double login, why?

Post by mad72 »

Hello everybody!
I installed a new board:
http://www.viaggierelax.it/forum/
and I have a couple of problems:

1) double login
when a user logs he appears in the bottom but is not really logged: if he/she wants to read or write he must log again

2) italian files
I added the it files but, even if set as default lang in the admin panel, it still worked in english. I overwrote the files in the eng folder so it's ok now but I don't think it's the best solution.

Thank you for your kind help
bye, Marco

PS: i tried to search here but the search function is not working

the language has to be set in the admin control panel in the board config, and users also have to set their desired language in their profiles :)

As for the double login
Download Auto Cookies MOD

then, unzip it to your computer,


then upload the included install folder, to your phpbb folder on the server.,

then , in your browser, go to:
yourdomain.com/yourphpbbb/install/cookie.php

then click the button to accept the settings it finds.

then delete the install folder.

Then you and all your members MUST do the cookie dance:

step 1. log out
step 2. clear your browser cookie
step 3. clear your browser cache/temporary internet files
step 4. close your browser
step 5. go back and test


done.

Cookies are ok now: THANK YOU!

The lang was working in users' profiles but I wanted it to be ok in the main board... beacuse not all italians can speak fluent english.

Bye, thank you again!
Marco
