    How can the ID auto complete be removed in the login page?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    In all versions, when a user fills out the ID number on the login page, the Web OPAC automatically tries to complete the text. For example, if on a specific computer a user already entered id "123456789", then when next user comes, if he types "123" then a small window will open under the field with the full ID number, so the user can choose it. Can this removed in ALEPH?

    This is controlled by the browser definitions. It can be controlled via the "internet options" of the browser.
    For example, if using Microsoft Explorer, do the following:

    1. In the internet explorer menue click on tools > internet options > content > personal information > auto complete >
    2. You will see there a section entitled "use complete for". In this section choose options for which you would like to use "auto complete"

    You may also change the xml file login in www_f_eng so that the username and password you enter are displayed as points.

    To turn the username text to points, add this line: <input type=password to this section:

    <td class=td2 nowrap>User ID/ Barcode:</td>
    <td class=td2>
    <input type=password
    <input size=21

    To turn the password into points, change the line: <input type=password in this section:

    <td class=td2> Verification:</td>
    <td class=td2>
    <input type=password
