CMS Backend Opener: A FireFox Extension to Quickly Locate the Login Page to Popular CMS Backends

If you use FireFox and manage multiple websites that use different Content Management Systems and have a hard time keeping track of the various URLs to their backends, consider using the CMS Backend Opener FireFox extension created by Andy R.

Once installed, you can use either a keyboard shortcut (Alt + Y) or press a button within the browser and it will automatically open the login page for the detected CMS in a new window.

The extention uses the CMS meta-tag: Generator to detect which CMS is being used. The following CMS’ are supported:

Typo3 Typo3 Neos Joomla WordPress Django Shopware (beta) Magento (beta) Drupal Contao Weblication WebsiteBaker CMSQLite Oxid

Although the extension has not been updated in two years, I tested it on FireFox 67.0.4 on my MacBook Pro and it worked without any issues. I typically use a bookmark to browse to WP-Admin but this is more convenien , especially on WordPress.com.

I’ve also learned that if you have Pretty Permalinks enabled in WordPress, you can type /login or /admin after your domain and it will typically load the login page.
