I'm building a log in page but ran into an issue with my nav bar. As you can see the "Log In" button appears in two locations.
What's the best way to approach this? To me it looks odd to have it shown twice, yet its a necessary part of the nav bar.
I can correct this by removing the button for just that page...but then that feels like a complicated solution because it requires modifying template code with an if statement.
What should be done here instead?
A common pattern that is used across the board is the use of only the Login CTA in the nav bar. Once in the login screen, the user is given the option to Sign Up or Register if they didn't have an account.
Keep both the Login and the Sign Up in the nav bar but devalue (not have them look like a button) them. Generally, Login is devalued as Sign Up is a way of inviting new users.
Also, a side note: Don't have the forgot password as a button. It should be a link
