pop up asking for log in information
« on: January 14, 2017, 11:16:03 pm »
    I was just looking around on the forum and got a pop up from MS edge. I clicked on more stats under forum stats section towards the bottom of the main page. but instead got a pop up. It says the forum is asking for user name and password. It even warns that it is unsecured. Being the dumb azz that I am, I still tried to log in multiple times. But the forum still rejects my log in and denies access to forum stats.
   I don't remember having to log in twice in the past, and not be granted access either way. Is this something fairly new? Again I am logged in and yes was when I tried to click on this. I have clicked on it in the past and never had a problem before. I understand that there have been many changes the last few years, was this one of them and I am just showing my ignorance?   :))

Just got the same pop-up.  Didn't try to log in. It's a new thing?

I don't experience this using Google Chrome. All's good with this so maybe a browser thing ...

 :-[

its fixed now.

the problem was the "pretty urls" plugin had a bit of a namespace collision.  it rewrote the stats link http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php?action=stats to http://forum.cog-online.org/stats
which was already in use by the web server statistics package webalizer.

Thanks Mike.

Cap'n probably wanted to check he still holds the most posts stats  :D

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

hows this "mike fix" 

I'm going to start closing trouble tickets at work with that  :D


ok, so in english, the plugin that i added to make the urls a lot more meaningful tried to use the name "stats", but that was already in use by something else on the server. so rather than getting the page they were looking for they were inadvertently trying to go to something else that they don't have access to.

 That's exactly what I was curious about. I figured Jay probably passed me by now. But Rev actually passed Jay, but not me yet. But it won't take long since I don't post much anymore. I think that's the last of the proof of to much time on the forum stats.  :rotflmao:
