New Forum Feature - Inline Login

This is really of interest only to those of you with blogs feeding comments to the nuponuq forum. Currently most such blogs display both a Login and Register link (and occasionally some prompt text asserting something like "You must login to post in the forum").

Inline login allows the comment posting code (Post New Message) to detect when the user is not logged in and redirect the user to the login page. After login is finished, the code remembers that a comment post was being attempted and redirects once again to continue the process.

This means you can remove the Login link and prompt (and probably the Register link as well since registration is possible from the login page; note, however, that since registration involves sending an email with temporary password, the comment process doesn't continue if the user has to register).

So clean up your blog articles today!
