Isn't there a way to do this that "works" on "all" templates? (like perhaps, you make us an Extension called "Login-Dropdown" we can use for all templates).
I've seen hundreds of requests on this and it just doesn't seem to work as planned. A Link to the Login Form is easy. Trying to get that darn dropdown to work as expected is a witch.
Could make your days less complicated with repeat requests AND ours much easier.
