Session timeout/verification problem
« on: March 17, 2008, 07:54:38 PM »
I recently ran into this problem on a forum I'm starting up. Didn't have any problems for while, but now when posting it often responds with a "session timed out" message, and then when attempting to access the admin panel it gives this:

An Error Has Occurred!
Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.

When I try and logout to re-login, it gives the same message. The only way to solve it seems to be to delete the cookies for the site, but I keep having to go through this process so obviously a real solution is needed. Multiple forum members are having the same problem.

SMF Version: 1.1.4
Forum: [nonactive]

(This all seemed to start shortly after installing a new theme, can that possible have anything to do with it? It is giving me this too now: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: tportal_version() in /home/content/h/i/p/hiphopi5/html/forum/Sources/Load.php(1733) : eval()'d code on line 330)

All help is appreciated!

Do you have TinyPortal installed? Did you uninstall it by any chance because I don't see it there?

If you are using TinyPortal and want to use a custom theme, you have to make sure that the theme is compatible with it first.

You can give it a quick test to see if it is the theme issue. Switch back to the default theme to see if you still have those session issues.

I had the same problem.
I not figure out why it happened, I just roll back my php.ini and all become workable again.

I think your issue is the theme, and is a theme that is primarily designed or hardcoded to work with TP.  The fact you don't have that mod installed it's causing you the errors.  Get a pure SMF base version of the theme and you should be fine.
