But even in this case, the GET method would post the username and password and all of that within the URL... and even though it`s local, it's not something i would want... Considering that i created my own GET method which uses the window.location.href to post the new page and append all of the current page' form elements and that this is not something that i want to be using, is there a way for me to persist data between pages without cookies and without having to transform the URL manually because i'm not on a framework?
for example, the URL for my login is something like this:
C:\documents and settings\username\Desktop\login.htm
my script file handles the verification of the user against the DB without problems and should re-direct to the main page... but that page should check to see if the user is logged in (usually done through a session)...
Anyway, any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated... i will need a solution or just give up because as you can easily tell, i will need more of this to produce a proper Budgeting application (keep amounts in memory between pages, etc)...
