  • Forum login bug

    I see this every time I login, starting yesterday:

    vBulletin Message
    Invalid Redirect URL (http://www.phoronix.com/forums/)
    Though from there I can just continue normally. Rather ugly though to see it daily, since this forum doesn't remember my login ever since the update to v4 (yes cookies are saved, and yes I reported this in the forum update thread)


    PS: Not liking the limited width change.

    Limited width? It expands across 3840 pixels here.

      The width change is inconsistent across the forum, some elements have it, some don't (for example, the reply window doesn't). AFAICS, this change was made at the same time as the one that caused the login error above.

          Oh, haha didn't occur to me to check for that. IMHO bad policy to show ads to logged-in members instead of just guests, but not my call.

          Anyway, I'm still getting the login bug. Anyone else?

            Ya something definitely went funky with the layout. Even though I have premium account the layout went completely out of whack when viewing in a iPad. The other day it was perfectly fine.

              Is it now rendering correctly for you on iPad? In the past day it magically fixed itself on the iPhone at least...

                Ya on the iPhone it is ok now. Will check on the iPad when I get home from work today.

                  Still looks a bit "wonky" on the ipad. It doesn't go across the whole screen unless you are replying. (Actually same white space appears on the iphone as well it looks like.)

                        Interesting, just tried out opera for the ipad and it displays it better (still with a huge white bar on the left like my first screenshot). The only think is in opera however you cannot reply to posts because it tries to use the advance editor instead of the simple editor.

                          OK it looks like if you use the simple editor in Opera it works fine other then the white bar on the side when viewing the thread.

                            For what it's worth, I still see the vbulletin error message on login.

                              Michael,

                              I've found the problem on my forum, it was related to the "Always use Forum URL as Base Path" option. This was enabled, which meant that when people accessed the forum without the www. they would get a redirect error when logging in, but with the www. was fine. Now the option is disabled, both URLs seem to be working OK again. This problem did only show up with the very latest round of updates though so the behaviour of this option seems to have changed recently.
                              Indeed, the message mentions www., while the redirect takes to phoronix.com/ without the www.
