Revamp the Login / Logout System [Pending]

Postby spearfish on Sun Mar 23, 2008 8:39 pm

My suggestion is simple. Rework the login / logout system. It's a pain in the butt to have to re-enter my username and password every time I come back to conquer club. Either make it so that you stay logged in after the browser closes, or at least make the username "sticky" (even if you're logged out, the username is still in place).

This is needed because it's annoying to have to keep logging in! Come on!

As a PHP programmer, I know that this is about a five minute fix. Come on lack, your five minutes could save the rest of us hours (scary thought: if it takes 15 seconds to log in, and you log in five times a day for a year, you've spent 7 hours and 36 minutes doing nothing but filling in that form).

I'll even code it in for you if you want. Ready?

Add to login.php:
$inThreeMonths = 60 * 60 * 24 * 90 + time();
setcookie("account", $_POST['username'], $inThreeMonths, '/');


Then on the login form, change:
<input class="field" name="username" id="username" maxlength="16" value="" tabindex="1" type="text">

To:
<input class="field" name="username" id="username" maxlength="16" value="<?php $_COOKIE['account'] ?>" tabindex="1" type="text" />

That will result in the username being sticky for three months. Then you can add a "forget me" link.

Here's what that is (forget.php):
setcookie ("account", "", time() - 3600);
header(" Location: http://www.conquerclub.com/ ");


~~~

Making the user stay logged in would be as changing the php.ini if you use sessions, or setting an expiration time if you use cookies. I don't have your login.php script so I can't help there.

there's a grease monkey script that auto logs you.

or save your username and pass in the browser and you just have to click login.

Firefox saves my username + password so it's not a problem for me when I'm at home, but it's annoying for when i go to school and have to use MSIE.

Yeah, but he has a point. It's only practical to NOT have to rely on greasemonkey or firefox to save your username. I'm no computer programmer, but if it's a 5 minute fix I believe him. Constantly signing in is quite an annoyance.

remember

Postby goffinette on Mon Jun 02, 2008 5:31 pm

Hello!!!
What about a "remember me on this computer box" on the front page!! that would be nice!!

Concise description:
  • xxxxxxx

Specifics:
  • xxxxxxx

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • xxxxxxx (you can obviously delete this for bug reports)
  • xxxxxxx

I agree. For people with laptops or computers that only they use, it'd be a great option.

From what i remember, on most Browsers, when you log into a website, will ask if you would like to save the password, if you click save, each time you come to said website, the Username/Password will automatically be there. I know for a fact it works for this website, conquerclub, as i use it.

Nope. Most browsers that I have come by, such as Google Chrome, and Firefox (Not sure about IE anymore), have the "Remember Me" or "Remember Password" Or something along those lines, that will save the Password and Username.
