Our Knowledge Base covers a wide variety of technical topics, from the basic to the complex.
How do I create a custom log-in page, so that users are sent directly to an app "Home Page" I have designed rather than the "My Apps" page?
This technique will only work if the page is hosted as a text page in a separate QuickBase application. Of course this application that hosts the page will have to have view access for the group "Everyone on the Internet".
On FireFox and IE, the following HTML will present a simple UI for logging into QuickBase.
You can try it by clicking on the attached link at the bottom of this article.
Upon successful login by the user, they will be re-directed to a page of your choosing. In the example below, a user is re-directed to http://www.example.com/custompage.html but you can replace the occurrence of this URL with any URL you choose.
<title>Custom Login Page for QuickBase</title>
var qdb = new QuickBaseClient();
if(qdb.displayErrorAlert("Sorry we could not log you in. Check your username and password and please try again. "))
window.location.href = "http://www.example.com/custompage.html";
Username: <input type="text" name="username" id="qdbusername"><br>
Password: <input type="password" name="password" id="qdbpassword"><br>
<input type="submit" value="Login" onclick="login()">
NOTE: This solution is not compatible with Internet Explorer 11.
