Changing the Please login first text in Joomla 2.5
Joomla 2.5 has reached its end of life as for 12/31/2014. Please be advised this may be a security risk to your website. You can view more information about the end of life here.
In our previous Joomla 2.5 tutorial, we walked you through the steps for preventing public access to your pages. When someone attempts to access a blocked page, they receive this message:
In this tutorial, we are going to walk you through the steps for changing the Please login first text to something more appropriate, such as Only registered users can access this page.
To change the Please login first text in Joomla 2.5:
- Log into your Joomla 2.5 admin
- In the top menu, hover over Extensions and click Language Manager
- In the list of tabs, click the Overrides tab
- Click New in the to right menu
- Under search Text you want to change type in Please login first
- Ensure Value is selected and then click Search
- Under the Search Results, click Please login first
- Under Create a new override, enter Only registered users can access this page as the Text, and then click Save in the top right menu.
After saving these changes, attempt to access your registered only page again, and you will see the Please login first text has been updated!

Working with Users in Joomla 2.5
2012-06-14 6:13 am
I am developing a site with Joomla 2.5. The problem is that when an item for registered users is chosen, and the user is not logged in, an empty page displays instead of the "Login first" page!
What should be the problem?

Hello Jagdish, and thanks for your comment,
If you would like to force a Joomla login prompt on a certain group of users in Joomla like below:
Then you can restrict access to Joomla articles by changing that article's Access setting from Public to Registered.
Please let us know if you had any other questions at all!
