barcode#. When I login using a regular card# and click on any link,
for example Items Checked Out, I am immediately returned to the login
screen. Very interesting.

Basically, it will create a small file that ends in .rdf which is then
uploaded to your website. Then you will have to tag your pages to

Any part of the site that is secure, must be preceded with the
before the url in addition to having the regular non-secure url. So as
you can see, I have both vulcan.bham.lib.al.us and I have
You can test this by enabling your content advisor and adding the
mentioned sites into the approved sites tab with the setting of always
I can log in and authenticate and use the staff mode of the webopac
with these settings.
What may have been throwing people before, was not knowing that you
have to also place the https seperately. It is not exactly well
documented from Microsoft.
