Logging in via Web Form

Recommended Posts


We use filemakers XSLT custom web publishing to create our web sites but we would like to allow clients to login via a normal web form. We have researched a number of ways but cannot figure out how to create a normal web form that will authenticate a user. We cannot use guest accounts, we must have clients login. I have looked at this page


but I can't seem to get it to work with CWP since it's used for IWP. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Hmm. One idea would be

- first to post name and password to the database (e.g. edit two fields, whether global or not).

- then call a script with -script=scriptname that reads the two fields and executes a Re-Login (no dialog) script step, which should be web compatible.

But I am not sure if the WPE keeps track of if a user has been logged in.

If I find time, I will try to build an example.
