Drupal user login page

Drupal user login URL FAQ: What the heck is my Drupal user login URL?

A funny story about this Drupal website (devdaily.com) is that after I first installed it with my own custom theme where I don't display the Drupal login link, I couldn't remember where the Drupal user login page was located. With my Drupal theme changes I didn't have a link to the Drupal login page anywhere on my Drupal website pages.

After a little bit of poking around, I finally realized the Drupal login page is located at this pretty obvious URI:

/user

Given that URI, that means that for this devdaily.com website, the complete Drupal user login URL is:

http://devdaily.com/user

Other Drupal login related URLs

While I'm in the Drupal login neighborhood, here are three more URLs. The Drupal user registration URL will look something like this:

http://www.devdaily.com/user/register

The Drupal user "request new password" URL will look like this:

http://www.devdaily.com/user/password

And wherever there is a Drupal login page, there is probably a Drupal logout page, and by default the Drupal user logout URL looks like this:

http://www.devdaily.com/logout

Drupal user pages

As a final note, if a Drupal website supports user accounts, by default you'll be able to find the Drupal user account pages at URLs similar to this:

http://www.devdaily.com/users/alvin

More generally then, the the URI for a Drupal user page looks like this:

/users/username

As you can see by looking at my page, a "Drupal user" page shows information about the Drupal user. This page is easily customized, and is likely different for most Drupal websites.

Drupal login problems

As a final note, if you're having a problem logging into your own Drupal website, even though you're sure you have the right username and password, see my article titled "Help, I can't login to my Drupal website after an upgrade". While that article talks about problems after a Drupal upgrade, I've seen the same login problem happen under other circumstances.

Simple login link...

This was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a static link that I could book mark that would either take to the login page if I wasn't already logged in, or show that I was already logged in if I was. Just a simple "/user" indeed does the trick.
