Login works in IE but not Safari or Firefox

Login works in IE but not Safari or Firefox

I have created a login system. It works fine in Internet Explorer but when I try it in Safari (5.0.1) and Firefox (3.5.10) it either stays on the same page (but doesn't log you in) or it takes you to the forgotten password page - The redirect page if all the login checks fail. My website is www.extratimeonline.co.uk

log in is based on setting session variables. sessions are not browser dependent.

the only way for the browser to be able to effect login is if cookies are disabled in the browser.


try clearing the browsers cache, and making sure to enable cookies.

There is definitely a problem. I have cookies enables and I have cleared the cache - but still no luck. I have also tested it on other computers but I can't log in from those either. I have logged into this forum via Firefox and that worked. I have had a few clients saying that they can't log in either.

can you send a copy of your pages login page, the page it should redirect to on successful login and the WA_SecurityAssist/HelperGroupRules.php page.

Every page has a login. I have attached the index page and the forgotton password page - the page it redirects to on a failed login.

Sorry - here are the other pages you require. Index.php is the page it goes to on a successful redirect.

in some browsers, a form elements value will not be sent with the post if the form element does not have a value attribute.


In your login form:

<form action="" method="post" name="login" id="login">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>Member Login </strong>(<a href="password.php">forgotten password</a>)</td>
<td align="right">Username:
<input name="username" type="text" id="username" size="10">
Password:
<input name="password" type="password" id="password" size="10"></td>
<td width="50" align="right"><a href="password.php">
<input type="submit" name="loginbutton" id="loginbutton" value="Login" class="button">
</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>




the username and password form elements do not have value attributes, this could be causing the problem

change:

<input name="username" type="text" id="username" size="10">




and:

<input name="password" type="password" id="password" size="10">



to:

<input name="username" type="text" id="username" size="10" value="">




and:

<input name="password" type="password" id="password" size="10" value="">

Thank you - I found the problem in my code. For some reason I had a 'a href' around the button ;)
