Forms Using Web Login

Requires:

  • <form action="/phpbin/telegraph/login/index.php">
  • BU Kerberos username (for anyone submitting the form)

The form tag <form action="/phpbin/telegraph/login/index.php"> allows a Telegraph form to do two things:

  1. limit submissions to BU users only (useful for blocking form spam), and
  2. access profile information such as the BU email address, first and last name, and other general information from the BU Directory (reducing the number of questions on your form itself).

If you add the Telegraph Login tag <form action="/phpbin/telegraph/login/index.php"> you should add a generic BU .htaccess file to your form directory, so that users don’t fill out the form and then discover that they can’t submit it.

You can peruse a complete list of profile information available using this tag.
