Site Access

This plugin dynamically show a login panel in the center of the page and allow user to login from frontend without need to show login module in the page. This feature is very useful if you created a web site for a customer and want allow him to login in frontend for manually add article, news, pictures and so on. In a "commercial" web site is not very good to see a frontend login panel but if you don't want your customer to login through backend admin page you have to find a way for show frontend login module only in "special" conditions. There are many solutions for have this result but this plugin resolve the problem in a very simple way.

The working is very simple. You need to choose a "login word" for use as param to add to the site url. This additional param will show the login panel.

Examples of use

Suppose that, for example, the login param word is 'login' you need to make as follow:

In case of SEF active:

In case of SEF not active: (if no additional params are already present in the URL) (if some additional params are already present in the URL)

The idea that there could be a hidden login that only those who know about it may find, is absolutely brilliant.
Ease of use
From what I understand, it would be very easy to use. Sadly, I can't make it work without support. (See Support below.)
Short, to the T and easy to follow.
I used this to: I would like to use it for an information site where we have no regular registered members, just authors and administrators. The plugin would suit us perfectly.

Good Idea - Very Easy

This does exactly what it says. VERY easy.
Ease of use
Install and enable the plugin, set the "Login Param" or leave at default, and your ready to go.
Did not need or use support.
Instructions are so simple, which is good. I didn't give 100 points because I had to look in the forum to see how to log out.
I used this to: Creating a hidden login, what else? It solved a problem I was having with a popup login. As a bonus, I'm hoping it will cut down on hacking attempts since there is not login button. We'll see. I like the looks of not having a button.
I was really wanting to not display the login form. Our users are only invited and I did not want to 'invite' the world. This was the perfect solution. Works like a charm and I also feel that I have not lost any website security.
Useful for creating a hidden login in J2.5. Just remember to place a link/menu item to the login form for users to logout somewhere and make that for registered user view only.

Works a treat.
