Hi, all.

I Have the following html:

<form action="http://mydomain.net/forum/login.php?do=login" method="post" onsubmit="md5hash(vb_login_password, vb_login_md5password, vb_login_md5password_utf, 0)">

<asp:ImageButton ID="btnLogin" runat="server"  ImageUrl="images/loginButton.gif" AccessKey="s" />
                        <input type="password" name="vb_login_password" id="navbar_password" />
                        <input type="text" name="vb_login_username" id="navbar_username"
                            accesskey="u" value="'3E 'DE3*./E" onfocus="if (this.value == ''3E 'DE3*./E') this.value = '';" />
                    <input type="hidden" name="s" value="" />
                    <input type="hidden" name="do" value="login" />
                    <input type="hidden" name="vb_login_md5password" />
                    <input type="hidden" name="vb_login_md5password_utf" /


I want the previous form to be inside master page, I know it will not work.
So do anyone has an idea .
Thanks for any help
Watch Question

You may want to use NESTED MASTERPAGES.

You can create a root master page for a site that defines a site's overall layout, and then create nested master pages that are based on the root master and further customize the layout, allowing you to embed forms into the master.

Here is a good article:


For your problem, you'd make another master page content holder then put the form outside any other main forms on the page. you have to restructue to accomindate this.

-- jq


No JennyQ, I want to put this form in the MainMasterPage.

I tried the following:

<asp:imagebutton class="loginBtn" id="btnLogin" runat="server" postbackurl="http://mydomain.net/forum/login.php?do=login"
    imageurl="images/loginButton.gif" accesskey="s" onsubmit="md5hash(vb_login_password, vb_login_md5password, vb_login_md5password_utf, 0)" />
<input type="password" class="txtUser" name="vb_login_password" id="navbar_password" />
<input type="text" class="txtUser" name="vb_login_username" id="navbar_username"
    accesskey="u" value="user name" onfocus="if (this.value == 'user name') this.value = '';" />
<input type="hidden" name="s" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="do" value="login" />
<input type="hidden" name="vb_login_md5password" />
<input type="hidden" name="vb_login_md5password_utf" />


but when I click on the button It give me the following message from the "Forum domain":

"In order to accept POST request originating from this domain, the admin must add this domain to the whitelist."

That error is an apache or tomcat error right? that is not IIS.

A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a set. This list is inclusionary, confirming that the item being analyzed is acceptable. It is the opposite of a blacklist which confirms that items are not acceptable.
An e-mail whitelist is a list of contacts that the user deems are acceptable to receive email from and should not be sent to the trash folder.

You need to configure your webserver it sounds like.


I don't have any control on the forum to add my site to the whitelist.

And I test the form outside of my domain and it's worked but when I run it from my domain it gives the error.

So if there any way to do this.
This one is on us!

I don't think so

But I which to that by take the value of the text boxes to another page that not inherit from the master page, that may be work.

So how can we do that without querystring because there is a password


sorry JennyQ the problem was happened because I was testing my domain on the localhost.

when I publish it to the net it working with a new problem.

so I will ask about it.
