Login button doesn't work

Postby StuartL » Fri May 11, 2012 2:01 am

I've been having login troubles for a while now and I've just spotted what the problem is...

If I log in from the 'login' link at the bottom of the board index it always works.

If I log in from the 'login' link at the top right of a forum index page it never works.

Stuart,

Assuming I am doing the same thing that you are describing....both work for me.

Can you provide some additional details like screen shots and urls?

Heh, ok, now I come to test things I find an interesting new problem... I can't find the log out link :)

I have no idea why the default forum board style doesn't show a logout option, but the custom "AeroBlue" style does.

....change your forum style to AeroBlue (user control panel -> board preferences) and the logout option will be in the upper right corner....

Ok, can reproduce it consistently in the default theme (i.e. when not logged in).

Logging in from the board index (either at the top right or by clicking 'login' at the bottom left) works.

Clicking on the 'general' forum (taking you to viewforum.php?f=4) and then logging in using the username/password form on the top right (with or without the keep-me-logged-in tickbox) doesn't work.

Ahhh....that correction makes a difference.

Trying to log in when not at the top-level board index is not working.

I'll ask our forum-meister to look into it.

I'll have a look.
Thanks for taking the time to describe the problem in some detail.
That makes spotting the fault a lot less daunting.

Regards,
Ronald

Ps : amazing when you think of it : it went undetected for so long....

I have gotten the logout button on the index page to work.

however, login from other pages remains "out of order".
I cannot find the problem.
