Don't know how to access an archived version of the site you saw when you were logged in back in '05, but our forum has a transcript of (probably) all of it, over here. The only thing you lose out on is the nifty design the page had with its clickable calendar days and whatnot.
(EDIT: Oh and the site was obviously TheNamelessNovel.com, but I assumed you knew that and asked for a url to put into the Web Archive, that gets you past the log-in page, which I don't have.)

I was hoping to access the site since I never had the opportunity to when it was active. I was unaware that it required a Log In. Have you tried logging in using the Wayback Machine? The landing page is accessible, but the design has fallen away.

I have tried and it seemed to just refresh. I'm no Wayback Machine expert, though, and maybe there is a way around it. But even if there was a workaround, it might have all or most of the pictures missing due to broken links.
Pretty sure we'll just have to make due with the transcripts. Tbh, half the fun was in participating in this virtual chalk chase as it gradually unfolded, so once it's over that's gone... sorry. It really was an ingenious bit of marketing. Maybe Netflix will take a cue in their marketing of the next two LS'sASoUE seasons.
Logging in and similar features don't work in the Wayback Machine unfortunately, no. You can access a full list of all pages and files from the TheNamelessNovel.com domain available in the Wayback Machine from this link, but unfortunately it seems that nearly all of the content was pulled from CSS files that didn't get archived.
I seem to recall that the domain was permitted to lapse, and indeed didn't long survive the book it was intended to promote. A great shame, as it was by far the most interesting piece of Snicket promotion they ever came up with, even if it turned out largely to be a haul of red herrings. I don't think I have any pictures of the site interface saved, but if you dig around long enough, perhaps you will find one. I also thought I remembered a mirror of the site being posted on 667 at one point, though it has been many years so in all likelihood that too will have expired.
Cafe SalMONAlla: one time my lecturer hammered into us all that using long quotes in essays was a bad idea and *shudder* OPENING an essay with a quote was unthinkable
