Cookie or Login Problems

I recently moved my SMF install to a new host, commercial that a friend had been using for some time. I'm having alot of login/cookie errors I would assume from what I'm seeing.

Basically, when someone logs in, they will often times get a blank white screen, and lots of times when I try to admin pages, I get the same results. Not sure on php settings, but for anyone with a better background to decipher this:

If there are any obvious issues please let me know. The host I went to seems very responsive.

Nice, where are you hosted?  At least from where I am, those pages are loading like lightning ^_^.

Latest Member: test.... loads fine for me, no login trouble, no slowdowns, everything seems fine.

Who is having these issues?  I'm currently using MSIE 6 SP1 on a Windows Media Center Edition PC.... I have, of course, never visited that site before and so I couldn't have any stale cookies.

By the by, I strongly recommend you add the following to your index template in the css:
input.check {background-color: transparent;}

This will make it so checkboxes don't have that ugly box around them. (imho it just looks horribly unprofessional to have the boxes, but that's why I added class="check" to *every* checkbox.)

The meta option also helps you out when you have redirect problems on IIS 5.0

You people chose to run a beta version of software then complain when you find bugs (well.. duh!) which the guy has already said will be fixed in a future beta release.

Now, I dont know about you but I think if software is free and in beta mode then you dont really have the right to get annoyed and constantly complain about it .. especially when the guys been trying to help you out no end with it.

I'm not sure whether my server is running under CGI or ISAPI ... can you tell me where this setting is shown on the phpinfo page?

http://www.praetorian-guard.com/phpinfo.php

Many of my users have been having issues, but I think the way my domain is set up might be part of the issue.  I have a forum located at www.praetorian-guard.com/alb-bed.  I have a domain that points to this ... www.albion-bedevere.com ... but the actual filepaths use the PG url ... it's kind of a shadow domain that's just easier for the users to remember.

The way my users "fix" their cookie issues is to go into Internet Tools,  Privacy, and "Allow" both domains ... this bypasses any cookie security settings and seems to be working.

I am waiting patiently for the next release - as I'm not a charter member I don't have access to beta 6 ... but in the meantime, can you tell me if there is anything I can do to fix this issue for my users rather than having to have them wrestle with their internet settings?  I'm sure you can imagine the level of expertise that most of them DON'T have ...

[Unknown]

Your server is using PHP in ISAPI mode. (not cgi)

While it may be a shadow, it's using a frame.  This is well known to cause cookie problem across the board.  Please consider using a physical redirect or script instead of frames...

I am using frames on the main PG site, but not on the Alb Bed forum ... unless you mean a different kind of frame?

This url:
http://www.albion-bedevere.com/

Had the following source:
<FRAMESET ROWS="*,0" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0>
<FRAME SRC="http://www.praetorian-guard.com/alb-bed/" NORESIZE>
</FRAMESET>


This is a frame, and because of it cookies are not being set properly.

You quote the good book brotha!  This "beta" version software is better than any other Final Release that I have seen.  And even though there are problems that I encounter from upgrade * to upgrade *, I still find more help from these folks than I have found anywhere else.  People ranting about their stuff not working, and moreover, compaining about the PEOPLE trying to fix it is just incredible to me.  But who am I?  Just a guy with an opinion.  :-\

http://www.sweepthis.com/phpinfo.php <-- am I running CGI or ISAPI? I don't know where to look.. =oP

See under Server API (sapi)?  It says Apache not IIS or CGI.

Now here's a strange thing.... my forums were working great but now all of a sudden a lot of users can't stay logged in anymore, including myself as admin.

here are the forums:

Why does this forum not use WYSIWYG Editor for posting purposes?

Is it then?  What do you propose that works well for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and even Safari at the very least?

And wysiwyg is not what it claims to be; it's wysiwywyg (what you see is what you wish you got.)

Furthermore, how is this pertinent to the topic you posted it in?  I consider this spam, because it's a feature request in entirely the wrong place.

The wysiwyg option in the likes of vB is junk IMHO, first thing I do when I register on a vB board with that enabled is turn it off. More a case of wysinwyg if you ask me, and slow and bloaty.

I agree :'( I don't like posting on vb forums with WYSIWYG on, I like it without lol. I often post less on forums with WYSIWYG, the one way to get rid of me :P BBCodes and manual stuff with textareas are good :), and don't take time to load. With Vb you have to wait till the whole editor loads to even begin typing, which can take awhile :P.
