I have to requirement that magento front end contain admin login at the footer. I have done template. I need to redirect the page to admin credential checks controller after submitting admin username and password.. is their any idea,
Try to make your form submit to
There is not controller that handles the submission of the admin login form.
In the backend the login form has no action.
The login is handled by
Mage_Admin_Model_Observer::actionPreDispatchAdmin this is the observer for the event
controller_action_predispatch for the admin area.
