Solved Can't login to Administration Panel (re-login). Can't access CSS codes

Post by SallyCafe on July 21st 2015, 4:04 am

Hi everyone. First thanks for this awesome forum and for your help.

My problem
: I'm the admin of a forum and I suddenly can't login to my Control Panel (Administration Panel).

My forum: http://****.forumotion.com

The reason
: Not sure, but as far as I can tell, it's probably the last code added to my CSS. I got this code from THIS forum (http://help.forumotion.com/t122580-gallery-details#816158), and it was supposed to deal with a specific feature in the Gallery. Anyway it reads like this:

Code:
fieldset {
border-width: 0;
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 1.1em;
display: none;
}

This code, I later discovered, caused several problems not only this one. When I logged in to delete it finally, I could log in (to the forum) as usual. My Administration Panel is set as to confirm my password again, but now instead of giving me the password field to type my password in as usual, I get "To administer the board you must re-authenticate yourself" and "You are not logged in." I really don't know, but this code above seems to have disabled all "fields." Please help as soon as possible, and thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

Hi Very Happy

Have you tried logging in this fashion: http://lecafe.forumotion.com/login

If you did, and still have the problem, I highly suggest you open F12 in your keyboard and search for the CSS that deteriorates your logging in and delete it. If you can't find it, add this in your CSS in console:

Code:
fieldset {
display: block;
}

You can change block to anything because I saw that you made it none.

Regards,
Pizza Boi

font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 1.1em;
display: none;
}
If you add display: none, it will remove the element.

Exactly. I can log in to the forum, but I cannot log in to the Administration Panel. Why? Because (I guess) of that code in the CSS (which now I cannot access). I got a few screenshots to explain this dilemma.

First thank you Pizza Boi for your help and posts. Here how it looks when I use http://****.forumotion.com/login




But I don't need this really, because fortunately I have a login widget that I can login through. However, all fields inside seem to be disabled. To access my Panel I have to re-enter my password, but this is what I get:




Even in the Gallery, just for example, when I click "upload" to add a new pic, this is what I get:




Empty.. all empty.. Even when I delete a pic, this is how it looks:





There are no Yes or No buttons. Entire areas or fields or functions (?) have been disabled.

*****************

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the F12 tool/function. Do you mean I can access my CSS this way and even modify it? Wow! I really hope so. That will be great. All I want is to reach my CSS (or perhaps someone in the Management here can force her/his way in, to just delete that code above mentioned). I really don't know how to solve this. Thanks again Pizza Boi for your help and hopefully this F12 can do it. If I can really access my CSS this way, just let me know please where to go exactly. Thanks in advance everyone.

Hi Very Happy

Check what I did in the lower right where I wrote field set: http://prntscr.com/7v4hrm

It brought back the fields Smile. For either Chrome or Firefox, just click on the + button and change the id to fieldset and apply the CSS settings.

Pizza Boi, you're the man! Thank you so much for your time and support. The problem's solved. I'm not sure how, but I added your earlier code, while still trying to figure out this "F12" discovery, almost exactly at the same time you were adding this code in the screen shot. So either way the credit definitely goes to you, thanks a million. (I just didn't believe, and still don't, we can modify the CSS or codes of a forum or site like this. Doesn't this simply go against all security measures? Anyway, not my specialization so forgive my curiosity).

SLGray: Thanks for your time and patience guys. Believe me we never talk but we're deeply impressed by how both supportive and professional you all are on this forum. Could you guys please check that code or that post mentioned and just add a warning or something (http://help.forumotion.com/t122580-gallery-details#816158). Almost half of a forum's functions get disabled because of this one code. Anyway, thanks again; you may please lock this thread. (Even change the topic's title, again; it's better NOT to show in the search engines in my humble opinion).

Hi Very Happy

Don't worry about it, it's your browser's console getting affected only and it won't trigger forum security in anyway Smile . There's still a lot of things you have to do to hack...

The pizza's here. That'd be $2.99 Wink ~
