When someone is NOT logged in and they hit the Login / Register link at the top-right menu, it will popup a new window.

Does anyone know how to stop the popup from appearing and instead have it go to the full screen please-log-in URL?

I don't really like the popup because it shows the login for registered users at the top and for screens with smaller resolutions you don't see the registration area.  Some customers might not see the registration area below and might not know that they can scroll down to it.

I would rather have the login / registration appear on a full screen (like all of the other pages).  This way the customer is more likely to see the registration area.

I believe I removed it by replacing that menu section in the header.php with my own custom links to the login and the customer area pages.

But keep in mind the following scenario. Let's say a potential buyer has been browsing and searching your site for the one image he wants to buy. Redirecting him from this image page to a login/register page might not be the best idea. A popup window which will disappear after login/registration is probably more sales efficient.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that.

I believe that (by default) the registration redirects to a WordPress Admin Profile page, so that is already an issue.

At least the customer will see the area that he needs to fill out for registration.  With the popup, the customer might not see where he needs to register and leave in frustration.
