Hopefully this might be a useful summary of what is expected.

With the release of phpBB 3.2.6, performing a login now requires a "form token", and results in "the submitted form is invalid" when those form token fields don't exist. The primary login forms in the phpBB 3.2.6 proSilver style were updated to include these form tokens, but if you're using a non-proSilver style the login forms on your board may not attempt to include these form tokens in the login forms. Note this can happen even if your style is proSilver-based and inherits from proSilver, since your style may have overridden and replaced the templates that define the login forms. In addition to all that, there were also some login forms in phpBB 3.2.6 proSilver which mistakenly did not get updated, and those need to be fixed as well.

To fix the known login issues while keeping phpBB 3.2.6:
Thank you so much - you saved my live :D

I have updated to 3.2.6 RC.1 , but we have no style changes from 3.2.6 RC.1 to 3.2.6. So looks like where missing some changes then.


I'm using the "quick login" extension.
I needed to add add_form_key('login', '_LOGIN'); in listner.php
And {{ S_FORM_TOKEN_LOGIN }} in quick_login.html

So it's working now ;)
This got me on the right track, maybe it helps someone else too allthough I don't have a solution yet (apart from changing the link to the separate login page).

I am using the Metro templateset, which was recently updated (May 1). Metro features a "quick login popup thingy" on every page, however the form token is only rendered on the index (probably because that is the only place where the add_form_key() is added in the code of the pages itself. The template variable is there, but it just isn't rendered on other pages.
