Need access to a WordPress install but don’t want to create a new user account? Use this plugin and WP-CLI to generate a one-time login URL for any existing user:

wp plugin install one-time-login --activate && wp user one-time-login <user>

After you run the command, you’ll see a success message like this:

Success: Your one-time login URL is:

Copy the URL, paste it into your web browser, and… voila!

Feel free to file issues and pull requests against the project on Github.

How can I help?

Hit me at [email protected] with a short note about what you'd like to do.

My roots are WordPress and publishing, and I love pretty much everything related to web development (architecture, performance, security, etc.). When not working with clients, I also maintain WP-CLI (WordPress' command line interface) and other open source projects.
