Auto Login?

Post by Isochroma » Sun Dec 18, 2005 2:14 am

Sorry to ask again, but I used to use a specially-crafted link so that when I go to the AniDB site I'm logged in automatically. The username/pass is in the url, and it also contains the phrase "doautologin"... does anyone know what the URL format for this auto-login feature is? Thanks.

Use cookies. It will work fine if you want to stay connected to AniDB forever.

Even though I have my browser set to use cookies, they inevitably expire. After a few hours I always have to re-enter the login info... Also, my cookies are stored on a ramdisk, so when I reboot all is lost.

If I'm understanding you correctly, this is what you need:
  1. Install the "Web Developer" extension.
  2. Go to the login page.
  3. Tools -> Web Developer -> Forms -> Convert POSTs to GETs
  4. Log in
  5. Bookmark URL
