PROBLEM:

iChain allows you to customize its login page, but only using very basic HTML. I have a customer who wants to provide their own login form on a web page accelerated by iChain (through a public resource) to allow their users to login through their own web form, not the iChain form.

SOLUTION:

To do this, all you need is the following code in an HTML (or PHP, ASP, whatever) page:


<FORM ACTION="/ICSLogin/" METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">
User Name: <INPUT NAME="username" TYPE="text" SIZE="20"><br />
Password: <INPUT NAME="password" TYPE="password" SIZE="20"><br />
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="submit" value="Log In" ALT="Login"><br />
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="url" VALUE="https://your.server.com/" READONLY>
</FORM>
