Fake Login Area

Allows you to display a user login form to nowhere.

Do you want your organization to appear bigger, or more important/legitimate/established than you are right now? The presence of a user login area on your website will help you achieve that effect for your site visitors.

After installing this plugin, simply add the class "flaform" to the desired link. When the user clicks the link, a modal window will appear with a user/password prompt to log in. Of course, the form does nothing and will always claim to "fail" the login, but it still makes it look like you have more to offer!

Huge props to SweetAlert, the awesome popup window that I am using with this plugin.

How do I get the form to appear?

You just need to write a TINY amount of HTML to make use of this plugin. Add the class "flaform" to your desired link. For example, you may have a CMS Page called "log in" or a link on your homepage/sidebar and create a link with the markup such as <a href="#" class="flaform">Log In Now</a>

A login form that doesn't do anything? Seriously?

Believe it or not, this plugin came about after a client legitimately asked for one of these. After discussing with others, I decided this was something that other people may want as well. And it turns out, I was right :)

Can I customize the form?

Soon! Early versions of this plugin just want to put the functionality in your hands, but I plan to allow for all sorts of customizations of the form including colors, all of the text, number of fields, field labels, and more.
