session expires first login immediately - I think- FIXED

I have recently setup the 2.2.3 install of XOOPS with moduled xhelp, smart faq, cbb, extended profiles and polls.Whenever I connect for the first time as any user (admin or general user) it continues the login process as if everything is OK - then asks me to login again (this generally causes a problem as the login page is not accessable unless I know the user.php url (I don't want users to type in that manually, but rather click a login button and only need to login once) has anyone had this problem before - do I need a re-install - could something have been corrupted? any help is appreciated. Thanks

Re: Notifications Disabled?

I believe that I had a similar problem and am not sure if it is fixed yet - To work around this at the moment go and update the database tables with the correct notify_mode and notification_method.

Table is : xoops_user_profile
Fields to check :
Notify_method = 2 (email) 1 (PM)
Notify_mode = 0

I think the xoops_user_profile_field table defines the correct fields to be 100% certain - you could maybe insert the default values in here to make it happen for new users - But that is up to you :)


If there is another way - please can someone else answer it - Thanks

Where can I find information relating to LDAP as this may be the answer I need to look at for accomplishing the task ?

Going Direct to content - don't see login screens!

Somewhere I read that XOOPS will allow the user to be directed to their content without the need of going through the login screens. i.e. the user and pass handle is passed in with another application or url.

The reason why I am interested is that I would like to synchronise the XOOPS database with several external database user tables (create a site identifier and username automatically when user is created on an external database. ) in the external application the user has already authenticated and then links to a module in the XOOPS system (they should not need to re-enter their user/login to get connected).

If someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it .

The BIG picture is that I have an application(web based) and it would be neat "if" the user had a problem that they may click a link on that application that will take them directly into XOOPS to review a FAQ, Raise a helpdesk ticket, or make comments on a forum, etc without having to authenticate every time they connect manually. (behind the scenes is what I am expecting or hoping)

Just a heads up on progress so far.
I have managed to have installed and running with 2.2.3RC2 the cbb 2.2 and xhelp .75 and all seems to be pretty stable. I am able to perform the general functions, block positions, group moves, etc without much problem. I have a couple of testers who have setup accounts and they have managed to use PM's , email notifications, etc all successfully. The permissions access appears to be working great, even when adding additional profile groups - which rocks :)

There are a couple of minor annoyances in CBB when creating forums - but other than that(I will raise in their forum) all looks great

I have found another issue : I made a user inactive and then tried loggin into the system - Correctly the message the user received was that the account was inactive and it prevented them from connecting in. The Problem:
I was running another module (xhelp) which uses the profile of the user to determine notifications and such. I used the xhelp module to perform a task that would initiate a notification task and the Inactive user was dispatched an email about a task that was being performed. Would the logic be that notifications would still be dispatched if a user was made inactive or disabled? I would hope that in the circumstance that the notifications should be suspended or something similar. I have not raised this as a BUG yet as I cannot track down exactly where the responsibility lies, But I would assume as the notifications still appear active for the inactive user that the problem should be addressed in the profile area - (which comes to the core I assume ) Let me know if you wish me to make it a bug in the sf arena. Thanks

Here are the results I have generated from my initial testing:
mysql Ver 12.22 Distrib 4.0.18
PHP 4.3.11

Pass - User creation admin (ext. profile module)
Pass - User deletion admin (ext. profile module)
Pass - Adding user fields (ext. profile module)
FAIL editing aspects on fields does not always work in respect of activate/deactivate (radio buttons)

Pass - Removing user fields (ext. profile module)
Pass - Searching for users by values of added fields (ext. profile module)
Pass - Send PM (PM module)
Pass - Receive PM (PM module)
Pass - Register user (ext. profile module)
INCONSISTANT Slight difference in end result to using ext.profile method ("blank.gif")

Pass - Send activation email (ext. profile module)
Pass - Activate user from activation email (ext. profile module)
Pass - Add user to group in user edit (ext. profile module)
Pass - Remove user from group in user edit (ext. profile module)

INCOMPLETE- Delete user account frontside (ext. profile module)
I am not sure where this is - can someone please explain or give a hint where to find.

Pass- Add/Edit blocks individually (System -> blocks -> add/edit)
INCONSISTANT User menu does not change whichever location you set it to - appears to always stay left

PENDING - Edit block visibility and positioning in mass (System -> blocks)

I will now start testing with a couple of additional Modules (start with xhelp) and the forums (any suggestion which you would like tested with this release?) I was thinking CBB2.2 ?

I created a user using the email method where the user registers themselves by entering base information and wait for an email to activate. This works fine ... these is a difference between this method and using the ext. profiles method. the ext. profiles does not by default add the "blank.gif" image as the default avatar whereas the self registration does. I do not have any forums loaded yet, but will this form a reference to a non-existant image or will it ignore it completely. I am just thinking about concistancy here :)

My username on sourceforge is rlinfoot - sorry about the confusion - just never changed it after my initial registration - last updated by mithyt2.

Cool - thanks for getting back to me on this - if there are other specific items you need tested please let me know as I wish to help with progressing the application.
