How to make a login link in Joomla 1.5 is asked quite regularly in forums.
Here's how to do it and add a bit of interactivity with the user.
Code updated 18.10.2010 to latest J1.5-21
The first way is to add a menu item to the login screen.
In the Menu Manager select "New" and type "External Link".
The url to use is http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_user&view=login
You can also add it directly in your template at a suitable position and style it appropriately -
If we want to add a bit of user interactivity then we first need to get the users name with a JFactory call and store it in a variable which we place in the php section of the template -
$username =& JFactory::getUser();
Then we can use this to greet the user if they are logged in and also provide a logout link.
