When URL contains

When you have two logins at the same website, where the www.domain.com is the same, but one is www.domain.com/xyz and the other one is www.domain.com/abc, as in Parent login and student login, specify the entire string shown above in italic, as opposed to just www.domain.com for two of the account specific settings and you won't get a pop up asking you to choose which one to log into.
It is impossible to create a fool-proof system, because fools are ingenious.

I wish I understood that one :)  Maybe it's because it's so late...

Eric, after you've had your morning coffee, give it another try.  It is really quite elementary.    :lol:

I'm not sure I understand either...

Romeo, can you point to a site that provides different pages for logins like this? Maybe I need to wait for my morning coffee too...

Example would be invisionfree forums (The same forums used here).  Forums that do not forward their address (which is why you see the URL forums.passwordmaker.org here) all use invisionfree.com/fourmname are their URL (i.e. invisionfree.com/passwordmaker). If you sign up for multiple forums and only use the domain invisionfree.com, each time you login you are asked which account to choose from.  Romeo is saying to put more information in the When URL contains field to avoid this (i.e. invisionfree.com/iFusion etc.)

quixin, thanks for clearing that one up.  Finally, someone who can think in the abstract.

tanstaafl, you are talking about the tricks and tips list, right.  This is not a feature request.

Yep - I can't add stuff to the Feature Request List - nor does Eric want me to be able to - I'll load up my one special request with a bunch of fake votes! ...  :tomato:

I know you meant this as a joke, but seriously it's not possible for two people to do this job. I don't update it myself. I used to when we originally posted the FRL in the forums, but I would inevitably step on something Tyrantmizar was working on. IOW, if two people are editing the post simultaneously, the last person to hit "submit" overwrites the other's changes. I never really told him that, so he thought edits were magically disappearing on him ._o
