( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I decided to use cookies as I was previously using .htaccess and users were having to enter the same user/pass many times whilst moving through various protected folders (this is another problem I could see no answer to).

Funny that I was just reading the Apache docs about this earlier today. If you're using Apache, and have the ability to set per-directory .htaccess (which I assume you do), look at: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/auth.html#basicworks You can configure your various secured directories such that they are named under one authentication name, or "realm", to which browsers will send the same auth info on every request. This prevents the constant auth logins when changing directories.

Try adding the line:
AuthName "Our Protected Stuff"
to your .htaccess file and see what happens. I've not tried this, but will soon have a need for it. Let me know how well it works.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
