Login issues with metamod...

Login issues with metamod...

Hi there, have installed and used metamod. I have started to have an erratic behaviour on my login.
So I have made some tests to isolate the problem, and this is what I found :
If I disable the metamod I can login OK, If I enable it I get "Session expired or cookies are not enabled in your browser. Please press "reload page" in your browser, and enable cookies in your browser. Please refresh/reload page before filling-in."
Any idea ? Any similar problem experienced?
I use Joomla 1.5, CB, and a bunch of other applications

Re: Login issues with metamod...

That's really strange. Can you tell me if the MetaMod was including the login module? And which login module was it? (e.g. CB / VM / standard).

Also can you post a URL for the site?

Re: Login issues with metamod...

Hello, thanks for your quick reply,
No the CB login is not in the list of modules affected by the metamod rules. Actually I have found a post with a similar problem on this forum. http://www.metamodpro.com/forums/topic?id=102
As for this user, my problem occur on very specific times of the day... Actually he reported a way to fix it but I am not sure how to do that.... Would you know ?

Re: Login issues with metamod...

dididounet,

if you know the times of day when the problem occurs, can you try to design a test during that time? I'd like to know what happens if you don't have MetaMod enabled, but you DO have all the modules that MetaMod was displaying, just assigned statically on the page.

I strongly suspect that it's one of these other modules that's causing the problem. I believe that other people with this problem are blaming modules or components that do AJAX calls into Joomla (and similar issues), that reset cookies or form values or something like that.

So it seems logical that perhaps MetaMod only seems to be involved, because it's only when MetaMod includes certain modules that you see the problem occurring.

Cheers,
Stephen
