Solved Switch Accounts issues

Post by RinRose7 January 13th 2021, 9:29 pm

So, a friend recently showed me a switch Accounts code to use. Which is fine and dandy but it doesn't appear to work. Of course I'm using the latest version (AwesomeBB) which I know/from what I can tell is still in beta mode but, if there's any chance to get a switch account coding for AwesomeBB that would be helpful. And my friend and I tried several different ones too but none seemed to work.

Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function switch_accounts() {
        jQuery.get(document.getElementById('logout').href, function() {
        jQuery.post('/login', 'login=1&username='+document.getElementById('switch_uname').value+'&password='+document.getElementById('switch_pass').value, function () {
        window.location.reload();
        });
        });
        }
        </script>
        Switch user:<hr />
        <input id="switch_uname" type="text" /><br />
        <input id="switch_pass" type="password" /><br />
        <input type="button" value="Switch user" onclick="switch_accounts();" />

This was one of the many we tried. It seems to work on Phpbb but it doesn't seem to work on AwesomeBB. Another we've tried was for Invision only. One I found completely broke the site and didn't work.

Dear @RinRose7

the code is fine, the only problem is that in AwesomeBB the logout element does not have the ID #logout to which the code refers. You only need to update the code with the following:

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
var logout = $('#main-user-menu ul:last li a:last').attr('href');
        function switch_accounts() {
        jQuery.get(logout, function() {
        jQuery.post('/login', 'login=1&username='+document.getElementById('switch_uname').value+'&password='+document.getElementById('switch_pass').value, function () {
        window.location.reload();
        });
        });
        }
        </script>
        Switch user:<hr />
        <input id="switch_uname" type="text" /><br />
        <input id="switch_pass" type="password" /><br />
        <input type="button" value="Switch user" onclick="switch_accounts();" />

The code works for me, but it may not for you. In any case, could you share the resource where you found the code (a tutorial or something)?

Thanks in advance :rose:

Thanks for the coding! It's popping up but, the issue I am having is, it not letting me click the 'switch user' button. Do I need to change the &logout to #logout? if that is what you mean? Sorry for the late response I just woke up and tested the code you sent.

@RinRose7 try to replace the first part of the code with this:
Code:
$(function() {
var logout = $('#main-user-menu ul:last li a:last').attr('href');
        function switch_accounts() {
        jQuery.get(logout, function() {
        jQuery.post('/login', 'login=1&username='+document.getElementById('switch_uname').value+'&password='+document.getElementById('switch_pass').value, function () {
        window.location.reload();
        });
        });
        }
});

if it still doesn't work, I need to see it live and test it myself to understand the possible causes and problems occurring :rose:

I'm not very good at explaining it but, the button part for the "Switch Accounts" doesn't appear and even when I pressed the 'viewing' part for the code to show the login thing for switch accounts and click the button nothing happens. It's like a useless button that won't work. If you want I can even send a screen shot of how it looks on my screen with the code in and send a url of my own forum so you can try and click the switch user button.

I need to register on your website and test it personally - because of that I need to know where i will be able to find it :rose:

Dear @RinRose7

sorry for the late reply. Based on what I see from the screenshot you sent me - the code is not the same. You have
Code:
&#36
instead of
Code:
$

Please re-check the code you copy/paste, the one I shared with you was correct :rose:

About this specific issue I do not know how to relate, because it is ACP side - maybe it is a bug?
Even if it's weird because the character
Code:
$
is the most used in jquery and javascript codes, so it's strange.

edit: I tried, and it happens for me as well.. it may be a problem to report Embarassed
In the meantime you can:
  1. Add the script code in Module > HTML & Javascript > Javascript management
    Code:
    var logout = $('#main-user-menu ul:last li a:last').attr('href');
            function switch_accounts() {
            jQuery.get(logout, function() {
            jQuery.post('/login', 'login=1&username='+document.getElementById('switch_uname').value+'&password='+document.getElementById('switch_pass').value, function () {
            window.location.reload();
            });
            });
            }

  2. Add only the second part in the widget
    Code:
    Switch user:<hr />
            <input id="switch_uname" type="text" /><br />
            <input id="switch_pass" type="password" /><br />
            <input type="button" value="Switch user" onclick="switch_accounts();" />


But in any case @skouliki I think this is something that should be reported to the Pro Admins Neutral

Hello,


I tried that way
Working but cannot see clearly where to put username and password. Maybe just a css issue on my side
Works and switch is ok

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
                function switch_accounts() {
      jQuery('#main-user-menu li:last a').attr('id','logout');
                jQuery.get(document.getElementById('logout').href, function() {
                jQuery.post('/login', 'login=1&username='+document.getElementById('switch_uname').value+'&password='+document.getElementById('switch_pass').value, function () {
                window.location.reload();
                });
                });
                }
                </script>        Switch user:
<hr />
        <input id="switch_uname" type="text" /><br />        <input id="switch_pass" type="password" /><br />        <input type="button" value="Switch user" onclick="switch_accounts();" />

For the $ changed into &#36 its long known issue (same on the welcome message on index). Just change $ with jQuery and it's fine.
