error: session timed out"
« on: April 15, 2018, 09:24:58 PM »
The entire error message says, "Your session timed out while posting. Please go back and try again."

I was not posting. I was trying to log in from another device to check how it looks. Frustrated there, I went back to the desktop and was unable to log in there as well.

Clicking on the back link below the message just reloads the page complete with the error message - and i am unable to login.

Hi Joehark,

What version of SMF are you using?

You're using the Core theme, and as far as I'm aware still has the login check missing.

Either add the manual fix to the theme, https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Login_error_2.0.14

Or even easier, install this mod which should fix it. https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=4167
