I have a site where in I have a link to another site's login page. The problem is the login page on the other site is a popup called via java script from that page. I need to send users to that login page... is this possible...

For example my site www.mysite.com (A link to goto othersite's login page)

www.othersite.com
The login page is a popup here and called via a java script on this site.

Can I call this java script from my page so user can directly goto login page instead of home page?

I guess that you don't have any control over the other site?

You say that the login page there is a pop-up called via JavaScript, but is it actually a JavaScript login mechanism, or does the JavaScript just make the pop-up work, which is standard html?

If it is a separate URL, it is possible.  But if their base page sets a cookie or some other code required for the login, it won't succeed.  And if it is not a separate page, I don't see how you would call their javascript without their page.  It could be in an iframe I guess.

if you know the login page url, just paste it as a href instead of placing www.othersite.com in your site, directly place the login url at that place..

If you are sending traffic to this other site, I would think they would be co-operative in helping you to do so.  I suggest to contact the operator of the other site and see if they can help you reach your goal.

Yes you can :D
1- you can append a parameter to  the link that you will click such as that
<a href="www.othersite.com?login=popup"

Open in new window

and then in the other site you can get this parameter from the request and you can do an action based on this parameter such as a login popup.

This is a solution, if this solution is acceptable, that's great, if not tell me again, because I have another solution.

Best wishes :D
