Just dont tell me that you are using IE6
Well, basicly you can put anything in the panel, and user doesnt have to be loged in
, but you will have just one panel - the one where is log in and sign up..
But you can use one panel to login or sign up, and when he is loged in, there is another panel with 3 fields to put what you need..
I am not a coder, so I cant code this just to check modules in backend ang get this in frontend, but you can manualy add whatever you want there...(I put preferences page, but you can place some droplets- or even transform anynews snippet into droplet and put it there..)
I will try tomorrow to put another section block in the panel to be displayed when you are loged in, and see if it works
just my crazy ideas
