WordPress Sidebar Login 2 – Optimised for wordpress 2.6
At last! My sidebar login widget has evolved into ‘Sidebar Login’ which has both a widget and a template tag to allow you to have a login form in the sidebar of your wordpress powered blog.
It lets users login, and then redirects them back to the page they logged in from rather than the backend, it also shows error messages. Read more for more information and the download link.
Sidebar login is self explanatory really; it allows users to login to wordpress from the sidebar! This plugin requires wordpress 2.6 (that is all I have tested) in order to function; this is because wordpress 2.6 has a modified login system to older versions.
You can track changes to the plugin in the wordpress plugin SVN.
