We do have it on pretty much every page. Once the user is logged the
form gets replaced with a kind of member control panel.

If you look at slashdot.org they do a similar thing with a member login
on each page in the right column - it's doesn't take up too much real
estate.

When I figured out how the form-login-config worked I realised I could
of course do it like you were suggesting, however I really would like
to get it working as is ideally - as that's how the html designed it.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Richard
