    Sorry I know this sounds like a dumb question.

    Client’s website is just simple .html pages. But this login form is asking for id=’databasename’

    Would I need to set up a database just for this login thing?


    form method=’post’ action=’’&gt;





    Well the form is submitting to login.php can you look in that file and see what’s going on.

    And when posting code, select the code and press the Block Code button above comment form. If you don’t do this, it’s possible some code will get stripped out.



    Thanks, but that php file is on a different site that is providing this login service.

    When I go to that addresss it doesn’t show anything.


    databaseid is the html name of the field – it could be anything, and really has no bearing on you (the person filling out the form)*. The label for that field says “Client ID.” Do you have a client id? I would assume you would have received one when you registered on the site.

    * Now, it may have something to do with how the site is programmed—e.g., perhaps the client id is actually used as a primary key in their database. But again, this has nothing to do with you.
