We have a login form but lastpass does not detect it as a login form. The form is using an onclick event to call a php script via jQuery.

<form name="myform">
<table class="table" width=500 align="center">
        <tr>
                <td><b>Username:</b><br><input type="text" name="uuname" placeholder="User Name" size=20></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>                <td><b>Password:</b><br><input type="password" id="password" name="uupass" placeholder="Password" size=20 onkeypress="if(event.keyCode==13) { loginfrm(this.form); return false;}"></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
                <td><center>
                <input type="button" value="Forgot Password" class="btn btn-warning" onclick="document.location.href='index.php?section=forgot_pw'">&nbsp;&nbsp;
                <input type="button" name="login" value="Login" class="btn btn-primary" onclick="loginfrm(this.form)"></center></td>
        </tr>
</table>
</form>


<script>
function loginfrm(myform) {
        $.get('ajax/login.php',
        $(myform).serialize(),
        function(php_msg) {
        $("#main_element").html(php_msg);
        });
}
</script>

Open in new window


How would I modify the onclick to tell lastpass this is a site that should be saved for auto fill.

LastPass advise that you don't use AJAX for your Login. It also advises that you don't use GET - you're using both.

Regardless of LastPass, you REALLY shouldn't be passing the users login details as part of the query string! That's a security problem just waiting to happen. At least use POST.

I think it would also help LastPass if you name your fields a little more in line with convention (username / password, rather than uuname / uupass)

Agree with Chris (I usually do).  Use POST because this changes the state of the server.  Use HTTPS because this contains sensitive information.

If you don't want to reload the page, you may use an iframe to post your form. Just set the target attribute of your form with the name of your iframe

<form target="my_iframe_name" method="post"

</form>
<iframe name="my_iframe_name"

You should be able to read content of the iframe using its load event as he share the same origin and protocol than with the page.
