I am not exactly sure what you are looking for... If you supply a URL 
like the one above BASE is going to ask you for a login and password. 
The value for ID (eg. 'uid' in the example) can be anything. There is 
nothing magic with ID=0, but the ID has to be a unique string per user 
session, so you can't just put a static link to the page within BASE.
