View Full Version : Still a Firefox problem...
09-17-2006, 11:02 PM
When I'm using Mozilla Firefox, I can never be logged in at the gallery. Even if I'm already logged in on the main page, or try to log in on the Gallery page, I'm always still a "guest". So, if I ever want to comment on anything, I have to open IE then come back to Wyrd and re-log-in and hope I remember my password. I know it's not that big a deal, just one of those little annoyances.
Do any other Firefox users out there experience this?

It seems to be hit or miss. I don't have that problem, even in a guest account I've created to check it out (to make certain it isn't an admin thing) and some others don't either like Mosch if I recall correctly. Then of course, there are ya'll that do.
No clue why. I've looked on support boards and no one has a clue either (and are clueless as to why it would be like that). Till then, I'll keep looking into it.

The problem that I found was that I am normally at http://wyrd-games.net, but when I go to the gallery it switches to http://www.wyrd.games.net. If I trim off the "www.", then I am shown as logged-in.
I hope that helps someone.

Hrmmm ... that just might. I'll look into it later this week when I'm able. Thanks for pointing this out.

Alrighty, I just changed the template (turned out I could do it quicker than I was anticipating) so that it no longer is prefexed with www .... let me know if this works. If so, I suggest giving Thryth a load of reputation points for pointing out the problem so off handidly.

Yay! It works now! Points for Thryth!!

Yipee! Points! :D (still only one dot, though :( )
BTW, I don't know the workings of the website, but a better solution would probably be to write the cookie to the "wyrd-games.net" domain not the one that the user is viewing (i.e., users browsing through wyrd-games.net and www.wyrd-games.net (http://www.wyrd-games.net) should both have their cookies read/written from/to wyrd-games.net). That would avoid the problem of people browsing both domains.
