I've got a simple asp login page, but it's got two little problems I need to fix.
1) When login fails, we lose the original target url. We need to keep that information.
2) I need to add a username field.

Who can help?

Thanks!

Corrections: misspelled username here:
Trim(Request.Form("txtUsename"))

and there is an extra/unmatched closing parenthesis here (which you need to remove):
Response.Redirect("password.asp?result=loginfailed&target=" & Request.QueryString("target")) ) 'here's where I need to include the target url
