Im sorry im not as programmer so i dont understand all the code stuff, to be honest thats why i installed joomla in the first palce so i dont have to do any coding.

Im having the 404 error everytime i log in and i want to fix it before the site goes live or i will have to get rid of CB Builder which would be a shame.

Ive tried every suggestion here and nothing works!

I really need something fixing soon or i'll have to uninstall CB Builder - its kind of a crucial proiblem that really should have been fixed before release surely!

my problem is that it works sometimes when I log in and most of the the time, it gives me error 404. it is not stable. But even if I get error 404, if clicked backwards, and to other pages, I am logged in.

In Firefox, it returns a blank page.

You will get this problem every time someone login from a page other than the home page., If you go straignt to the home page (ie not returning from elsewhere in the site) then it will work otherwise you get the 404 error.

Do the change to the code to mod_cblogin.php mentioned by twhiting9275 and then
go to statement at about line 520 that looks like

[code:1] echo '<input type="hidden" name="return" value="' . htmlspecialchars($login) . '" />'."\n";

and replace it with

[code:1] echo '<input type="hidden" name="return" value="' . $login . '" />'."\n"; [/code:1]

that is remove the htmlspecialchars call.

The previous email of mine did not come out correct as I assumed that it would be correctly escpaed by the forum code. (obviously a bug there too)

[code:1]The oringinal code as it stood replaced
the & with & three times so an original url like


ends up like

mysite.com/index.php?option=com_content& amp;amp;amp;view=section& amp;amp;amp;id=3& amp;amp;amp;Itemid=41

The code statement does not represent what I want to say so had to insert spaces where they would not actually be.


try the changes and see how it works.
