And how can I do that, willr? Sorry, I'm a noob at Silverstripe. ;)
I think he means in your URL bar, in your browser.
I've same problem. I'm not entering into CMS in any way ( I've added Security::setDefaultAdmin in my _config.php, also ).
Browser give me login page...
This is a bug. The log in as someone else feature was adding in 2.3.2 and it does not always redirect successfully. All you need to do is edit the url to site.com/admin again and you should be in the admin panel.
I am currently experiencing this behavior on a client's SS 2.4.2 website, and it is less than optimal when they are trying to gain access to the CMS admin.
Has a resolution to this bug been found? It would be nice if the post-login redirect actually worked again. As it is now, once they enter in the url of "http://<DOMAIN>/admin" - it takes them to the login form - they login successfully, but it just loads up the login form page again with the "You're logged in as..." message with a button to login as someone else - without ever redirecting back to the CMS admin.
Any assistance on this would be helpful - do I need to create a login form decorator object to handle this?
Requiring the client to modify the URL after they login is kind of gludgey. :)
