Problem with Remember me in CB login

11 years 7 months ago #61584 by p999
I did find a solutions for both the '404' problem and 'remember me'. The latter Beat provided an answer in this thread. See this thread for the 404 solution:,com_joomlaboard/Itemid,38/func,view/id,46317/catid,43/limit,6/limitstart,6/

"modules/mod_cblogin/mod_cb_login.php" at line #512

You should change this:
name="return" value="' . htmlspecialchars( $login ) . '"

name="return" value="' . $login . '"

The only issue I have concerns "special", or “registered” items. On the first visit to the site I have to refresh the page before they appear.

The only solution I have found to the Remember Me Bug is to select the setup option for CB_Login for "Remember Me" to "Hide/Selected". In my experience this bug only occurs in IE7, not Firefox. I didn't test in IE6 so I don't know if this is related to some update to IE7 or what. I am hoping that this bug is addressed in 1.2 but I don't see anything about it in the Pre-Release.

applied fixes mentioned here.
"Remember me" now seems to write a cookie.
closing the browser, reOpening, and reconnecting to the webpage simply produces a blank page.
Hitting "reload" makes the page display

Nobody has a fix for this??

I think I've solved the problem (on my site anyway). To recap the problem: If the user chose "Remember Me" and logged in then closed their browser and came back at a later time, the user would appear to be logged out. BUT if they refreshed the page they magically are logged in again.

The solution:
1. Make sure mod_cblogin is installed correctly.
2. Make sure mod_login (the one supplied with Joomla is disabled).
3. Insert the following code at the top of your templates index.php file or AFTER the global declarations in the mod_cblogin.php file.

$user =& JFactory::getUser(); //Grab the Joomla 1.5.x user details object
if ((!$my->id)&&($user->id)){ //If the legacy array is not populated but user is still logged in according to Joomla 1.5.x,
foreach ($user as $key => $value) { //loop through 1.5.x user object
$my->$key=$value; //and copy 1.5.x object value to same key in 1.0.x object.


The issue seems to be that the $my object is not being populated until the page is refreshed. What the code above does is checks that (a) the user is stilled logged in according to the newer 1.5.x $user object and (b) the legacy 1.0.x $my object is empty. It then copies the $user values into the $my values as both objects contain the same keys. Hope this works. I'm sure someone will suggest a cleaner fix.

I have this problem also and I think it is related to Fire Fox not remembering me at all.

Is this Fire Fox problem fixed or being discussed elsewhere? I really need a fix to this.
