I have a page with the user data, such as name, age, address, e-mail and password. On this page, the data can be edited with an inline edit form and then click on a "save" button. The e-mail and the password can't be updated within the form, because it's used for the login, so the e-mail needs a confirmation before changing. Currently, both the e-mail and password, needs the current password before being updated.
My question is: Should I use a modal window to ask for the new E-mail/Password with the current Password confirmation? Or should I use a 'slide down' div to show the option for each of them?
The modal option seems a little better, because it will block the other options, making the user focus on just this task. But I also noticed some trends on avoiding modal, especially if it's to update user data.
