we've got you covered!

Whether you want to create a new SEF URL for this page, or you have lost your Joomla login link, or are simply looking for the Joomla user login module, you can very easily access it if you follow this article

User Login Page (Frontend)

On any J! based website, adding the link above to your root URL will take you to the Joomla user module / page which contains the functions for logging in. This is a question which we see repeatedly out there, so glad we are able to quickly answer it for you ;)

...there is no real logout link - to access the Logout link, simply click to the login page above, and the Logout button will be displayed (if you are logged in)

We should have covered all aspects and area of the Login Link functionality with the above suggestions, but of course, if there is an area which we still have not covered, we'd be happy to look at it and cater for it. Please ask us in the comments below, and we'll make sure we cover it for you.
