can't "escape" user control panel

Post by Seibertron »

I successfully setup an installing of phpBB3 today on my Windows apache2triad/php5/mysql5 environment. Everything was working great until I edited my user account through the user control panel. Up until that point, I had been able to go between the ACP and the front end just fine. I had made a couple of test posts ... everything seemed perfect. However, after I made some changes to my avatar, signature and user settings in the user control panel, I attempted to go back to the forums and I ran into an interesting problem. No matter what link I click on now (whether it's the primary phpBB logo in the top left hand corner of the page), the links in the top right hand corner of the page (FAQ, Search, Members, User Control Panel) or the "Board Index" link in the bottom left hand corner of the page ... they all return me back to the main user control panel page at /ucp.php?i=profile&mode=reg_details (the proper url in my development environment on my laptop is: http://phpbb3/ucp.php?i=profile&mode=re ... 90e4513853). I can navigate back to the ACP without encountering problems. Any suggestions? I haven't even looked at the phpbb3 code yet. I did skim through some of the posts in this forum to see if anyone was having this issue as well.

DOH! I just figured out what was the problem.

That message should stand out significantly. I didn't even realize that error was on the screen because it's such a smaller font. No warning symbol, no red text, not bold, etc. I turned on the option in the admin control panel yesterday that requires the user to change their password.

While technically not a bug, that does seem like a design/presentation problem so report it to the bug tracker provided it hasn't already been reported....
