I need to display the login form in a modal window when a user clicks a link on my website. I am doing that using jquery ui dialog currently.

However, once the user logs in, i don't want a page refresh instead i just want the modal window to get reloaded with some content.

how do i achieve this?

  • Have you tried ctools ? There is an example that does that.

Modal forms module might help you.

Modal forms make use of the modal feature in the ctools module to open some common forms in a modal window.

Supported forms:

  • Log in (modal_forms/nojs/login) Request new password
  • (modal_forms/nojs/password) Create new account
  • (modal_forms/nojs/register) Contact (modal_forms/nojs/contact)
  • Comment (modal_forms/%ctools_js/comment/reply/%node) Webform

Use Lightbox module and mention rel in the url tag like below i mentioned

<a href="search.php" rel='lightframe'>Search</a>

you can see a live example in my site www.richtown.ae(click Mortage Calculator in bottom)

or you can use popup module to achieve this.


The Colorbox Module provides this functionallity.
