*** 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
