If you accidentally removed the component in your page. You can manually access the page via

As for the Logout link,

Customising Login links to User-friendly link

For those who are new to Joomla here are the steps to create a user-friendly link (or alias) for the login page. For example, user will be able to login via, http://<your-webpage>/login.

Its pretty straight-forward, so I've screenshot the steps below.

Customising the layout of the login page

If you are looking for the layout of the login form, you can FTP to /components/com_user/views/login/tmpl/ folder to edit the files.


  1. How do I change the default login page?

  2. You mean changing the layout or changing the links to the page. If its the latter, I don't think you can change the link, but you can add a alias (user-friendly link) to point to the login page in your site.

    Anyway, I've updated the page. Hope it helps.

  3. Heard about this site from my friend. He pointed me here and told me I’d
    find what I need. He was right! I got all the questions I had,
    answered. Didn’t even take long to find it. Love the fact that you made
    it so easy for people like me. More power
