Connect buttons position

Connect buttons position

I have Orientation set as Side for the Social Button Settings, but after a user logs in the buttons for "Connect this site to your Social network?" always appear on the bottom. How to make them also on the side?

Ok so I'm guessing the answer is "you can't" !

Re: Connect buttons position

Buzzy,
Sorry for the delayed response. Can you explain a little more about what you need? The buttons should show up horizontally when the user is logged in. If they aren't horizontal (all the buttons in a row), let me know, as that would likely mean there's some style in your template that's conflicting.

If I'm wrong, and you're looking for something else, just let me know and we'll gladly help however we can.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: Connect buttons position

Hi and sorry I just saw I hadn't responded to this.  My issue is all around trying to squeeze things into a small space and after a user logs in, they see the layout as per img1.png



What I was trying to get it to look like is shown in img2.png - The orientation is set to Side and Left for the social buttons yet they are underneath the logout button, not to the side of it.


In the end I have "gludged it" by using two copies of the SCLogin module, one set to only show the social buttons and one the logout button (which is how img2.png was created) but I'm wondering if this is likely to cause problems and anyway feels like it is not the "correct" way to do this!

Re: Connect buttons position

Honestly, your solution is absolutely fine. The SCLogin module is meant to be modular and many users do what you are for various reasons (A login button over here, a register button over there, logout button here, social connect buttons there, greeting with avatar somewhere else). This is especially true for having social login buttons for just a few social networks in one location, whereas you may show them all (or with different images) somewhere else.

So, if you have something that works for you, I'd recommend just leaving it that way. If you'd prefer some CSS to keep it all in one module, we can likely help you with that now that we know what you're looking for.. just let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Great, I'm happy to go with as it is.   I suppose my concerns about it messing up something comes from another issue I'm having with using HTTPS, but I will start another thread for that .
