We have a message board, which requires a user to create a profile with a username and password. Our customer would like to have a "remember me" checkbox, which would keep the member logged in for every visit. We are currently setting a cookie which remembers the members name, for the "welcome <name>" messge, however we are unable to save the password in the cookie, because of the encryption. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

that's not quite what I needed...I need the user to be logged in autmatically (this would be in IE and NETSCAPE).
Thanks though.

how do you get the encrypted password to save in the cookie to pass to the URL?

Hello,

I do not think you can circumvent the login panel.
Only thing you can do is to preset the username and password fields.

Look here for some JavaScript extentions to $$LoginUserForm

Are you using the notes user id and password to authenticate or are you just using anonymous access to capture a user name and password that is site specific ?

Thanks
Pat

Hello M0n1ca2,

you can do this only by writing a DSAPI filter DLL to do it the way you like it.

Here is the link to the description how to write this DLL:
http://doc.notes.net/domino_notes/5.0/readme.nsf/b15802fae01f6c868525619e00767b21/b51a15035302f7f585256774004992f2?OpenDocument
And here an example:

I have written some DSAPI DLLs for WinNT and OS/390. But do not ask me to write it for you without real word money :-)

Cheers,
zvonko
