On my website i have a system where there are log-in boxes for selected customers. At the time being i have 3 log-in boxes, i hope in the near future that there will be over 20 boxes at a time. The problem is that the people will have to skim over every box to find their name to log in. I want to set up a function much like ctrl+f where the customer can type there name in a box and it will highlight or navigate to there name on the page. Once again this would be on one page.
Thanks

Hi dlong,

I'm sorry you feel that you have waited too long for a response. This is a very unusual request, and we are aware of it, but we are still looking into an answer for you.

We should have told you that we were looking at it, and for that I apologise.

Could you give us your URL so that we can take a look at the system you currently have in place please.

Once again, I apologise for the delay.

Hi dlong

First of all the login boxes use code you sourced elsewhere. Great creativity but the support we can offer for this is limited - as you can imagine.

If you want to make the page searchable how about adding a Google search box or another search box that only searches your site. People could then type in their names and be taken to the relevant portion.

Here is a link to a Widgetbox widget you can use for this: http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/googl...
(this widget will work once Google has indexed your site)

Has anyone got any other ideas for dlong that would make his login boxes searchable?

Ok i found that my log in was not suitable for the customers plus the chance of a law suit so since i was making new pages for everyone's video i just decided to have there made into a link to their site that is password protected. But now i am back to this question and that good search still goes to the google page and i'm looking for a search that just moves the page to the search. Much like the ctrl+F buttons. And now it would only be text you are looking for i am no longer using the user name box thing.

I'm not to sure what you are trying to do , but how about this:

Create 3 hidden pages (one each for david, tyler and annoyer)
Make 3 links or buttons to each of them on your login page.
"http://capturememories.synthasite.com..."
"http://capturememories.synthasite.com..."
"http://capturememories.synthasite.com..."

Substitute the "text1", "text2",and "text3" after the php# at
the end of the each url with the "location name"you want to jump
to on these respective pages.

Password protect each of their pages with their own unique
password, using Synthasite's new password feature.

On David's page place this html code just above the location
you want to jump to. <!-- <a name="text1"></a> -->
(Leave out the < !-- and the -- >) at the begining and end of the code.
Once again substitute the "text1" with your own "location name".
Leave the inverted commas in place i.e. "...."

Repeat this for the other 2 users.
There is another way to do this, but this worked for me - specially
if you are jumping to picture locations on specific pages.

Hope this helps you - I also battled the 1st time.

no i have it figured out as in the log in. What the problem is, there is a page that will have at least 10 links at a time linking the customer to their video. What i want is an easy way for them find there link on the page. Like i have said i would like it more of a ctrl "F" function where it just directs them to their name.

I am afraid I was out of tricks on this when I shared my Google search box idea - but I can see why that is no good for what you are trying to achieve. Ctrl "F" works well. I will have to keep searching to find something that will give you a similar result.

Any suggestions appreciated!
