phpBB banning users strangely

Post by Pseudonym »

Hi there,

I've noticed some strange behaviour by phpBB when I ban a user. Here's what happens:

- User is browsing the forums, and gets banned the mods.
- Once banned, User is logged out, but continues to browse the forums as a guest
- If the User then tries to post a message, he is asked to log in. (Just as any guest would be.)
- User enters the correct username and password, and the login page just reloads. There is no error message given - just the blank login form.

This loop continues until the User browses to another page. At this point, they can go back to the login page, enter their login details, and FINALLY they see a notice that they've been banned/suspended.

Now, I'm sure that's not how it's supposed to work! But I don't know what the correct behaviour is, and I don't know where to start looking for a problem.

I have a lot of mods installed, including some custom tweaks, and obviously I've stuffed something up. But I can't think of anything that should affect the login behaviour.

Any help or pointers would be most appreciated!

Thanks, Oyabun1. Really I just wanted to know if this was normal behaviour, and what files were involved in the banning/login/notification process that I could check.
