Title: Hide administration login page
Post by: datahell on August 23, 2007, 20:58:43
Elxis 2008 allows you to hide administration login page! If you enable this option instead of the standard login page non-authorized users will see a general message while the real login page is only known to you. Moreover you can customize the appearence of this page though the template (login screen). For this reason we updated the login screen templates by adding one more file named hidden.php. This contains what the visitors see when he types administrator/ in the url.

So, new login screens have a structure like this:
- css/
- images/
- template_thumbnail.png
- index.php
- hidden.php
- templateDetails.xml

index.php contains the real login form.
hidden.php is the content for the un-authorized users.

Compatibility with the 2006.x login screens:
If hidden.php file does not exist then the one from the default login screen is displayed.
If the default login screen does not exist too then Elxis creates a standard information screen for un-authorized users.

The real login page can be named whatever you wish!

Examples of real login page urls:
- http://www.mysite.com/administrator/secret-login.php
- http://www.mysite.com/administrator/elxislogin.php
- http://www.mysite.com/administrator/sample_login.php
