Saved passwords and AutoFill instructions are controlled by your device/computer's browser settings, not by the page you're visiting. If your browser does not save your Library barcode and/or PIN, you may need to change your browser settings.
On an iPad:
Remembered password settings on an iPad can be managed by going to Settings > Safari > AutoFill. If "Names and Passwords" is set to "Off" on that page, the Library catalogue page will not be able to auto-fill your barcode.
If that's not the issue (i.e., AutoFill is set to "on"), it's possible that at some early point in visiting this page, you tapped "Never remember passwords for this page" when asked if you wanted to store info. That would have set up a specific rule for that page, overriding the basic autofill instructions.This can be cleared by going to Settings > Safari > "Clear History and Website Data" function, noting of course that saved information from other websites you visit may also be cleared.
You can also try manually adding a saved password for the page (Settings > Safari > Passwords > Add Password). You would need to copy and paste the website address "winca.ent.sirsidynix.net" and enter your barcode as the username and PIN as password.
Use the menu (bars icon) in the top-right and choose Settings (or type chrome://settings) in the address bar. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Show Advanced Settings." Under "Passwords and Forms," click "Manage Passwords." Scroll down to "Never Saved"; if 'winca.ent.sirsidynix.net' appears in the list, click on it (an x will appear) to remove it.
The next time you visit the page, it should offer to save your password.
Use the menu (bars icon) in the top-right and choose Options. Choose "Security" from the menu on the left; here you can check or uncheck the option to 'Remember logins for sites'. If "Remember logins for sites' is already checked, click on "Exceptions" to see if 'winca.ent.sirsidynix.net' appears in the list, and remove it if it does. The next time you visit the page, it should offer to save your password.
In Internet Explorer:
Go to Settings > Internet Options > "Content" tab > Autocomplete > Settings. Here you can check or uncheck the option to autocomplete 'User names and passwords on forms,' and/or "Delete AutoComplete history". NOTE: If you are in a networked environment (like a business or other organization where the computers are maintained by IT staff), you may not have the ability to change these settings.
