      Would you please explain about the code?. I do not know to how to change default file format.

  • Hi,

    This blog post has saved my life, many thanks for sharing.

    One question, I used your files and all works well when accessing the native Magento login page. However, if I embed the login.phtml file like so:

    {{block type="core/template" template="customer/form/login.phtml"}}

    It does not render the mini.register. Any idea why it seems to ignore the getChild under this scenario?

    Many thanks

    Thanks for the helpful tutorial. The login form works for me but for some reason the “create an account” button is dead and goes no where.

    When I look at the console I see an error:
    TypeError: element is null
    if (element.addEventListener) {

    I even tried implementing your exact code but the button is still dead. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

      Figured it out. The problem is in your login.phtml file.

      The javascript in the bottom is:
      var registerForm = new VarienForm('form-validate-register', true);
      Needs to be:
      var registerForm = new VarienForm('form-validate', true);

  • Thanks for sharing the valuable blog.

    It needs little more modification.

    The create account stops working after changes the phtml in such a way.
    So can you just tell me what changes are require to make everything working as it and just changes the layout…

    Thanks in advance

    Hey dude, I tried doing your suggestion but it did not turn out so great as I hoped. I have done everything as you explained but ended up having a login or create an account on my frontpage. I tried changing all my local.xml and login.phtml files with the originals and clean the cache but still have it on my frontpage. I really sort it out asap, and hope you can help me with the issue. the website is: fashionfactory.bg Thanks in advance 🙂

    Can you please explain this line…Sorry bro i don’t know coding much….””Unset of child block: ‘customer_form_login’ and using different name:
    ‘customer_form_register2′ for the corresponding block is important else
    you will get double login block.””
