Standardize the user login form on all w.org sites headlines

Description (last modified by netweb)

w.org has many sites. They all have the same header.

But the 'headline' is not identical (For example, the blog has no headlines at all).

More important, the user login form on right side of the headline is different across different site.

Lets standardize the login forms view, and add the user login to all w.org pages!

I'd actually prefer not to do this. As more sites move to running WordPress-proper, login information should be on the top right of the page, in the admin bar.

Further, removing the subhead from the Blog was a design decision from a couple of years ago when they revamped it. I don't see any reason to change that.

We should do this, the admin bar isn't actually shown until you're logged in, a login link should included where it is currently missing

Yeah, no. You can't login everywhere because in most places, logging in there doesn't actually make any sense. The blog does not need to know your login, for example. You can't write on it, and you don't need the admin bar.

The system may be inconsistent, but it is *correct* for all locations. Consistency we can address as needed, on an individual basis. But unification is not on the table.

Not in this particular way, anyway. Long term, some other method must be devised for unified logins. I like the login.wordpress.org idea, personally. But making logins consistent in the header areas is a no go because we'd like to eliminate those, not add more.

Can we at least make the same UI in those pages where you can login? (Forum and Plugins)

Right, makes sense to only included them when needed.

Right, we need one for themes then for adding theme favourites https://wordpress.org/themes/
