why that is.

    Also if I want to change the login area once logged in do i check the cookies for the vanilla cookies?
