Login Assistant does not log in a user silently. The user is first redirected to login screen with username and password (optional) already filled in with the data encrypted in the provided link. He has just to click Login button and then will be redirected to the specific page of your site (also encoded in the login link).
This extension may be useful for assisted login to view demo pages of your site or a support ticket progress online. Each link created by Login Assistant backend utility can be included to an email message or inserted as a link in an article.
The target page (where the particular user will be redirected after login) can be defined individually for each link created.
- A user does not have to (and actually can not) know his username and password to login to your site
- Both username and password in the link generated are encrypted
- You control how your users login via Login Assistant links, if you block a user in User Manager he will not be able to enter
- Redirect-only function for the links created with no user selected
So I create a new client page and use this little Component to create a custom URL from a menu link with a username and password.
Once i grab the custom URL, I then go to my clients site and create a link called "VIEW MAINTENANCE" once they click it, they are now lead to my site - they input their username and password and BAM! they see their own maintenance page etc...
Perfect solution for my situation.
Thank you very much developer for this free extension!
