Admin not logging in....

confused
Ok, I checked the FAQ, and it seemed to outline my problem exactly. I put in my login info for the admin, and it logs it in, but it doesn't... log...me...in..

http://www.geeklog.net/faqman/index.php?op=view&t=26 That's it anyway. I tried all those solutions, and none of them worked.

I set the cookies to time out pretty quickly, in efforts to log the admin out, and try again. Everytime I try again though, I get the same result. It all worked last night when I finally got geeklog installed. I don't see why it would all of a sudden start doing this, nothing has been changed. I tried it on firefox and MSIE, my friend did the same on his computer with the same result.

Any clue?
Thanks,
Jay

Me again, sorry for the double post but I'm an anonymous user so I couldn't edit. Anyway, I got that problem squared away...well, it kinda just stopped happening for whatever reason, but I ended up reinstalling geek log again anyway.

Now I have a new issue. It's nothing major, but it's odd and I might as well tell you about it. I have 2 themes in my layout folder. One is the default "professional" theme, and the other is called DarcU, it's a theme I'm working on. I have my config file set to use professional as the default theme, and it does, as long as I also set it to not allow user themes in the config.php. If I do allow user themes, then when you're not logged in the default theme will be the darcU theme. I had to rename the folder so it would stop using the theme. After you rename the folder, you refresh once, get an error, refresh again and it's using the professional theme. I've tried this on multiple browsers, same result. Wondering if this is a known bug, or what?

Thanks,
Jay

Sounds like you changed the theme in your preferences ('My Account'Wink. See How do I change the default theme? for how Geeklog selects which theme to use.

It's not using my default theme (professional) when I'm log out (anonymous). When I log in it goes straight to my default theme, but anonymous visitors see the DarcU theme for some reason.

It's setting a cookie so that you still see the theme you selected even when you're logged out. See the FAQ entry I already pointed you to ...

bye, Dirk
