    Hi,

    We would like users to access a password protected directory from a URL without the need to enter a user name and password in the dialogue.

    From a link like that would look something like this; https://mydomain.com/securedirectory/?login=user1=password=passsord

    Is that possible?

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    This typically depends on the web browser you are using. You may have success using:

    Code:
    "http://username:password@example.com"
    However, it's possible that your web browser will restrict this.

    Thank you.

    Is it possible to bypass the browser dialogue and use a login form created on a separate page?

    Example:
    Custom login form > password protected directory
