Hi Jason

Just bought the Bridge and the Extender so I think everything is up to date.

I have site where all I am trying to do (for now) is build a login .. to a specific page.

The wizard has built the table, the pages I defined and such. I look at the Access Pages Manager and the page access rule is when someone is logged on ..

In the registration form I enter a valid username and password and check the database and it is there.

I go to my login page and type the same username and password and voila it says logged in. And keeps me on the login page. When I try to just type in the URL for the one page I want to access I get a Mozilla warning about an infinite loop and it stops the process. Lots of things going on here.

Any direction or thoughts on where to go next? Session being saved properly? I have no idea (it is too simple to be this much work right?)

Thanks.

send me a copy of the page you are trying to protect and a copy of the page it is redirecting to if not logged in. I have a felling they are both using the same rule

Pages

Sorry .. the URL's or the code or screenshots/ Don't mean to sound dumb .. but what would you need?

Any chance of taking the request for more info off the grid as perhaps this isn't mine but a client site?

Update:
- I thought this might be a sessions pathway issue and called the hosting company .. no problems (tested on competitor software and worked)
- checked out both SecurityAssist videos on YouTube and confirmed the steps I have taken
- built another login page and set up on new site, deleted database and such

No change.

I log into the page and it stays right there.

Not sure what to do but beating my head against the desk is starting to hurt.

Help!

the page you sent is not restricted at all, but from the screen shot, i think you are using the wrong access rule.


You are using the logged into group access rule, but your login page seams to log into the pcms2_users table. you should be using the logged into pcms2_users rule instead.

Ok ..

Deleted everything and started again (table, files .. all new)

Defined the security against the user table and the group.

I don't understand why my login page has to be restricted (I mean should this be the one page that isn't?) .. but I tried both with and without .. no difference.

Attached are more screenshots and the two pages following the changes I made.

Do I need to go through authenticate user?

Thanks.
