If user logged in to front-end, is it possible to auto logged in to Control Panel ?

How automatically be logged in to both the Control Panel and front-end at the same time ?

This is what happens anyway (at least with Super Admin accounts). Maybe the more recent versions of EE introduce an extra level of security but I just tested this on a site running 2.6.1 and logging in on the front end also allowed me to access the CP without having to log in again.

  • I can confirm that this is indeed correct:) unless the member group doesn't have access to the CP I can't see any reason why this wouldn't be the case. Commented Mar 25, 2014 at 22:55

If you don't appear to be check that your base URLs match - IE you aren't logged in at a "www." URL and viewing at a non-www url. Or vice-versa.
