Title: Theme Issues
Post by: Majik_Imaje on August 14, 2019, 02:05:47 PM
 Some of my members fo my forum are complaining they can't log in

server times out ??  I kept getting locked out of my forum yesterday , but when i changed themes everything was ok.

How to I remove or un-install  two themes.. I have a total of four - two that came with the  script and I tried to add two more and that is when my prblems began

I am using SMF 2.0.15
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Majik_Imaje on August 14, 2019, 03:18:34 PM
I was able to delete the two themes  that were causing me problems

Everything has been working GREAT for  two weeks no problems now all of a sudden people are having log in issues

but a member sent me this massage  could you see why I'm unable to login? I received a notification that stated something about changing my password. And when I tryed to login, something about try later, then something about my user name doesn't exist?

URL?
mods installed?

what theme(s) are you using?
Didyou apply the 2.0.14/2.0.15 login fix?

Did you convert from another forum software or do a recent upgrade from SMF 1.1.x?

I am currently using Curve but I much prefer  core

why would I need a log in fix from 2.0.14

I don't understand

Because Core didn’t get the fix.

Absolutely.  This does make me wonder though, why don't they fix it? Or remove the theme from the package, why distribute something which is broken.  This issue has cropped up a few times.

Same reason login via SSI was broken in 2.0.14: it was simply forgotten about. That said, I don’t know why it wasn’t fixed in 2.0.15.

I can understand it could have been forgotten, but I mean why can't one of the team grab the damn thing and repackage it with the fix?  It would probably take them less time than it would to answer one of these support topics.

Wonderful, Now can you translate  this for me?  I have only made one install using the package 2.0.15   So  from what I could understand  about that link you sent me,  I have to add some code    to a<form> in the pages mentioned
Is  that      about right ?????
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Arantor on August 16, 2019, 03:43:57 AM
Yes, that's exactly right, you have to look for some code in Themes/core/index.template.php and add some code to it so it will function correctly.
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Majik_Imaje on August 16, 2019, 03:51:55 AM

Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Majik_Imaje on August 16, 2019, 07:09:04 AM
Done deal.  I found  the file  index-template.php   I found the </form> tag
and right above that I inserted the  code...........so that's  It ??
Is there any way to test this ??  How do I know ?

Thanks for your expert help!
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Illori on August 16, 2019, 07:26:48 AM
if you can log in without issue, the fix has worked.
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Majik_Imaje on August 16, 2019, 11:23:58 AM
I thought this was fixed..........but I guess not......some people still can't log in

I found the   index  template php and placed the line of code   right above the </form
but when I went back to the forum.. I noticed a person was trying to log in for 1/2 hour and never got logged in

The install was installed two weeks ago from a 2.0.15 package

https://majikimaje.com/smf

I have the two default themes............. core  & curve    core is the theme that locks people out.

I have no idea what to do......and if I don't get this fixed soon I am going to loose all my members.
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: Majik_Imaje on August 16, 2019, 11:26:37 AM
Because Core didn’t get the fix.

so what do I do ??   the fix didnt fix anything and I know i inserted the line of code properly   and in the right place.
Title: Re: Theme Issues
Post by: lurkalot on August 16, 2019, 12:41:21 PM
There's two closing form tags in that index.template file, you sure you added it to the correct one ?

This is the one you want, around line 293

Find
Code: [Select]
echo '
<input type="hidden" name="hash_passwrd" value="" />
</form>';
}

Change to,
Code: [Select]
echo '
<input type="hidden" name="hash_passwrd" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="', $context['session_var'], '" value="', $context['session_id'], '" />
</form>';
}

<input type="hidden" name="', $context['session_var'], '" value="', $context['session_id'], '" />
</form>';
}



I did not close that <form tag when I posted, I didin't want to lose the text........I purposely left it open but yes I did insert that single line of code in the right place.
Now you give me two lines of CODE.............wonderful !!!

Now I noticed I have two files that  say   Index.template.php 20k 
the other file is   Index.template.php~ 20k

So I am supposed to go to  Line 293 and insert this ? 
Code: [Select]
echo '
<input type="hidden" name="hash_passwrd" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="', $context['session_var'], '" value="', $context['session_id'], '" />

Ok.......I will give that a try  once I hear back from you

Thing is some mods might make edits to that file when they install, so it depends on if they do or not.  If you uninstall them first, then upload the file, then re-install those mods you should be ok.

 That seems easier than trying to add  of those other lines of code.. I don't know which choice is right    #1 ?  #2?  or #3  all of them ??

I will un-install all of the mods.....refresh the page and then change index.template.php

I will be back to let you know what happened in a couple hrs

That file should be correct, according to the instructions. Are you saying it still doesn't work?

If it's no good, that means they must be trying to log in via one of the other forms in the software. For example, the Login button on the menu takes you to Login.template.php, and that would need editing too if that is what they are doing.

The edit to index.template.php only works if they are trying to log in via the "quick log in" form in the theme header (the one that is visible on all pages).

I have to wait to see what happens.

Personally I think it is an issue with firefox.
Every time, I am denied access or kicked out and can't get  back in. server timme outs etc

EVERY  TIME I switch to Chrome ............EVERYTHING IS FIXED

Recently 10  Java menus on the top of my home page would not work. 
Once I un-installed firefox and  downloaded a new copy they were all fixed.
So I will advise my users to use Chrome if they run into any problems.......

If Not,  I'll repeat  Arnold...........I'LL BE BACK

Shouldn't have any problems with Firefox.  Disable forum caching in Admin -> Server Settings -> Caching, clear forum cache, and clear browser history.  I'm sure you know that Chrome is spyware, don't you?

Does sound like you're having a js problem with FF.  It installs out-of-box with js enabled, you'd have to do something deliberate to disable it.  SMF uses js, but disabling it in FF doesn't affect login.

Post by: Sir Osis of Liver on August 17, 2019, 12:20:02 AM
If you clear all browser history in FF or IE, you have to login to all sites again, but there's an option to select which history you want cleared, so you can save cookies.  Don't use Chrome, but I believe it has the same option.  One of the problems we sometimes see here is login failure due to corrupt cookies.  The usual advice is to change cookie name in Server Settings, that logs out everyone and drops clean cookie when they log back in.  This only affects the forum, does not require clearing history.  Your original login problem was due to missing session check in Core theme, that should be fixed.

I was just going to ask you if there is any way I can test it..  so you want me to change the theme to core ?  Ok  I can do that, but usually that is when I get e-mails saying they can't log in

The edit to index.template.php only works if they are trying to log in via the "quick log in" form in the theme header (the one that is visible on all pages).

For reference:  I changed the one in index.template.php, This one I just tidied up because the code was already there and added by Majik_Imaje.   There was another which I also added the session check, in boardindex.template.php this one is for the login bar which resides below the Info Center at the bottom of forum index. 

Code: [Select]
echo '

Both those files need the session check added.  ;)

Nothing for you to worry yourself over.  ;)

That info was just for others thinking about fixing the Core theme for 2.0.15.  Just pointing out you have to add the fix to both those files.

As for no one logging into your site, well that's par for the course, mine are dead too.   ;)

Yeah, that's me.  Can you switch to Core theme, or make me admin and I'll play with it.

Login works fine in Core.  Do yourself a favor and pick a nice shiny responsive theme (https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?action=search;basic_search=responsive).  Core is a legacy, it was default theme for 1.1 branch, over 10 years old, some mods will not install in it and it's not responsive.  Couple of my guys are still using it, basically because their forums go back that far and their members are comfortable with it.  Doing some customizing with SychO's Nightbreeze here (https://www.ancientgreecereloaded.com/files/ancient_greece_reloaded_website/forum/index.php), he's put up several nice responsive themes.

Going offline shortly.  Do Eskimos play guitar?  Here's something for you -

I've already done that exactly that.  Added the session checks. Core theme works as expected. 

The fact that Curve was set to default from the start means that wasn't the issue in the first place, but as Majik_Imaje expressed an interest in Core, I went ahead and fixed it.

That I can agree with.  Why anyone would want to use Core nowadays is beyond me.  A responsive theme, or at the very least the "Responsive Curve Mod" would be on my shopping list.  ;)

Some of us find the design aesthetic of Core more pleasing the current trends of “flat” design.

I should make a responsive version sometime.

That's fair enough, I can understand that everyone's taste differs immensely.  I was going to say it's a bit like cars, but they are starting to all look the same. lol.. 

It doesn't do it for me at all, not in its current state.  That said a responsive version of it would make it more attractive user wise, so would be interested to see that.  ;)

What means  "Responsive" ??  it responds faster ??

99% of the themes i have sorted through are all FLAT

I like the core theme a lot  but I want a theme that is not so white.

Darker themes are easier on my eyes.

A responsive theme is designed to vary presentation so it displays correctly on mobile devices.  If you view a non-responsive theme on a phone, it will be scrambled and difficult to use.  Sadly, many people use phones to view websites, and this has imposed an additional burden on developers.  Remember the good old days when you only had to worry about different rendering engines?  <sigh>

When you get around to it, register at thekrashsite, can't keep track of support issues via email.
