Log on problem w/ 14
« on: June 18, 2017, 02:32:25 PM »
Since the .14 upgrade, we're having problems logging on, it says : session timed out while posting.
You can't log on on that screen, please, if your not helping don't post. 
Good thing it's a forum,  or I would choke you.

This is probably classed as "not helping", but if you look at some of the topics posted in the past 48 hours you might see your issue addressed already. Several times.

Yup...  what he said.  It's been addressed several dozen times.

Specifically, it has to do with your custom theme not being properly modified and you are going to have to manually add in the correct code edits, specifically to the login code

If your custom theme has a login form such as in the index.template.php or boardindex.template.php or in the login.template.php

The SMF 2.0.14 now requires the following code added in the <form> tag  just add in the closing </form> tag in any login form.

Code: [Select]
<input type="hidden" name="', $context['session_var'], '" value="', $context['session_id'], '" />

This code is used to help increase security for SMF.

FYI, this bug also seems to affect some forums running Curve, I'm working on one now, here.  This has been reported in other topics.

This is not a bug. This is a deliberate security fix that due to limitations in the package manager custom themes may need to make the edit manually or have the theme author update the theme to include this token in the login form.

As has been pointed out in other topics, this problem occurred in Curve.  The linked topic is pretty much an out-of-box install, no mods, no other themes.  Looks like she was running 2.0.13 in php 5.6, patched to .14, and login failed.

I know, I posted that as a point of information, as it seems to be related to this login problem.
