Forcing a Login (SOLVED)

*** I figured this out ***

You can force a login by issuing this url:


I'm using a CustomLoginForm, but this doesn't work. I get an error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function getSession() on a non-object in /home/www/sites_on_nfs/public/radimage/htdocs/sapphire/core/Session.php on line 57

Here is my CustomLoginForm:

class CustomLoginForm extends MemberLoginForm {

   // this function is overloaded on our sublcass (this) to do something different
   public function dologin($data) {
      $email = Convert::raw2sql($data['Email']);
      //$accountenabled = 1; //Convert::raw2sql($data['AccountEnabled']);
      //Check to see if member already is in the db using their email address
//      $Members = DataObject::get("Member", "Email='$email' and AccountEnabled = '$accountenabled'");
      $Members = DataObject::get_one("Member", "Email='$email' AND AccountEnabled = 1");
      if ($Members) {      
      //   parent::doLogin($data);
      } else {
         $data = null;

         //if member is not enabled - void login
      //   $data['Password'] = 'no';
      //   parent::doLogin($data);
   //      Director::redirect('runqueuea');


} //class
