View Full Version : 5.2 to 5.21 and now a small login problem
December 13th, 2005, 04:59 AM
Hi, I just upgraded to 5.21 and now when I am logged it (vb intergration) and click on the admin link it sometimes takes me to the photopost login page. If I login here it then sometimes takes me back to the index and I have to try again. It happens in all browsers. Any ideas?

It mostly happens when I close the browser and open a new one. It still says I am logged in when viewing photos and I can upload, its just when I try and get into admin it redirects me.

Any ideas? Or what file should I look at to try and figure it out myself?

Your cookie prefix is not set correctly.
Login to photopost with the photopost login go to admin cookie settings and change the cookie prefix to bb. You can verify in the vbulletin config.php file in there includes directory the exact cookie prefix

Oh it is set at bb . I just uploaded the modified files from the upgrade, my config file is the same. When I click on admin and it redirects me to the photopost login page and I click on "login Problems" my "Current Site Cookie Information" says
So it says am logged in, so why won't it allow me to access admin?

Like I said it doesn't happen all the time.

Garry you need to post a url and test login.
Your cookie prefix and or your vblicense number can not be set right if you can not get into admin

I created a test account with admin privileges for you but I can't replicate it with that account. It only happens every now and again for me, its only a small problem as users have no problem logging in.
I messages you the login details, but whether you have any problems.
I can get into admin, its just every now and then I can't, even though it says I am logged in.

Well it would sound to me like possible computer related? You use Norton?

Well I finally figured out what was wrong, I have a install on localhost and forgot to change my "PhotoPost Cookie Domain" it was still set on my domain name :/
