Why you use login2?
The right url would be http://curefans.com/index.php?action=login and
this work fine on your side.

Probably because it’s failing on the actual “user has entered a password” step (login is the form, login2 is the handler)

I did go to the site and see that the login pop up also doesn’t work properly :( just returns “error”.

could you guys advise on disable the login popup and instead just redirecting the login link to http://curefans.com/index.php?action=login ?

Only way to remove it is to remove the reqOverlayDiv call on it, there’s no option for it. But would be better to fix the error...

Or setting subdomain independent cookies - the issue looks to be caused by session mismatch between www. and non-www. use.

that's because you have to disable local storage of cookies, but you clearly can't even edit those settings, you need to fix that

And the clue is the big “Settings.php is readonly” message up top...
