Is it possible to make log in page on my site that will then transfer the login info to the login form on ohter pages? examples;
from my site they would fill in user info, password etc. and when they hit enter it would then transfer their login info to the appropriate spaces on say this site;
or this site;

as you can see the 2 sites also have  different numbers of info requires to log in.

You could look at the source on the other pages and probably have your form post to their form handler if you get all the variable names right for the form boxes:

<form ACTION="https://eservices.paychex.com/secure/default.asp?action=login" METHOD="post" NAME="fm">

That is what I thought , but the problem is there is more than one page that it would have to transfer to and they all have different criteria, some just user and pass some user company code and pass.

yep, you'd have to account for all the different pages no matter what.

Many login scripts take efforts to prevent what you are trying to do (i.e. not use form to login).  If this is the case with any site above then it won't let you do it even if you had different "forms" to pass the correct info from your page.

Did you still have a question or need some help with this?  I saw the B grade and I know I can provide more info if you need it.  Let us know if you still need help or didn't mean to close this.  It is nice to have a chance to earn the A (or know why we didn't). :)

Thanks for the fun question.
