Site seems to have some login issues...when on the Profile page, I clicked "Downloads" and it tells me "Please Log In to edit your profile.".

In fact...every part of it seems to work that way.

you go to the site, currently logged out... at the top, next to the drop down it shoudl say "log in / register". click on my profile, it should show the login form and say you must log in to edit your profile.

you enter your login info, click login, it should take you back to the my profile the top of the page, when you're in the my profile area, it says

Log Out 'Nodtveidt'


then, when you click on articles/downloads etc it says 'please log in to edit your profile'?

did i get that right?

Now it doesn't let me log in at all...just goes back to the login page. However, it does shove the username into the registration field...

And yeah, you got that right. :)

do you have cookies disabled for the site?

if so when it goes back to the front page, does it have the php session id in the address bar?

if so, when you change pages, is the sessionid still in the address bar?

The Login link from the front page contained a sessionid in the URL. It went to login.php just fine, but still didn't allow me to login. When I went back to the main page by manually entering the URL, the sessionid disappeared from the link to login.php, and no sessionid appeared in the address bar after attempting to log in. Cookies are enabled.

EDIT: Now, instead of just going back to the login page, it returns me to the main page, un-logged-in. The sessionid is appearing in the address bar though.

Tried it from Eclipzer's link (using the www.) and still no luck. Tried using IE as well, same result. Still get the sessionid in the URL though.

EDIT: Clicking on "Log In/Register" now tells me that the password is invalid...even if I haven't even entered one yet.

EDIT2: Cleared cookies in IE and attempted to log in, it seems to have worked. Will let you know if anything else "breaks".

EDIT3: Worked in Firefox also. Looks like you had a cookie problem before but it's fixed now. Good deal. :D

Everything seems to work fine now...what broken link are you referring to?

It stopped working again. I went to enter my username and pass but entered the wrong pass. Obviously, it told me that the pass was wrong, so I put in the correct pass. It went back to the main page without logging me in. So, I went back to the login page and cleared the cookies again, then attempted a login, making sure I had the right password. No luck. Something seems to still be wrong with your cookie implementation.

EDIT: I think I know what it'd be then...are you clearing the cookie on a failed password? If not, then that could be the problem.

EDIT2: Just went to the site again today (tis Jan 12th at 9:11PM AST) and noticed I wasn't logged in. Entered username and password correctly, it didn't log me in. Login page says "incorrect password" when I click on the "Log In" link from the main page, despite not only having entered my password correct THIS time but LAST time as well..

This report site is a cool idea.

I happily registered. No problems logging in here.

Site looks good. But the main top links bar (in grey) are a little hard to see, under IE5 @ 800x600 with my crappy monitor.
