Deleted User Login Control or Changed Login and Delete Page in DotNetNuke and cannot login

 

During a recent reconfiguration of a client’s site – we encountered this.

Our situation was this: We created a Sign-In page – and under Admin—>Settings – we set the login to use this page. We do this frequently when we stand up a site on a static IP that needs SSL.

At some point later, the Account Login control gets deleted – and regardless of why – it does – and our Sign-In page renders a blank login.

First thoughts are to try to navigate and force the login control using

 

www.mysitename.com/default.aspx?ctl=login

 

However, this fails because we setup the login to redirect to our custom Sign-In page.

Thank you very much to John Mitchell’s post and fix for this. NOTE: This works in DNN 4.9 – we do not know about later versions.

Hopefully this will help others out there that shoot their foot off periodically :)
