You know what would be nice, to hide login menu with click on Signin text ;)

ankit said...

Hey Sory, i m noob but wat these code do?


Srinivas Tamada said...


Code for round corners - topright, bottomleft, bottomright

Here's some quick feedback:

Please don't leave the for attribute off of your label tags. You're hurting the Internet every time you do.

Also, writing your code so that clicking on "sign in" with JavaScript disabled would take you to an independent login URL would also be wonderful.

Twitter's sign in drop down does both of these things, by the way.

Hi, feedbacking:
make this, to have use of label tag

[label]Password [input type='password' name="pwd"/][/label]

junal said...

Well, nothing is click-able inside the #sign_box - Any idea?

Srinivas Tamada said...


I did little code modification.

Gustavo said...

if you like to close the box clicking back on Sign In link, you can use the toggle fuction for jquery.

Bob MacNeal said...

I modified the click event on sign_in from show to toggle... so that clicking sign_in toggles sign_box.

Florian said...

I've tried to click the 9lessons.blogspot.com link and it doesn't work because of the close event (i think)! Any suggestions on this?

Fábio Luciano said...

Hi friend,

thanks to accept the modification in the code.

Xanti SS said...

Now tell me, why is jQuery needed here?

Kaido said...

Simple and effective solution :) Super.. I used more advanced solution found at http://aext.net/2009/08/perfect-sign-in-dropdown-box-likes-twitter-with-jquery/ but I belive yours simpler to use :) I used this with Drupal at http://jkvandra.ee

Andrew Woo said...

What if you need to do have people login securely via HTTPS?

Neha said...

Nanosoft said...

Here is the code for closing the box when you click on Sign in:

if ($("#sign_box:visible").length != 0){
else {
return false;
