Site Authentication - Google

edited December 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have a forum that I have made private. I also run google AdSense on the forum. For Google to show site appropriate ads Google must be able to log into the forum. Google has a site authentication I have used before with a different forum, but I am having problems getting it to work with Vanilla. Basically what the authentication tool is looking for is Authentication URL: Authentication method: post Parameters: Attribute Value Username myusersname Password mypassword When I test the authentication it should take me to the main page logged in as myusername. What I get is the Username field is filled in but nothing in the password field. I looked at the form and the field name for txtPassword is Password but no luck. Any ideas what I need to do to get it to authenticate.

    I figured it out. There was a hidden field I didn't think really mattered, but it did. I added the attribute PostBackAction with value SignIn and it worked perfectly.

    Funny,I am trying the same and have all values set I think Username=***** Password=****** PostBackAction=SignIn but google only opens the form and fills out the user name. Anyone an idea on this?
