Error Oops - Sorry, you are not authorized to view this page

Postby bins_uk » Wed Apr 18, 2018 8:26 pm

I am pulling my hair out with this!

When I log in I get 'Error Oops - Sorry, you are not authorized to view this page.'

I have switched off all modules and menu options but cannot trace the cause. I have also looked at trash & cache!

Most thing shown on the page when logged in are restricted to registered users.

If I move away from the home page and go back, the error disappears.

I am checking if Community Builder could be the issue, but think unlikely.

I am trying to find a way to list everything that should be shown on a page, but can't see how to do this in J!

Searching the forums shows this issue appearing a few time, but does not offer a solution for me!

Anyone with thoughts?

I think I found the issue!

If I switch off SEF, the error goes!

How is the Login Redirection option configured for the menu entry for the login form? Is it Default or a particular menu item or a URL? Does the site use the new routing option?

Is the Home page a normal article?

More information maybe required. Could you please post the output from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions from viewtopic.php?f=714&t=793531.

Hi Tovio,

I am using the CB login module and it does not redirect anywhere.

No article on home page.

You have got me thinking. I am using Gantry and Hydrogen template. I replaced the home page menu option last week, about the time this error appeared! I will investigate further.
