We added a menu item to our new Joomla intranet page. it is simply an application's url link set in the Menu Manager: Edit Menu
Item page like this:
Menu Item Type = External URL
Link = http: //server/pio/pio.html
Target Window = New Without Navigation
It works fine. The application fires as it is supposed to. What we would like to do at this point is append the Joomla user's login name to the link so that it automatically logs them in to the app instead of prompting for a user ID again. This is what the URL link would need to look like if I were to click on the menu item to run the external app without being prompted for a user ID:
So how can we append the Joomla's user login ID to the Menu Type Item External Link
whenever a user clicks on it?
