Howdy,
Is there a direct URL that can include the username & password for logging in?
e.g.
https://www.exetel.com.au/login/?userna ... xxxxxxxxxx

Not that I know of. The credentials will be in a HTML POST method (i.e. submitted form) as opposed to GET method (URL).

Depending on what you want, there may be alternatives. For simple usage meter queries, check out http://home.exetel.com.au/amurgshere/mxtlusage.phtml. There are also third-party form fillers that will fill out login pages automatically for you.

The Opera browser (available for all common operating systems) can remember all your logins and passwords - you only have to enter them once. It also remembers any special browser settings you may have for each site.

Likewise for Firefox

But as far as I am aware, it still takes two clicks. One to follow a bookmark link. And one to click the Login button.

The second click might be what darylp was trying to avoid?

If you use Firefox with the Net Usage Item extension, you can right-click the meter and select "Visit ISP usage page". That opens a new tab and logs you in to the user facilities using the username and password you've entered in the extension's preferences.

Mate, they are standard procedures for any site out there. I'm afraid we can't help you.

Place...

Code: Select all

<html>
<body onload="document.exetel.submit();">
<form action="https://www.exetel.com.au/login/redirect.php" method="post" name=exetel>
<input type="hidden" name="login_name" value="0222222222">
<input type="hidden" name="password" value="0222222222AB">
</form>
</body>
</html>
... into notepad, replace 0222222222 and 0222222222AB with your username and password (keeping the "") and save the file as a html file. Then just bookmark it in your browser for one click logging in (the click being the click on the bookmark).
