Account Switch (Widget) Issue Empty Account Switch (Widget) Issue

Post by Eyeball April 21st 2019, 9:31 am

Good Evening, and Happy Easter!

I have an issue with the Account Switcher widget that was found https://help.forumotion.com/t118184-switch-accounts-widget?highlight=Switch+Characters though the widget shows up and it allows me to enter my information, it simply loops without activating any switch to the current account and remains on the account that was previous logged into.

When entering the account information of the account I am attempting to switch to, it redirects me to my forum main page.

Any suggestions on how this might be fixed?

Current widget code:
Code:
<form name="form_login" method="post" action="/login" style="display:inline">
   <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tbody></tbody>
      <tr style="">
         <td>
            Username:
         </td>
         <td>
            <input style="width: 100px;" value="" onfocus="this.value=''" name="username" size="10" class="forminput" type="text" />
         </td>
      </tr><tbody></tbody>
      <tr style="">
         <td>
            Password:
         </td>
         <td><input style="width: 100px;" value="" onfocus="this.value=''" name="password" size="10" class="forminput" type="password" />
         </td>
      </tr><tbody></tbody>
   </table><input value="Switch User" name="login" class="forminput" type="submit" /> <br /><br />
</form>

Hello and happy Easter to you also.

Can i ask was this only installed today or was this some thing that was working before and has just stopped working?

I am asking this as we have found that some codes are no longer working and need to be updated by the member that made them.

As the Widget was not made by Forumotion it is not anything we give full support for but one of us may have  the skills to rework the code or at least try.

@APE
This was only just installed the night before, we have not had it on the forum previously.
Perhaps this is one of those codes that do not work with the forum as you have mentioned.
Would you have any particular members in mind that could possibly rework such a code?

Is your forum version ModernBB?  That code was for an Invision forum.

Not sure if I can answer here, but to save some time:
Forum version doesn't matter here. <:
This code still sends a POST request, but nowadays you need to send the data not in the request body, but as a query. Also, you should logout before.

https://help.forumotion.com/t137292-log-in-account-switch-widget#927262
Here is a working code of such a widget. It sends first a logout request and then the correct login request. Users won't really notice this though (since it happens in the background).

The one who could maybe help you is @Thecrow but i know he is really busy but maybe if he logs on then he could take a look.

Sadly I don't know much about the codes side of things so i can't really help.
