I did some testings (on 3 different locations).

with SEF, without SEF, IE6, IE7, FF2, FF3, different computers, cleaning cookies...

conclusion:
this session issue occurs on CB1.2 with SEF (even Joomla's SEF).
no matter the computer, domain, subdomain, browser, OS, IP, any many other variables.

without SEF the session problem does not occur.


this was last tested with all new CB1.2 RC4 component & module.
(on both a fresh installation & an upgrade from a previous RC)


Joomla version?

Thanks for this interesting report, but as it doesn't affect all my test installations, and happens seldomly with users (the forum isn't flooded with reports) I need some more info to be able to reproduce and fix:

Which joomla version ?

If joomla 1.5, what joomla session storage settings ?

Also what PHP version ?

what's the exact domain (live_site) (you can replace main part by 'example' ?

is there a subfolder ?

are the CB tools --> CB database + CB fields checks passing correctly ?

How to reproduce it ?

If it's dependant of your host, would it be possible to have a test-account with the bug active ?

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation in squashing that one for the shortly upcoming CB 1.2 Stable. :)

Hi mtk,

Thanks for the PM. :)

I could go and experiment the problem on your test sub-site as follows:

1. registered and registration worked fine: got message:
"You can now login."
(no session/cookies issues so far)

2. login with the just registered username/password
- login was successful, login module showed me logged-in.
- but the "welcome page of that first login showed the sessions/cookies not enabled message.

3. logged-out
- ok went to home-page

4. logged-in again
- ok no messages, stayed on homepage, all right

Can you please confirm my detailed description and finding above ?

Please also confim that this can happen only on sites without email confirmation and users approvals and without first-login welcome page :)

Hi elaperriere,
Your first post says issues were at registration ? was that on step 1 as above or also on step 2 ?

I'm not sure that your case is similar to the first post in the thread ;)

Please confirm when exactly you have that error: in step 1 or in step 2 ?

If different than above, please post or PM me site registration page url :)


Hi all in here,

Yup, it's a small bug on the first login after getting the confirmation message upon registration.

It's purely "esthetics" bug, although not a nice one.

Nothing to do with the sometimes problematic sessions issues on misconfigured sites that CB 1.1 had.

It's also easily worked around with a "first login welcome page" that you can set in CB configuration -> registration tab in backend.

Problem is that CB needs to detect better that you were at the registration confirmation page in addition of the email-confirmation page, and with SEF that is not always easy.

I'm adding this issue to the known issues list, and will make an entry as soon as both of you have confirmed the above.

yes, confirmed.
yes, only on first login.
yes, only when SEF is ON (any kind, even basic Joomla's SEF).

I hope you're not aiming for that as a solution...
