Provide link to signup window


There are a number of uses where I want to provide a link that, when clicked, opens up the same dialogue window that the Sign In button generates. Simply put, a number of users get confused about how to sign up for a new account (I know, I know, the button is right there). So to make it even easier for them, it would be nice to be able to say, for instance, “CLICK HERE to create a new account” in certain Topics.

Is this possible? If so, how?

Yes, this is possible. If you visit

(while logged out) you’ll get the same signup dialogue box that the signup button creates. This also works for the login dialogue box. So you can use something like

and you’ll get the login form.


I appreciate this excellent, elegant solution. Thank you!
