Description

With IP Login you can log into you Joomla frontend and/administrator side automatically by IP address.

You can simply set up your IP address and a secret URL key in your user profile in the administrator.

After installing IP Login, you will have below settings in every user profile. So to set up IP Login for your user, go to the User Manager and click on your user account.

IP Login user settings

With above example, you will be able to automatically log in on IP address 123.456.789.123 with URL key mxx8hrv4.

The URL key needs to be put in the url as a 'query' variable, like:
http://www.yourdomain.com?mxx8hrv4

If the URL already contains a ?, you can prepend the key with an &, like:
http://www.yourdomain.com/administrator/index.php?option=com_content&mxx8hrv4

Security warning

Be aware that there is a small security risk. The risk is low, as the hacker will have to find out your IP address (and spoof it), know that you have set it up as auto-log-in IP address and somehow find out your secret URL key.

Installation

You can either install IP Login by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating IP Login, you do not need to uninstall it first. The package will update all the files automatically.

Keep in mind that when you update to a major new version (or uninstall first), you might lose some configuration settings.

NoNumber Extension Manager

It is very easy to install/update any NoNumber Extension using the NoNumber Extension Manager.

Please see the User Guide for the NoNumber Extension Manager for more detailed information...


Joomla! Extension Manager

To install via the Joomla! Extension Manager, just follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Joomla administrator;
  2. In the menu, choose: Extensions >> Extension Manager;

  4. Select the search field and enter IP Login and hit enter;

FAQs

Installation

How can I install/upgrade IP Login?

You can either install IP Login by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating IP Login, you do not need to uninstall it first. The package will update all the files automatically.

Keep in mind that when you update to a major new version (or uninstall first), you might lose some configuration settings.


IP Login won't install...

If you have problems installing IP Login, please try the manual installation process as described here: docs.joomla.org/Installing_an_extension

How can I uninstall IP Login?

You can either uninstall IP Login by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

If you no longer use any NoNumber extensions, you can also uninstall the NoNumber Framework plugin by using the Joomla! core extension manager.

What are the minimum requirements?

IP Login will only work correctly if your setup meets these requirements:

  • Up-to-date version of Joomla:
    • Joomla 2.5.10 or higher
    • Joomla 3.4.1 or higher
  • PHP 5.3.13 or higher
  • PHP mbstring (Multibyte String) functions enabled
  • MySQL 5 or higher

Important: I can only provide support for setups that:

  • meet the above requirements;
  • do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.

Where can I download earlier versions?

You have access to all previous free versions of all extensions on this website.

If you have a subscription to an extension, you can also download any previous pro version of any extension on this website.

If you do not have a valid subscription, you can download any pro version that is older than 1 year.

You can find old versions in the changelog.

Note: Please note that I am unable to provide support on old versions! (whether you have a subscription or not).

How can I downgrade to an earlier version of IP Login?

If for some reason you need to install an older version, it is best to uninstall the extension first.

You will also have to uninstall the NoNumber Framework system plugin.

After that you can simply install the older version zip file using the Joomla! installer.

Note: Please note that I am unable to provide support on old versions!

How can I upgrade from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3?

The upgrade of Joomla itself is a one-click process. But that just takes care of Joomla.

Many templates and extensions will not work the same or at all after upgrading to Joomla 3.

I personally advise against using the built-in upgrade process, and advise starting from scratch by installing a fresh copy of Joomla 3.

If you do want to upgrade Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3, you will need to do this with regards to the NoNumber extensions you have installed:

  1. Disable or uninstall all NoNumber extensions.
    (Uninstalling NoNumber extensions will make you lose any global configuration settings for that extension. You will not lose any saved items)
  2. Upgrade Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.
  3. Re-install all NoNumber extensions you want installed.

For a detailed step-by-step migration process, see: https://docs.joomla.org/Joomla_2.5_to_3.x_Step_by_Step_Migration

Licensing

Under what license are NoNumber extensions released?

All free and paid NoNumber extensions are released under the Open Source GNU GPL v2.0 license.

See the Terms & Conditions for additional terms.

NoNumber Framework

What is the NoNumber Framework?

The NoNumber Framework is a Joomla! system plugin that is installed along with every NoNumber extension.

This plugin contains all the common functions and language strings that the NoNumber extensions use.

If you use any NoNumber extensions, this plugin must be installed and published. They will not function correctly or they will not function at all without it.

What is the NoNumber Elements plugin?

The NoNumber Elements system plugin is no longer used and has been replaced by the NoNumber Framework.

If you have been using NoNumber extensions for a long time you may still have this Elements plugin installed.

The NoNumber Elements plugin can safely be uninstalled IF your NoNumber extensions are up-to-date.

Functionality

It does the job!

Ease of use

Excelent

I like the additional security of Admin Tools' administrator access protector... unfortunately that makes logging in double the work.

This extension is a huge time saver. Just use the URL Access Key from your usual IP address, and voila.

You'll never get locked out either since it's just a shortcut. You can still access your site from your favorite coffee shop without any trouble.
Both frontend and backend login work like a charm. The concept is pretty cool, all I have to do is save a book mark and put it in my favorites tool bar. Now with a click of a button I can log in securely without the need of even clicking the login button. :-)

Good work Peter, this is another great extension of yours.
