  • May I ask why you are doing this? Aren't you concerned about storing an unencrypted password in this url string? Commented Oct 23, 2018 at 22:41
  • You're going to want to do this via a token, as opposed to displaying the password in the URL

  • For the record, a url's querystring begins with a ? and subsequent key-value pairs are delimited with &. Commented Oct 25, 2018 at 7:37

I haven't tested it but it looks like the free plugin from Acyba will do this for you: https://www.acyba.com/acymailing/282-auto-login-newsletter-joomla.html

The plugin is designed so that links in newsletter emails can contain the username and password as parameters for login but you don't have to include the link to a newsletter.


yes indeed, it works with the acymailing plugin from the free version of acymailing.

Install it and in the plugin options select "plain text for password"

Then try with the following: https ://siteadresshere?user=userhere&passw=passwordhere
