View Full Version : Admin CP - weird login screen appears?
December 4th, 2005, 09:03 PM
I just upgraded to PP 5.2.1 (seems to be working fine) but when I click on the admin link I get a really weird screen and if I login to it it actually logs me out?
btw, I have PP integrated with vB 3.5.1

You have not properly entered the vbulletin cookie prefix in your cookie settings so it is asking you to login.
Once you relog in check your cookie settings and set bb in the cookie prefix. Double check your vbulletin config file to be sure as thats where the cookie prefix is but by default it is bb.

don't think that is it, I don't use a bb prefix and I did not before I upgraded either, I checked my old config-inc.php and it is set the same.
I am logged in and I can post photos, but when I click on the admin link it brings me to the PP login screen.

Sorry this is your issue.
Vbulletin by default has a cookie prefix of bb and this is entered right in there config file. You must enter this in the Photopost cookie config.
Your logged in the front end cause we load the vb headers etc. However on the backend you need to make sure things are configured correctly so it authenticates.

where exactly is this cookie setting in PP?

The cookie settings are in the admin control panel. If you login with that box you should get in and be able to enter the cookie prefix
If not you can use phpmyadmin to change the cookie prefix setting 172 in the photopost settings table of the database
