Hello,

I am having a difficult time with SCLogin. I don't understand what you mean by this statement: "Simply select a Joomla menu item to display and the SCLogin module will show it in a fabulous way to your users after they're logged in. No need for a separate "Registered" menu module - have your logout area and user menu combined into one.

All I want to do is have a login button and register like you do on your site in the same area as the menu. I'm assuming that you have a "Login" in the main menu and somehow select SClogin to launch.

Can someone explain what needs to be done to use this correctly?

Thanks,
Robert

Robert,
Please check out our Common Support Questions section for the SCLogin module. The 2nd question in that group should explain more about how our site works and what may work for you.

I hope that helps,
Alex

Thanks. I appreciate the information, but I have to say I am extremely frustrated with the documentation and finding updated information on fixing this almost to the point where I am considering not renewing my subscription.

Let me ask, what framework does sclogin work with without issues. I have been working with Gantry and there is always CSS issues, aligning anything to do with login. I gave up on that as it looked awful and am now using the T3 Framework. CSS is great, but if I try to login from the menu, the popup doesn't load. When I place the module in a sidebar, and go to another page, it loads and pops up. The only template it seems to work without any issues is the ones that come with Joomla.

I looked at a previous post dating back a while ago and looked for the !important to be removed in the all the css files and cannot find it.

Would appreciate if we could get this working. Feel like I am spinning my wheels.

Thanks,

Robert

There are many sites the use RocketTheme, Gavick, T3 and many other template frameworks and the SCLogin module without any issues. If you can point us to a link where we can see things configured and a description of specifically what isn't working and if there's a page where it is working, that as well, that will help us understand and diagnose the problem.

Finally, if your have any optimization extensions or features in your template enabled to compress and minimize CSS and Javascript, please disable those as they make it more difficult to understand where problems are occurring when enabled.

Thanks,
Alex

Please go to 162.144.66.28/beuavsmart/

If you try the link in the menu it doesn't work and if you go to a page like typography in the side bar it pops up not doesn't look good. This is straight out of the box setup. Also the site is in development mode and optimize css is turned off

Thanks,

Robert

If you try the link in the menu it doesn't work

The SCLogin is being enclosed in the following span, which already has the data-target attribute set. Our suspicion is that the tag is interfering with the Javascript which sets up the click handler to open the popup. If you view the modal in the sidebar of the typography page, that modal popup works correctly and isn't enclosed in a span with a data-target.
<span class=" separator" data-target="#">...</span>

if you go to a page like typography in the side bar it pops up not doesn't look good

For starters, it looks like one of our css files is not being loaded. Is JFBConnect enabled/installed on your system, or just SCLogin? Can you try going into JFBConnect and enabling the 'Load jQuery/Bootstrap' option to see if the sc_bootstrap.css gets included on the page?

Once the file is loaded, you can add a couple styles to the theme to get started and then go from there.
#sclogin-username, #sclogin-passwd{
height:28px;
}
.sclogin .inputbox {
display:inline;
}

I believe the reason the data-target attribute set is because it being loaded into using modules anywhere.

I tried placing the code you suggested into the templates css, but still nothing.

Thanks,

Try following this tutorial for loading from Modules Anywhere. When I do it this way in Joomla 3.3.6, I do not have the toggle:

On your site, when I viewed the HTML source code, the data-target was specified right before the comment that signified the start of Modules Anywhere. I think that code is coming from your template or menu module.

It looks like your site is offline now. When it's back up, we can try to help with the CSS styles to figure out what's wrong there.

Thanks,
Alex

I've had to reload the site and managed to get it working with JV Framework. This is not the solution though and to Mel's and your suggestion to go to a third party to get your product working is quite frankly unreasonable. This is your module and you send your users to a site that shows how to set up a search bar using Modules Anywhere. Your instructions on your site are cryptic and don't explain the process. You should be including detailed instructions so that time isn't wasted.

Having said this, Gantry and JV Framework pops the box using the {module sclogin} placed in the title of the menu link. T3 Framework doesn't work and even after reinstalling T3 Framework Modules Anywhere and your package, 4 times I could not get it to work. Also the CSS styling is the same between Gantry and JV Framework and it looks awful.

Lastly, no one in this forum who is a user of your solution has the time to sift through the pages of suggestions to style the components. Is there a place in your documentation where it tells us where the css is for sclogin, the modal popup and all the other components? As an example, www.sourcecoast.com/sclogin/documentation/ it talks in general about themes, changelog and FAQ's, but who can guess where you can change styling? Am I missing something?

What is the appropriate file(s) to change as I have tried to find them and looked at this post, www.sourcecoast.com/forums/non-commercia...ed-appearance#p49118 and the response from Mel points to a link that doesn't work. When she say's "Remove this block around line 88" from what file?

As you can tell, I'm losing patience, so would appreciate better assistance.

Thanks,

Robert
