Admin login URL

Permalink 5 users found helpful
Hello all,

I recently used my custom theme on my Concrete5 website, but the new theme doesn't include a "login" link for me to login as admin and edit my website.

Now I can't login and change the theme back to the default theme with the login link. Can anyone tell me the default URL for accessing the login prompt?

try a line like this:
www.www.yoursite.com/index.php/login...
or
www.www.yoursite.com/index.php/dashboard...

If you haven't set your site to use pretty url's either one of these should kick you to the login in page.

Cannon definitely gave the right answer with the "yoursite/index.php/login" suggestion. Thanks!

Just started playing around with C5 for the first time. Made some progress on developing a custom theme, but then looged out, and can't for the life of my find the dashboard to log back in. Neither of these options work.

The site is currently in a subdirectory on the clients server & displays fine. Any other ideas how I can get back to the dashboard?

Those aren't working for me either. They're taking me tohttp://www.yoursite.com then I don't know what to do from there.

Do you know what's the log in link in PHP format so the theme can be migrated easily?

The PHP login url is the following:
$this->url('/login')

and logout:
$this->url('/login', 'logout')

Very helpful post! I'm developing a theme and seem to have accidentally taken out the login link, so this was a huge time-save that kept me from having to re-install.

Many thanks!

Try this:

http://www.websitename.com/dir/index.php/dashboard/...

Where "dir" is the name of directory where you istalled concrete 5
