I’ve worked across hundreds of clients with WordPress, developing themes, plugins, integrations, etc. For the most part, a tried and tested theme or plugin that has a great rating and reputation operate seamlessly on a client site. But, every so often, a plugin or theme will throw a bug or may even take down the site altogether.
This week, I actually had an issue on our corporate site where updating the Elementor Plugin (which I highly recommend as a visual page builder) initiated a process to update settings in the database. The process started but never finished… and if I clicked on it to manually finish it, my site would error.
I contacted the support team at Elementor since there was nothing I could actually do to correct the problem. They quickly responded and asked for temporary access to the site with administrative permissions and recommended the Temporary Login Without Password plugin, a plugin developed by the Store Apps team.
Temporary Login Without Password WordPress Plugin
Within minutes, I loaded and activated the plugin, and had a direct URL to enter into the ticket that provided them with the access they needed. Best of all, it didn’t require registration on their part at all.
This is a fantastic plugin because it doesn’t require you to have to go back and delete the account you created, making you vulnerable to a bunch of unused accounts that may have easy passwords to hack.
The plugin is everything you need, providing the following features:
- Create unlimited temporary logins
- Create temporary logins with any role
- No username and password are required. Login with just a simple link
- Set account expiry. So, a temporary user can’t login after the expiry time
- Various expiration options like one day, one week, one month, and many more. Also, set a custom date
- Redirect user to a specific page after login
- Set a language for a temporary user
- See the last logged in time of a temporary user
- See how many times a temporary user accessed your setup
I’m so impressed with the plugin that I’ve added it to our list of Best WordPress Plugins for your business site.
