shadowbox login page
That's a workaround - I was able to get it to work by setting the Shadowbox player attribute to iframe. When it was set to HTML all I got was the URL displayed in the shadowbox.
I wonder if the onload could be put in a conditional script on the pages that check user login so that we can open the login page in a shadowbox without having to be sent to the login_loader page (that's what I call it).
Meanwhile, after I log in, I'm taken to the user Profile page as designed but then when I navigate back to the protected page via a link I put on the login_loader, it bounces me back to the login_loader page. Apparently I'm not being logged in even though the user profile page shows up after I click the Login button. Could this have to do with the login occurring in a child page instead of a parent page?
