Dealing with INVALID TOKEN Screens

Postby masterchief » Wed Jan 09, 2008 10:59 pm

Due to a recent security fix, some problems may be introduced with existing 1.5 sites.  The know issues are as follows:

Invalid Token page displays when trying to login

Older 1.5 templates, 1.0 templates working in legacy mode, or those using customer login code or using layout overrides will experience this problem.

The login must include a for token.  Previously this was done with this code:

Code: Select all

<input type="hidden" name="<?php echo JUtility::getToken(); ?>" value="1" />

You must change this to:

Code: Select all

<?php echo JHTML::_( 'form.token' ); ?>
