SlipJaq - A Drupal 6 module for a sliding login panel
This Drupal module provides a pull-down sliding panel for logging in and creating a new account. It provides a prominent login/join prompt on (almost) every page and, provided that the login succeeds, the current page doesn’t change.
There are several configuration options, including allowing the slider to be placed within a block, to change the title text, and to specify an image/icon to display. Normally, the panel is not displayed on login pages, as such pages duplicate the functionality of this module, but that restriction, too, is configurable.
In addition to basic configuration, this module allows for complete theming control using normal theming hooks, a single theme template file and CSS.
I created this module inspired by and using as a basis “Nice & Clean Sliding Login Panel built with jQuery” by web designer Jérémie Tisseau, of Web-Kreation. He has distributed his work under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 3.0 (GNU GPLV3), and I also distribute it under the same license (as I must with any GPLV3-derived work, if I am to distribute it at all).
(This web page also serves to demonstrate the module. The panel tab is at the upper right corner of this page.)
