  • IE Is Driving Me Crazy!

    Hi there!

    I posted this on vbulletin.org as well but so far no results. Hope you guys can help me

    I am having a little problem with my website at the moment. So here is the deal. I created more templates and pages by using the Gary King's script http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...n+powered+page.
    Now on my site when you are in firefox it works fine, you can log in and then view all the separate pages and it keeps your profile there and when you log out and start jumping to pages, it shows that you are logged out.

    Now when we come to IE7 its not the same case, usually I can log in normally then when I try to go to another page it gives me the log in screen again in my user panel, to fix this you either have to refresh or hit the link again, which I must say is not an option for my users haha. In addition when I log out it does the same thing, sometimes you go to another page and it will show you as logged in still... its confusing me. I mean I have a general understanding of how the process works but I'm no code expert, so any help you can give me will REALLY help.

    Below I'm adding a user name and a password that any of you guys can log into to just see what I mean.

    So in summary go to IE and log into this account and visit the pages... you will see what I mean.

    Thanks guys!

      URL?

      The most common problem is being inconsistent with the www. prefix in your URL.

      If you are at www.site.com, and you point the link to http://site.com then it uses a different cookie, forcing you to log in again. If this is the problem, don't prefix your links at all, or, use the full $vboptions[bburl]/ prefix.

      Another cause, for the cookie-disabled users, is not adding $session[sessionurl_q] to the end of your links pointing to that file. It'll drop their session.
