Introducing Login Plugin For Gridbox. More Than Just User Sign In

We decided that everything should be beautiful on Gridbox sites. Therefore, we have solved the problem with the default Joomla login. So, ladies and gentlemen, we bring to your attention the Joomla website builder Gridbox 2.12.17 with a new amazing Login plugin.


Login Plugin — Multifunctional Solution


If we start developing a new plugin, we create it as powerful and functional as possible. Ordinary login is too boring and easy for our team. We didn't stop at creating an average login form.

The Login plugin for Gridbox is not just about username and password fields. The Login plugin is a comprehensive and multifunctional solution for Joomla sites that solves many tasks. The Gridbox Login is not just a plugin. It's also a registration system, password and username recovery, and more.

Flexible Login Settings


The Login plugin comes with a large set of settings, which makes it very flexible and easy to customize for your site. Well, let's take a closer look at the Login plugin settings, and you'll be able to understand what it's capable of.

Login

This option allows you to enable or disable the login form in the Login plugin. Disable login form in Login plugin? What?! Friends, be patient. As noted earlier, the Login plugin is more than just logging into the site.

User Registration

The User Registration option allows you to create an account for a new user. By clicking "Create an account", the user proceeds to fill in the required fields to create an account on the site.

User Redirect

Everything is simple here: the name of the option speaks for itself. Here you enter a page link to which the user will be redirected immediately after authorization or registration on the site.

Social Network Integrations

Registration or login through social networks - what could be easier and faster? This is also available with the Login plugin! Just enable Google Login or Facebook Login in integrations.

Flexible Design Settings

No more gloomy and standard login forms. Now only stylish, easily customizable, and perfectly suited for the Gridbox website registration and login forms.

More Than Just a Login


As you can see, the Login plugin is a complex system that solves the problem not only with the login to the site. This is also account registration, password and username recovery.

Do you need to place the login and registration form on the same page? Or maybe you want to create a registration form on one page and a login form on another? Well, it's easier than you think.

To create a registration form in Joomla website builder Gridbox, add the Login plugin to the page and turn off the Login option. A few clicks and your registration form is ready!

Creating an account, recovering a password and username - everything is done in one form without redirecting to third-party pages. All this makes the plugin user-friendly.


Note! Clicking on the Page View will not display the login form on your site. And this is logical because you are already logged in and editing the page.


Store Login Improvements


As you know, the Gridbox Store App has had a login system for a long time. In today's update, we decided to improve it.

Store login has received several new options:

  • Login and register using social networks Google and Facebook;
  • Protection against bots using standard Joomla plugins reCAPTCHA and Invisible reCAPTCHA;
  • Gridbox password and username recovery instead of standard Joomla.

All Integrations In One Place


Gridbox includes many integrations from Google Maps to social networks. We have concentrated all integrations in one place for your convenience. You can find the integrations section in Gridbox Dashboard ➝ Integrations.

Why did we do this? Login and registration using social networks in Gridbox are available in the Store, Comments, Reviews Apps, and in the Login plugin. Now you don't have to enter the same API Keys in four different places. Optimizing your actions and saving time is the main goal of these changes.
