For the Forward login cookies Results Authorization method, if none of the Login Cookies are seen at search time, the user is assumed not to have logged in yet, and will be redirected to this URL instead. The Login URL should be the URL to the site's form-based login page.
After logging in, the site's login page can be configured to
re-redirect the user back to their original search if desired.
The special token "
%REFERER%", if used in the Login URL,
will be replaced with the URL back to the user's search. Thus,
it could be assigned to a query-string variable in the Login URL
so that the login page can redirect back to the search. E.g. with
this value for the Login URL:
Webinator would redirect the user to
http://login.acme.com/login.asp, with the
variable set to the Webinator search page (with query).
login.asp code could be modified to redirect the user
back to the
searchurl query variable after login.
