Hi,

I have added Login as a new top menu item using langcommonlogin. However, instead of just showing "login", I would like the button to have the login/logout toggle that appears as standard elsewhere. Can anyone tell me how I do this please?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I see this <%loginlogouttoggle%> as the function used in the default header. Have you tried playing around with that in the menu system? You may have to hand-code that portion of the menu.

I haven't played with this but am curious to learn what ultimately works.

Regards,

Hi elammers,

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried pasting various permutations of this into the site menu setup which didn't work. Would you happen to know where I would find the code behind these menu items please?

Thanks Kidd, this put me on a new tack. I found this loginlogouttoggle subroutine in shopproductsubs.asp which I assume I somehow I have to link in with the menu:

"Sub loginlogouttoggle
'VP-ASP 6.08 - restore cookie if enabled so this displays correctly
if getconfig("xcookielogin") = "Yes" then
RestoreCustomerDetailsCookie
end if

if Getsess ("lastname") > "" then%>
<a href="shopcustadminlogin.asp?new=yes" class="small-black-text"><%=getLang("langcommonlogout")%></a>
<%else%>
<a href="shopcustadminlogin.asp" class="small-black-text"><%=getLang("langcommonlogin")%></a>
<%end if
End sub"

I can't figure this out though. I tried some weird things like pasting the code into the menu admin and then into the login button code in that same file but all that did was give an error message when I tried to launch any site page. I'm thinking I need to include it somewhere in the code indicated by Kidd above or perhaps somewhere else in that file but have not really got a clue which bits to use where. If anyone has any further thoughts it would be much appreciated. It sounded so easy ...

Thanks in advance.

basically what you need to do to call loginlogouttoggle is
(HTML TAG)<%loginlogouttoggle%>(HTML TAG)

something like
<td align="center"><%loginlogouttoggle%></td>

I think I'm probably being dense but where do you mean I should post that code please? I tried it as the caption for langcommonlogin which did not work so assume I am still on the wrong track.

Thanks for your time Kidd.

I have moved it to the horizontal navigation bar so I am trying to handle it within the site menu administration.

if you are trying to handle it through admin site menu it will never work well, i think you cant but who knows maybe someone else knows how to

to be able to call the loginlogouttoggle subroutine you will need to do some coding, thats the only way i can think of

Thanks for your time in trying to help Kidd. I'll put this to one side now and maybe revisit it after my site is launched.
