  • Direct link to admin cp

    I forgot what the coding is to put your username and password into a link to get right into the admin cp. Did a format and forgot to save all of my links.

    My understanding is that this will no longer worh with vB3 for security reasons.

    Of course you do NOT want to put such a link anywhere on your site!

      Hopefully it will be allowed to be enabled, I run a medium sized board and I about went crazy not being able to have a cookie or direct link till I found it.

        It's a massive security risk though...if say a site looks at it's recent referrers, and sees the URL you use, it will have your username and password in the URL, they can just go to the forum and login as you

          How would you be shown websites via the Admin CP? I have to go to my server stats program to view that, different username and password.

            You browser send the reffered site in your header.

            For instance, if you go to and from that page go to, excite will see you came from yahoo. Just replace yahoo with your user name and password

                You will have to create this on your own. If you desire this in vBulletin 3.0, you will have to rewrite the code to circumvent the security put into the system. We will not redo things to lower security.

                  At the very least, cookie it. The rest of the board is cookied and it could likely be done.

                    As a customer I'd prefer they stick to the highest security settings. Typing in your pass and username is not that slow, is it?
