Subject Form-based Login question
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2011 02:30:45 GMT
I have been using form-based auth for several years.  I understand the
challenge concept where TC puts up the pre-defined login page when the
first page requiring auth is requested.  But I have a slightly different
situation.  I want all of my non-protected pages (guest-level) to include
the id/pw fields at the top of the page.  At any time when the user chooses
to go to the protected area of the site, they enter their id/pw and hit the
login button and it takes them to a page in the protected area.  Basically,
I want to bypass the forced login page if the user entered an id/pw unless
obviously the auth failed on the provided id/pw.

Is there a way to 'force' provide credentials under the covers at the time
the first protected page is requested to get the user signed on without the
intermediate login form appearing?
