View Full Version : Logging out
August 1st, 2007, 06:58 PM
i can seem to log out. After I click on logout a screen appears confirming that i logged out. Then I am automatically sent back to the home page and logged in. What do I have to do to reduce this potential security threat.

I would suggest you check to ensure both your photopost and forum cookies are both set like this
cookie path /
cookie domain .domain.com
It would appear your setting two separate cookies

Changed the path to .domain.com and that let me log out. Now it won't let me login. I click on Login, The screen says it was successful, then it takes me to to homepage and the Admin and "Logout" links aren't present at the top. What do I need to do? Thanks

I hope you mean you set it to your domain name with a period in front right?

No, I set it to .domain.com. Trying to do exactly as you say...

That was an example you need to set it to your domain name I would not know what that is

I will go back in and change that.
The problem is I can't get back in. I tried to login from another computer on our network and it didn't work there either. What should I do?

After I enter my user name and password, the Login Successful page appears, Then it takes me back to the home page where I am not logged in - no Admin or Logout links at top. Tried logging in from another computer but it had the same problem. How do I get in?

You can use vbulletin sql window if your photopost is in the same database as your vb
UPDATE pp_settings SET setting='.domain.com' WHERE id=173

I don't have vb on my site yet (maybe in a few months). Since I do not have vb, how do I get in?
Not sure what the "Update" is for in your message above.

Thats a query I thought you had vb well it would help here to support you if you told me a url to a site and posted a test login
August 2nd, 2007, 02:59 PM
I don't know how to create a test login, especially since I can't login. I can email my admin login/password if you provide your email to me.

You should be fine now

Sweet! You are the man!
I am going to work on the other issues I posted.
