Joomla K2 Users and Editors - where do they login?

Posted on 2011-09-20
Last Modified: 2012-06-20

This is for administrators only - when I try to login with an editors login it gives me the below error.

You do not have access to the administrator section of this site.

Where does this user / editor login?

You need to enable front end logging in (possibly this option is in your theme options).
If its not in theme options, you'll need to check there is a module that is enabled.

then can go to

Create a login module and put it on your home page or something like that.  It will integrate with K2.

What version of Joomla do you have?  I can give you step-by-step directions on how to do that.

Basically, you are looking to do something like this correct?

OK, to open up the general Login module I would do this:

Go to Module Manager
Create new module: Login
Set all of your configuration settings like: Title, position, pages it should appear on, etc...
Publish module
Go to page to verify that module is published.
Login with registered or editor credentials to verify that you can login.

To login with the K2 default login module:
Go to Module Manager
Locate K2 Login module
Publish the module, set the position of the module, and the pages it should appear on.
Go to page to verify that module is published and users can sign-in/out.

Please let me know if this helps.

That's interesting.  Which login module were you trying to use?

Also, is it happening again today?  Seems like the error is pointing to not enough memory installed on your machine or the server...

Were you able to determine which login module you were using?  Also, can you try a the other login module to see if you get the same results?
