Hi,

anybody can help me out here... i can't login in IE 6. remove cache and everything and reset the browser  still can't get in. but in FireFox i can...

i even upgraded IE from 6 to 7 and restart PC. still can't login using IE 7...

the weird thing is that... other users can login using both (IE, FF) browsers. but others cant login both browser.

1st user can login both
2nd user can login FF but not in IE
3rd user can't login both

please drop some thoughts here.. really appreciated..

Make sure you have IE set to allow cookies.
PM at your own risk, some I answer, if they are interesting, some I ignore.

noister

yes it is allowed. but can't login.

Tyrsson

Please provide a test account with standard permissions so that someone can look into it further.

In the server settings area what are the cookie settings?

only the login redirection mod.

What happens if you uninstall that mod?

Also, what method did you use to install the forum? Did you install using the SMF installer or with a script like Fantastico?

ok here's the test account info: user: testuser, pw: testuser

server settings -> core config

Cookie Name = SMFCookie829

server settings -> feature config

Enable local storage of cookies = uncheck
Use subdomain independent cookies = check

Switch these two values to opposite of what they are now.

Is your forum bridged with another system such as Joomla etc?

noister

yes it bridges but not joomla and not other open source software.

but i tried already what you want to change on the setting and it's not working well. the same i can't login in IE.

Tyrsson

Which login are you trying to use in IE? Try using the main login instead of the quick login.

Tyrsson

Well I took a look at your site. As best I can tell you are not using the SMF login. I am pretty sure you are using the login for the cms that smf is bridged with. Can you please create me an account if possible and PM me the details with a link back to this topic as well.

Tyrsson

I have not been able to find anything out of the ordinary that would cause anything beyond the normal problems experienced with IE. Normally the only problem with IE is when using the quick login. Since this forum is bridged with a system that is not open source you may want to speak with the support people for the system you are bridged with.

this is very weird  >:( i can login using other computer... this is maybe because on my main pc IE browser.

Tyrsson

Yep most likely. Try lowering the security level in IE and try to login from your pc. IE is a pain when it comes to security and such.

yes i lowered the cookie now (that accepts all cookies). but still the same....  >:(

Well since you can login with IE on another system that means its most likely the browser settings or some type of system problem that applies to your pc. There is no way that I know of to change the settings etc so that a user can login regardless of the settings of their browser. If a member or a registrant has their browser set to not accept cookies or has some type of problem such as lack of jscript/java with their browser there is no way to know that. In the end it is up to the end user to have their pc setup to where they can access the site.
