Building around existing services.
A small project I’m working for a client is an opt-in box that has some text/description and an option to fill out a form and submit to join their mailing list on aweber. Part of the design includes a button to “register with your Facebook account”.
Facebook, aweber, two services inegrating….
The form works great, in fact when you click on the FB button, you can sign in using Facebook via a nice little sized popup I put in there. Bad news, you already have to be signed into Facebook, and aweber’s FB forms don’t allow for you to sign in on the spot. In the event that they’re not signed in, it defaults to the normal sign in form. This is great for some instances, but not all. There should be options for this stuff so that the on-page design isn’t limited to the aweber/Facebook code.
To top it all off, their code doesn’t even work in Opera.
