Try adding this to your column_left.php file. I haven't done this but it should work although you may have to enclose it in <tr><td></td></tr>.

Just remember that a login box is not secure - many people do not like that - I think it far better to have a login link that says "Secure Login" (you do have SSL right?)

I know this wasn't directed to me but I do have a few questions about SSL that, hopefully, you or someone else will answer. I don't have an SSL certificate but I am using 2CheckOut. Is this not considered secure enough? Your implication is that all sites should have SSL. Does that really make a difference?

For an ecommerce site I think so - your checkout may be secure, but your account signup and login are not, nor your customers' account pages when they view them - I would run a mile.

 

SSL is cheap - who knows what lost sales may cost?

it's not cheap if you have no startup money and are already on a shoestring.

 

when you get big enough to where a hacker might even consider you worth their effort, then it would be worth it. when you arent even searchable yet and haven't made sales, it's worth putting off.

Thanks for clarifying. :) I'll look into getting one for my site.
