How To Login Without Clicking on Login

Let's say your accidentally removed your login block from your display pages. So it's nowhere displayed on your drupal pages. If you logout (or get logged out automatically), you won't find your login form anywhere on your site.
If you need to login to your website and don't have a login form, you can access your login via


Accessing this URL by typing in your domain and then "/?q=user" from your drupal base directory and a login form will automatically appear for you to login.

This is especially useful when you accidentally or purposely hide your login and you need to logon as admin (user #1) to administer and configure your website.

Drupal Help

I discovered this site earlier: http://www.rhinocerus.net/drupal-blogs

Some of the content is kinda outdated (circa 2006 and for 4.7x) but some syndication and user posts are new and updated. They have some pdf resources avaialable for download. It's good for offline reference and as a handbook.

It seems like the subsite has been abandoned and works unmonitored cause when you click on Home, it goes to a discussion board on various programming languages.
