Treehouse Magazine Login

Category: Component, Editorial

Treehouse Magazine is a magazine about the web.

They implement a nice login component in the top right corner.

If you want to login, signup, etc you can do it from that widget. Very simple, the forms are just changed around dynamically depending on your use case.

We are seeing a log of login components.

Google AdSense kicks in login to the background:

Doesn’t work for me.. The thing scrolls up again before I can click the ‘create one’ button :-)

Once more: the first thing that meets the eye is a script error…

Dominik – if you stop back to read this, please let me know what browser you are using.

Lon – thanks for pointing out the script error. We still have work to do on the login, so we’ll fix it with the next update.

I have the same problem as Dominik. I’m using Firefox 1.5, BTW. Works fine in IE and not at all in Netscape 7.1

Cool, treehouse login actually works with Javascript turned off. The downside is that the address of a page is changed. From my point of view the login form does not behave like a real component when Javascript turned off, because it responds with a whole page and pollutes browser page history.

Also, in Firefox + Javascript on, when I open login panel and click on “Login” again, the panel rolls up (expected) and immediately rolls down again (unexpected).
