  How to fix Login problem with FireFox

* EleWeb Support List


thanks for the replies sofar. I found out two things:

1. after changing a bit of code in de login.pas normal users
can logon/logoff normally in Firefox. Replace the line of code
with the .... javascript:history.back(-1) .... argument in it
by the refresh code that is used in the logout.pas file.

The complete new line is:

Writeln('META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=../index.htm">';

Don't forget to compile the script again ;)

2. Somehow the above mentioned code doesn't work for the 1st
user (sysop...) in the user database. I changed some typicall
sysop settings in the limits configuration, like infinite time,
but that doesnt help .... Then I decided to downgrade the
sysop level to the same level as the working 'normal user
account', ie level 10. That didn't help either.

Nevertheless, the above mentioned change helps for normal users.

Some other things:

I found out that an eleweb login is counted twice, thats (not) good
for the statistics ;)

The errors.log of xiopen showed a lot of errors of images that
couldn't be found. Somehow I don't have a theme directory.

I replaced all the lines that were pointing to

/cgi-bin/themes/zoneblue/images/.gif to ../images/.gif
