How to Remove the Login Form

Postby nextz77 » Tue Oct 11, 2011 4:10 am

I am installing Joomla 1.6 and using the default template. How can I remove login / register form and Site Login & Site Administrator login link on the navigation sides?. I don’t want people to register or login to the site.

Welcome to the forums!

The simple thing that you need to do is unpublish the Login Form in the Module Manager:
- Log into Administrator
- Go to Extensions > Module Manager
- Click on the tick in the status column next to "Login Form" module.
- The login form is now unpublished.

Not sure where you have the Site Login and Site Administrator links appearing, but it is likely that they are in a menu, so in the backend:
- Menus > Main Menu (or other menus)
- Unpublish menu items

Also, if the menu items are in a menu that is part of the sample data in Joomla, you can unpublish the menu in the same way you unpublished the Login Form module above.

To then completely disable registrations, you should also:
- Go to Users > User Manager
- Click on Options
- Change the value for "Allow User Registration" to No
- Click Save & Close
This then prevents people registering by knowing what the component URL is for the user signup.

Final tip, upgrade Joomla 1.6 to Joomla 1.7.1 which is the latest version.
- Backup your site (especially if it's a production site) not that anything will go wrong with the update (Install akeeba backup to perform the backup)
- Go to Extensions > Extension Manager
- Click on "Update" on the left
- On the top right, click on "Find Updates"
- Joomla 1.7.1 update should appear in the update list
- Select any available updates
- Click on "Update" on the top right toolbar
- Joomla will then update to Joomla 1.7.1

Hello, I am new to joomla and I am having trouble removing the login form in my homepage. I am using Joomla! 2.5. The login form extension for the site is protected and i can't do anything about it considering I am a superuser. I tried unpublishing the login found in the menus but still with no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. :D

*Nevermind I solve the problem :D

And for those playing along at home, Karlo would have gone to the module manager and unpublished the login module.

Unpublishing it from the menu was also a good idea.

The locked out area was in the manage extensions page - the login module itself is a core part of joomladay, so it can't be uninstalled - only instances of it can be removed ie in the module manager - deleting the module deleted the instance but not the files for the module.

Use the Option button in User Manager and turn off Allow new user registration.

I have done this step. Allow User Registration has been toggled to "No".
With www.integragrp.com.sg typed in, the site still directing me to http://www.integragrp.com.sg/component/ ... view=login even I have done all the steps mentioned.

I'm using Joomla!2.5.4.

Please help.

They cannot do anything with the login form without a valid username and password.

You can do a redirect in the .htaccess file.

Any idea how can I redirect ?

I tried mu luck by adding "##" to the following statement in the .htaccess but it does work.
## RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /component/|(/[^.]*|\.(php|html?|feed|pdf|vcf|raw))$ [NC]

What is your Home Menu Item Type? Link? Do you still have the "Login Form" assigned to it in the Module Assignment tab?

Also, by any chance, do You have Virtuemart or other extensions installed and requesting registration/login?

My Home Menu Item Type is "Menu Item Alias".
In the Module Assignment tab, "Login Form" display is "No" meaning not assigned.

The only extensions that I have installed is bfForms. The form created has Login Name and Login Email fields which is supposed to auto-filled in. Will this affect removal of the login form ?

I have a similar problem. I am using Joomla 2.5.6.

Basically, i want to prevent people from accessing "index.php?option=com_users&lang=en&view=login" and the login form showing up.

I already tried redirecting the path in sh404SEF to a 404 page, but it doesn't work. It still goes to the login form. i am paranoid about form fields, so i just don't want people being able to directly access this login form. What i want is if a snoop tried to access the login form via that path, it will show a 404 error instead.

That means it is a menu to a link, see the Menu Link property.. is it linking to the login form? Just change the menu item type to Feautered article, such as a home page article should solve it.

It might also be the problem, although I do not know the specific extension, try to disable it.

I solved my own problem. I used this directive in htaccess:

RedirectPermanent /Log-in/ http://www.yourdomain.com/error.htm

The "/Log-in" is a SEF URL generated by sh404SEF for "index.php?option=com_users&lang=en&view=login". When someone tries to access the login form by calling this path, it gets redirected to "error.htm" which is a non-existent page, resulting to sh404SEF component publishing the default 404 page instead.

Pulling my hair out with this one.

Having disabled mod_login in Module Manager (administrator), the login form is still appearing on the home page (no other pages). I've looked at whether it is possible to change the menu assignment for this disabled module, but there is no option to do this in Joomla 1.5.23.

Any ideas what to do to get around this hurdle. I've been delayed 7 days going live with my site because of this anomly.

To clear things up. Disabling the Login Module does not have any impact on the Login Form in the Users Component (com_users).

You can do an override of the form in your template with one that only contains a redirect.

Edit the Login Form module, scroll down to the Menu Assignment, and select No Pages for Module Assignment.

Hi,

I have two login modules, one I created, one of Joomla-users.
Unless I can change the placement of the Joomla core module, it needs to go.
Any suggestions?
