Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Register / Login / Lost password forms in sidebar, conflict with other widge

So after much research and several failed attempts, I finally succeeded in placing the register / login / password recovery forms in the sidebar in a nice tabbed format, as per the instructions here.

Essentially, this tutorial instructs WP users how to pull the code for the login / register / password recovery forms out of WP-Login.php and place it in the theme. It also includes JQuery to make the tabs switch between the three forms, as well as custom css.

Everything is working well, EXCEPT for the fact that the widgets in the sidebar are acting funky with the forms. Here is a screenshot of the issue:

This shot shows the logged in user panel. You can see how the Pages widget is acting weird underneath the form code. Here is a screenshot of the problem when a user is not logged in:

Here is the code as it exists in my header.php file. I placed it before the left sidebar area, as Flynn suggested in this post:

PHP Code:

    <!-- Main Body -->    
    <tr id="bodyrow">

        <?php if ( $left_col == "on" ) { ?>
        <!-- Left Sidebar -->
        <td id="left">
<div id="login-register-password">

    <?php global $user_ID$user_identityget_currentuserinfo(); if (!$user_ID) { ?>

    <ul class="tabs_login">
        <li class="active_login"><a href="#tab1_login">Login</a></li>
        <li><a href="#tab2_login">Register</a></li>
        <li><a href="#tab3_login">Forgot?</a></li>
    <div class="tab_container_login">
        <div id="tab1_login" class="tab_content_login">

            <?php $register $_GET['register']; $reset $_GET['reset']; if ($register == true) { ?>

            <p>Check your email for the password and then return to log in.</p>

            <?php } elseif ($reset == true) { ?>

Yeah... *smiles sheepishly* After I wrote this post I kept fiddling with it and deleting the call for the gravatar fixed everything. Who would have known?
