Default Logging in to forums (I wasn't sure where this goes)

Hello everyone, I was just wondering if it is possible to log into a forum by just typing a specific url after the website name (i.e www.computerforums.org/stuff-that-would-make-me-log-in)

is it possible?

Ha-Ha

my god, Tech_Explorer and 1337G33k i thought you would have clocked on to what he was saying a bit quicker.

so your saying can you type in
Computerforums.org/?User=ssc456?Password=NotMyPassword?

No is the straight answer, some websites that are built to take this can let you login this way but it's very unsecure and not reccomended. Is there a problem with the "remember me" button?

This software you're on right now will not do it. And that's for security reasons.
A question like this one was raised at the VB org support forum. It was a pretty good read but in the end we finally convinced him if it was possible it was a bad idea.
