Thanks for your quick reply pe7er
What Joomla version?
Joomla! 1.0.12 Stable [ Sunfire ] 25 December 2006 01:00 UTC
What browser do you use?
I have tried with Firefox 220.127.116.11 and IE 6.0
Could you empty the browser's cache & temporary internet files on your PC?
Could you test it with another browser (e.g. FireFox)?
Tried with firefox and explorer
Is Joomla's Cache ON or OFF?
Is the mos_config_livesite in your configuration.php identical as the address used in the URL? (both with or without the www. prefix)
It is the same as the address I am using, http://bhu.org.uk/cms
(the site is still pretty much as the default configuration)
I am pretty sure this has something to do with the forwarding of the login form data with SEO. HttpLiveHeaders gives the following:
POST /cms/ HTTP/1.1
HTTP/1.x 302 Moved Temporarily
Date: Mon, 08 Jan 2007 09:23:35 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) mod_jk/1.2.15 mod_accounting/0.5 PHP-CGI/0.1b
GET /cms/index.php HTTP/1.1
HTTP/1.x 200 OK
As far as I can see the browser is acting correctly, W3C says:If the 302 status code is received in response to a request using the POST method, the user agent must not automatically redirect the request unless it can be confirmed by the user, since this might change the conditions under which the request was issued.
(from http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.0/dr ... ml#Code302
I would guess that the login form should not use a modified URL for the "action", i.e. SEF URLs should not apply to the login form action, which should always show http://bhu.org.uk/index.php
even when SEO is enabled.
