    I understand using the short codes and setting up a PAGE that includes the username login box. …but is there a way to add the username login the default forum. I have my forumn set to the default location /forums/ and I’d like to add the username/password login to this page (in the right sidebar). Is there an easy way to do that?

    I understand widgets and sidebars but I how is
    /forums/ rendered. It is not a page, post or blog. I don’t understand how to add a sidebar to this.

    My work around is to create a PAGE and add the forumns via a shortcode but it seems like there should be an option to add to /forums/ (of course I am sure I am missing something simple)

    Thank you Sceko. Is there a way to add it to the top of the page rather than sidebar?

    What is your site url? I can give you some suggestions on where to place the code for a login-box so it shows up on the top of a page.

    Also, if you prefer, you can build your forum site index using shortcode / page method… this would give you flexibility of having your default theme sidebar, etc. available to you.

    Not sure? Check out our updated step by step guide that covers the two methods for creating a forum index page:

    There is a div in your header.php file that contains the top search box. This could be modified to add a login box or login link (better, IMHO).  Since I don’t have access to your theme files, you will have to tweak the css a bit, and put it into your style sheet (I’m showing it inline here just by example):

    <div id=”top_area”><section class=”widget widget_search” id=”search-4″><a href=”/wp-login.php” style=”float:left; display:inline-block;margin-right:20px”>Login</a> <form action=”http://aftertasty.com” id=”searchform” method=”get” style=”width:400px;”>
