Minimalizes the Login Status so that it only shows the user's avatar and behaves like a button.


To use this CSSnippet and ensure you are always using the latest version, paste the following code into your site's CSS:

@import url('');


Essentially, this will transform the login status from:


This can be used for those who desire a less obtrusive form of the login info. Minimized to just an avatar, it is still easy to tell if you are logged on while preserving the your personalization. Simply clicking on the avatar reveals the typical list of account options.

Additionally, when logged out, the login status shows an image representing the sign-in action instead.

In order to use this with a custom layout, you must define the login status module with the following:

<div class="login-status">
  [[module LoginStatus]]

This CSSnippet is compatible with the Bootstrap Standard Template.
