Faster login with bootstrap modal

Recommended Posts

I got on the hunt for a bootstrap modal login for my OSC shop, thought it might be a good and thoroughly modern idea, and came across this discussion. 

The discussions here highlight important issues with modal logins, primarily the SSL and the redirects, if I am not mistaken?  Considering that most of the posts here go back a couple of years, I was wondering if any progress has been made to resolve these issues?  And/or, what is the current best practices regarding modal logins?  Has/will it become SOP, or has it been abandoned and just not a good thing to do for whatever reasons?

One thought I had about the SSL issue was to have a two part login...start by getting the email address, then when they continue, redirect to an HTTPS page for the password.  Have not tried to implement this yet.  Not sure if I (or my customers) would like the look and feel.   But any comments about the idea would be appreciated.

Best practice is to have entire site SSL when using modal login as discussed in this and other threads (your entire site should be SSL regardless). Use files I last uploaded in this thread (not tested on latest osCommerce bootstrap versions, too many too list :)).

Keep it simple, 2 part login defeats the purpose of have modal login.
