WebCT auto-login

Posted March 28, 2006 in Code

Even more stuff about McGill's network that I hate! WebCT (the worst classroom management web system thingy) at McGill has a really stupid sign-in page. I used to be able to bookmark the login page and enter by pressing Enter; but when they upgraded to WebCT Vista they removed that feature.

I wrote a Greasemonkey script which automatically clicks the Submit button on the sign-in page. It assumes your password is auto-completed.

It eliminates one of those little things that makes life just a teeny bit worse.

I've only tested it with the Epiphany Greasemonkey extension but I expect it works with Firefox as well.
