I have the FB mod installed and it is working fine. But I would like to move it further down the login page. right now, it sits between the user/pass and the login button. i think that this is confusing.
so i am using firebug to track down where this placement is occurring. this is a great exercise for me and when i accomplish it i’ll post how i did it.
this is that I have so far. the login block comes from the core user module. specifically, the user.module file. look for the user_login_block function.
then the fbconnect.module file appends it code to the user_login_block function. I can change the weight of the output and move the login stuff above the regular login, but not below it completely, which is where i would rather have it. i have a post on drupal. i’ll update again tomorrow.
well, after i finished up some PHP stuff, i decided to have another go at the weight of that element. I didn’t think it would work. but, when i made it a negative number, it rose to the top. I had made it a 10 but it stayed in the same place. so, i made it 100. still the same. i thought, what the hell, and i made it 1000. and it went right where i wanted it to go. i don’t know what to say. i’m a little annoyed with myself over that. but i learned a few things about drupal architecture and inheritance. and i think that if you know those thing really well in drupal, you’ll be in a good position to do real customization work.
