Re: Login moved from sidebar to admin bar



If you’re using a child theme of the default BP theme, use this tidbit to remove the login widget from the sidebar:

To add the login form to the BuddyBar, you’ll need to create a function that outputs the login form and then you’ll need to hook it to the BuddyBar.

Here’s some sample code that you can add to your theme’s functions.php:

function my_login_bar() {
// basically a copy of the login form from the BP sidebar
<form name="login-form" id="sidebar-login-form" class="standard-form" action="<?php echo site_url( 'wp-login.php', 'login' ) ?>" method="post">
<label><?php _e( 'Username', 'buddypress' ) ?><br />
<input type="text" name="log" id="sidebar-user-login" class="input" value="<?php echo attribute_escape(stripslashes($user_login)); ?>" /></label>

<label><?php _e( 'Password', 'buddypress' ) ?><br />
<input type="password" name="pwd" id="sidebar-user-pass" class="input" value="" /></label>

<p class="forgetmenot"><label><input name="rememberme" type="checkbox" id="sidebar-rememberme" value="forever" /> <?php _e( 'Remember Me', 'buddypress' ) ?></label></p>

<input type="submit" name="wp-submit" id="sidebar-wp-submit" value="<?php _e('Log In'); ?>" tabindex="100" />
<input type="hidden" name="testcookie" value="1" />
// the magic that hooks your my_login_bar() function to the BuddyBar
add_action( 'bp_adminbar_menus', 'my_login_bar', 2);

Keep in mind, you’ll need to style the form to make it look nice in the admin bar, but that should get you started.
