You'd need to post the script so we can see exactly what you have attempted.
By logging directly, do you want them to log in as "guest"?
From what I remember from the Instant Web Publishing Guide, found in Documents in Filemaker help, this can be set up to work that way for "Guest" accounts.
Perform Script ["MaximizeWindow"]
Show/Hide Status Area [Hide]
Go to Layout["web_start" (member)]
Enter Browse Mode
Set Field[Global::G_MName; ""]
Set Error Capture [On]
The GUEST setup works based on my first test. Thanks for your help with the script.
I am prompted with the Instant Web Publishing login screen. How can I bypass this and preload with the Guest account login permission? Will I be able to have 5 guests maximum at a time?
In IWP, the script exits on the first script step that is not "web compatible". Maximizing your window is not a web compatible step so this is the part that is keeping your script from working. You can set up If steps to skip such non-compatible steps when the user is a web user:
If [ Not PatternCount ( Get (applicationVersion ) ; "Web" ) ]
Perform Script ["maximize window"]
In the script editor, if you select "Web Publishing" from the Show Compatibility drop down, you can see what steps in your script are not compatible.
Your suggestion fixed the script. Thanks. Regarding, the Instant Web Publishing login screen. How can I bypass this and preload with the Guest account login permission? Will I be able to have 5 guests maximum at a time?
My exprience with IWP is limited so I can't really suggest much. As far as I know, you shouldn't have any trouble with the number of guests (up to 5 at once) accessing the database. Even in regular FileMaker, you can simultaneously open the database from different computers with the same account name and password..
