just converted from an old modded phpBB2 to a fresh unmodded phpBB 3.0.5 because my Hoster upgraded to php5.3, that worked fine.
The only very critical problem (really most annoying bug you can imagine):
Autologin does not work
- it did work flawlessly with the old phpBB2 since 4 years so it's for sure NOT a Client Computer Problem.
Cookie (and Server) settings are correct like described here:
http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/fixing- ... -settings/
I also searched this and several other phpBB support Forums but found NO Solution.
I guess the root of these Problems is this:
phpBB2 did NOT require SESSION IDs attached to the url, the new phpBB3 appends it like:
As soon as the session ID is removed from the URL - I am logged out.
Yes sure Cookies are accepted by my Browser and I manually checked that they are there.
phpbb.com/community does not require this.
Guess what? Yes! Auto login works fine here in this forum.
So how can I turn that Session ID mess off?
Also not good for bots and very very user unfriendly (just think of posting LINKs to a specific thread somehwere in the Forum by copy&paste
There is a BUG in the language pack install - it should walk over alls subfolders(!) in the Folder /language but starts with the file(!!!) /language/index.htm. Then of course it fails as it checks an URL like /forum/language/index.htm/iso.txt
Deleting index.htm File in this Folder solved that problem but I think that should be fixed.
