Faster Way to Login to YPN

For some reason, whenever you go to https://publisher.yahoo.com/ it won't remember your password or auto fill, like AdSense. They programmed not to allow it for some reason. A thread at WebmasterWorld named Is there a direct link to the login? gives an other option.

I am not sure how secure it is to have this on your computer, you make that call.

<form method=post action="https://publisher.yahoo.com/portal/login.php" name=verify_form>
<input type=hidden name=username value=your_username>
<input type=hidden name=password value=your_passwd>
<input type=submit>
</form>
<body>
<script language="javascript">
document.verify_form.submit();
</script>
</body>

You can just save it locally or put it onto a https server

To make it more secure either run it purely from your pc, or, if you must put it on a public webserver, change the hidden fields to text and remove the value attributes - instead, allow your browser to remember the login details for you, ie it will work form the second time its used. IMHO
