Log in / Log out issue

  • I have installed bbpress on a Mac OS X 10.4 server, and all seems well with the exception of logging in and out using the Firefox browser. When i enter my login information and press login, the page looks as i it refreshes but does nothing. If i hit register, it says i am already logged in and from that page i can get to the main page of the forums and i am logged in.

    When i click log out, it also does not seem to change (still shows my user instead of login box).

    At first i thought this was only the browser, however after installing the same release of bbpress on a RHEL5 x64 Linux machine, i did not have this issue, even using the same browser/computer, and other combinations etc to try to get it to happen again.

    Anyone seen a problem like this?

    That used to happen here depending on which login box you used. I think it still does. You get a message in Firefox along the lines of “This page is redirecting in a way that will never resolve”.

    Discussion long ago about this very problem:

    I think since then, I’ve learned second hand that this does not work because referers are blocked by the browser or personal firewall. If referers were enabled, I don’t think it would happen. Maybe that’s why IE acts differently than FF. See this recent discussion:

    The odd thing is, the firefox browser i am using that gives me this issue only does it when i am viewing the forum on the Mac OS X server…

    The same browser works fine, logging in and out, when i am viewing the forum on the RHEL5 server….

    <~ Is an idiot

    The redirect fix worked…..

    Why it only gave issues on the mac side is still a mystery to me… but the login works as needed so who cares.

    Same issue happens with log out… happen to know which template page that would be? I am assuming i could probably use the same code snippet on that template page??

    Thanks for your help chrishajer!

    Hrm maybe it is the one labeled logged-in.php… DOH

    Not being a form, this doesn’t seem to work for logging out.

    Oh well, i can live with that.
