Bypassing the Orchid Login Page

Monday, November 24, 2008

I got the great idea to jazz up the login page to my Orchid-based website. Of course I managed to trash the template while doing this. So I couldn't even log in to fix it! The help desk got me back up in no time - but is there any way I could have fixed this myself without embarrassing myself by calling for help?

Yes - you can bypass the login page completely by passing your credentials in the URL.
The URL looks like this:

where you substitute the proper values for mywebsite, myusername, and mypassword.

Then just go back to the login template and fix it. You can always revert to an earlier version if you cannot find your error.
