I am trying to separate the "Create new Account" and "Checkout as Guest" options into two columns, so my checkout login will feature three separate columns: "Checkout as Guest", "Create new Account", "Login to existing Account". For this to work, I need to remove the radio buttons and add the setMethod function to the buttons. Will this require changing the function itself in opcheckout.js, or can this be achieved by editing the login template?

I found this guide and tried following it step by step without any luck. I then tried adding the modified setMethod function to opcheckout_rwd.js instead of opcheckout.js and it seems to be working now.

This is the code I am inserting into opcheckout_rwd.js:

Checkout.prototype.setMethod = function (methodtype) {
    if (methodtype=='guest') {
        this.method = 'guest';
        var request = new Ajax.Request(
            this.saveMethodUrl,
            {method: 'post', onFailure: this.ajaxFailure.bind(this), parameters: {method:'guest'}}
        );
        Element.hide('register-customer-password');
        this.gotoSection('billing');
    }
    else if(methodtype=='register') {
        this.method = 'register';
        var request = new Ajax.Request(
            this.saveMethodUrl,
            {method: 'post', onFailure: this.ajaxFailure.bind(this), parameters: {method:'register'}}
        );
        Element.show('register-customer-password');
        this.gotoSection('billing');
    }
    else {
        alert(Translator.translate('Please choose to register or to checkout as a guest'));
        return false;
    } }

The edits to login.phtml can be adapted from the guide. The only concern I am having right now, is that I am not sure if this breaks support for persistent carts since I had to remove this entire part from login.phtml:

<form action="<?php echo $this->getUrl('persistent/index/saveMethod'); ?>">
                    <button id="onepage-guest-register-button" type="submit" class="button"><span><span><?php echo $this->__('Register') ?></span></span></button>

to prevent having the button load the billing step with &register added to the url (see here). I am not using persistent carts so it is not an issue for me...
