    Hi

    I would prefer to use the Login Widget in the header of my site, rather than in a sidebar.

    Currently the widget is displaying the information in a stack with the boxes extending across the full width of the header:

    Login
    [_______________________________________]
    Password
    [_______________________________________]
    [Login button]

    Which file do I need to edit please to remove the linebreaks so as to get a linear display likte this:

    Login [__________] Password [___________] [Login button]

    Many thanks

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately it made no difference, so I'll have to have a rethink.

    Don't forget to delete browser cache as you might still be viewing old version of the page.

    You had my hopes raised for a moment, but alas, no joy.

    Removing the linebreaks and paragraphs didn't do the trick as I had thought - it's been a few years since I've got my hands dirty with code so I am a bit ring rusty and am probably missing something blindingly obvious.

    Does anyone have any suggestions how I can achieve the linear layout described above please? My site is a full width page on the home page so the option of placing the login widget in the sidebar is a non-starter. But displaying full width login boxes when placed in the header is also not an option...

    Can you post up site address so can see the actual page?

    I guess it is matter of some CSS rules eg:
    Code:
    #loginform {
        overflow:hidden;
    }
    #loginform label,
    #loginform input {
        float:left;
    }

    Sorry for not getting back...

    I abandoned the idea once I discovered that the theme I am using has a pop-up WP login lightbox which was very easy to edit using the details from widget_login_form.phtml.
