Frontend login failure

Post by valw » Wed Jul 06, 2022 9:13 pm

I can login from the backend - no problem. (I don't know how to log out a user from the backend.)
Frontend presents the login form, I can complete it, but when I select login, the page is just reloaded.

I have the login menu item on the home menu, using the protostar template. The menu item is from the pull-down menu from the user menu type.

One user is logged in, and can't log-out. Selecting logout just reloads the page and keeps the user logged in. I created a logout menu item, using the protostar template. Interesting thing, this newly created logout menu can not be seen on the home page. But it can be seen on other pages navigated to from the home page. When I select the logout menu item, I get redirected the way I should, but I'm not logged out.

Thank you for any consideration.

I can answer that question. See viewtopic.php?t=946527#p3459152 or viewtopic.php?t=991229#p3649913 :)
