I have a log in form that requires a user name and password. The form won't remember my passwords because the submission form has autocomplete switched off. Here is an example of a similar form:
<form method="POST" name="loginform" autocomplete="off" action="/cgi-bin/security.cgi"> <input name="un" type="text" /> <input name="pw" type="password" autocomplete="off" /> </form>This means that the person who created the login form has specifically prevented my browser from saving the form user names and passwords. This might be ok in the wild but if you have lots of test systems then it can be a bit of a pain. As my old pal says, "if it's got a chip in it, you can re-program it". This is where I learnt about Bookmarklets.
- Right click on the bookmark bar and select New Bookmark.
- Give it a Name, doesn't matter what.
- Click Add.
- Make sure your browser is set up to remember passwords then go to your logging page.
- Click the bookmark in your bookmark bar. This will alter the DOM and switch the auto complete attributes to on.
- Fill in the User Name and Password on the form and click Login.
- Your browser will ask you if you want to remember the credentials, so say that you do.
