autologin without password

Post by kmchen » Fri Dec 03, 2021 12:41 pm

The method Jfactory::getApplication()->login() do not accept empty passords

How to auto log a user without knowing its password, just with its username ?

Nor that forum, nor the mailing list mentioned above seem alive. Is the Joomla community dead ?

Pretty much. Anyways, you need to write an authentication plugin. Logging in using just a username sounds highly insecure, though.

Comprofiler offers a method auttenticate with possibility of password = false. Nothing equivalent in Joomla ?

Thanks for the link to the plugin. I'll test it. But when my website sends a mail to a user with a link containing a security code, I consider that the user should not have to login.
