Login/Logout

Post by ps0303 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 12:42 pm

We are running 2.5.28. Recently started having issues with our site and the company we were paying to manage it has disappeared and no longer responding to email requests.

Recently we spotted an issue with the login/logout functionality. When a user logs into he site, the menu doesn't change to "logout." Also, when they are logged in and they click what is spotted to be the logout option, shows as login, their name shows up twice in what is supposed to be the logout box. Plus that box should be labeled "Logout" but reads "Login" instead.

When I look in modules, I see that I do have a Login and a Logout. Both use the Loginform. I suspect that is because there is no logoutform or that form has been deleted or something.

Any idea why this is happening??

Thanks!

Perhaps your host have updated the version of php.

Joomla 2.5 has not been supported since December 2014 and does not run on php higher than 5.6
I will recommend upgrading the site to the current version 3.9.8. That will require a new template and that all extension used are compatible with 3.9

Please post the output of the Forum Post Assistant. Link is in the pink frame above.

Yes we are aware that we are on an unsupported version. However, our website builder/support is no where to be found so we are running on limited user knowledge. I thought I might find some helpful answers here.

We can not upgrade at all. In fact we are looking to move away from Joomla but until we can find another builder for our site, we have to limp along on this one for our users.

You have just received the most useful answer from @Per Yngve Berg.

If this behaviour of the website is new and it just started, talk to your host because they may have upgraded PHP without telling you and, if you are lucky, they may still be able to change it back to an older version.

Otherwise you could create a topic to the Professional Development Services forum at viewforum.php?f=177 and wait for Joomla specialists to contact you.
