  • Registration errors

    All new users who attempt to register (and some registered users) on my site are getting this error, just after register:

    Sorry, you are not authorized to view this page.
    Please try logging in or logging in as different user Login or send a message to the admin
    They cant see any of my forum pages... already check the user group manager and it seems normal:

    You said you checked the Usergroup Manager, but could you have changed the permissions under Channel Management > Channel Permissions > find forum/usergroup?

      My forum its 3 months old, fresh install, did not change any forum permissions. Some registered users can login normally some cant... as far as i can test all new users cant see the content of the site after login

        It is possible that my forum sets an "antispam" filter/mode? and thats why new users cant login normally

        Please i need help

          When did this start happening? No third party addons? You've tried using the default style and language?


          • #6
            - Im using default style, just change footer to add Google Analytics
            - No third party addons
            - Default languaje: "English", translated some words to spanish using "Phrase Manager"

            I noticed this a few days ago, when one of my users report this issue... Im running Version 5.0.4

              Please help, my site is useless right now... whats the point to have a forum where people cant register?


              • #8
                Its seems that the problem its related to:


                - "BOM files"... i use MAC, and "Editra" to edit config.php file. I dont know why, but that seems to be the problem

                Now i change the codification of the file config.php to ANSI and ask my users to login... i hope this solves mi problem
