The first symptom I had from this problem was not being able to create a new account. It kept telling me that whatever name I put in there was taken. Upon further inspection I quickly noticed that the name kept getting changed to "Guest". The best I can figure is that in the theme I am using if you are not logged in the empty username space it says guest by default. Whenever I hit submit it is pulling data from the default "guest" information. I guess the best way for me to explain it is for you guys to have a look at me site up top left you will see a login box. Any ideas on how I can disable "guest" from showing there? Thanks

well if you look in your theme and open up your theme.php or header.html...(whatever you have) you can look for :

<input type="login" name="username" class="login"
value="Guest" onBlur="if(this.value=='') this.value='Guest';"
onFocus="if(this.value=='Guest') this.value='';" size="14"
maxlength="25" style="height: 14px; width: 74px;">

just take out guest or change to:

<input type="login" name="username" class="login"
value="" size="14"
maxlength="25" style="height: 14px; width: 74px;">

And backup before you touch anything.

I found this in the theme.html file


Code:
</tr>

</table>
<table width="100%"  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td class="login-bg" width="208"><table class="login-block">
<tr>
<td><?php  if ($username == "Guest") {
        echo "<form action=\"account.html\" method=\"post\"
style=\"margin:0\">\n"
        ."&nbsp;<img src=\"themes/$thename/images/username.gif\"
align=\"absbottom\">&nbsp;"
    ."<input type=\"login\" name=\"username\" class=\"login\"
value=\"Guest\"  onBlur=\"if(this.value=='') this.value='Guest';\"
onFocus=\"if(this.value=='Guest') this.value='';\" size=\"14\"
maxlength=\"25\" style=\"height: 14px; width: 74px;\">\n<br />"
    ."&nbsp;<img src=\"themes/$thename/images/password.gif\"
align=\"absbottom\">&nbsp;"
    ."<input type=\"password\" name=\"user_password\" class=\"login\"
value=\"*********\"  onBlur=\"if(this.value=='') this.value='*********';\"
onFocus=\"if(this.value=='*********') this.value='';\"size=\"14\"
maxlength=\"25\" style=\"height: 14px; width: 74px;\" size=\"16\">\n<br />"
    ."<input type=\"hidden\" name=\"url\" value=\"index.php\">\n"
    ."<input type=\"hidden\" name=\"t\" value=\"\">\n"
    ."<input type=\"hidden\" name=\"op\" value=\"login\">\n"
    ."&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type=\"image\" value=\"Login\"
name=\"loginbutton\" src=\"themes/$thename/images/loginaccount.gif\" title=\"Login to
your account.\">\n"
    ."&nbsp;<a href=\"index.php\"></a>\n"
    ."</form>\n";
    } else {
        $theuser = "&nbsp;&nbsp;Welcome $username!";
echo "<font class=\"pn-normal\"><b>Hello $username.</b></font><br />
<a href=\"modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=edituser\"><img
src=\"themes/$thename/images/editaccount.gif\" title=\"Edit Your Account\"
/></a><br />
<a href=\"account.html\"><img
src=\"themes/$thename/images/myaccount.gif\" border=\"0\" title=\"Access Your
Account\" /></a><br />
<a href=\"account-logout.html\"><img
src=\"themes/$thename/images/logout.gif\" title=\"Logout?\" /></a>";
   }
   ?>


I took out the "guest"
And had this
Code:
</tr>

</table>
<table width="100%"  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td class="login-bg" width="208"><table class="login-block">
<tr>
<td><?php  if ($username == "") {
        echo "<form action=\"account.html\" method=\"post\"
style=\"margin:0\">\n"
        ."&nbsp;<img src=\"themes/$thename/images/username.gif\"
align=\"absbottom\">&nbsp;"
    ."<input type=\"login\" name=\"username\" class=\"login\"
value=\"\"  onBlur=\"if(this.value=='') this.value='';\"
onFocus=\"if(this.value=='') this.value='';\" size=\"14\"
maxlength=\"25\" style=\"height: 14px; width: 74px;\">\n<br />"
    ."&nbsp;<img src=\"themes/$thename/images/password.gif\"
align=\"absbottom\">&nbsp;"
     
name=\"loginbutton\" src=\"themes/$thename/images/loginaccount.gif\" title=\"Login to
your account.\">\n"
    ."&nbsp;<a href=\"index.php\"></a>\n"
    ."</form>\n";
    } else {
        $theuser = "&nbsp;&nbsp;Welcome $username!";
echo "<font class=\"pn-normal\"><b>Hello $username.</b></font><br />
<a href=\"modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=edituser\"><img
src=\"themes/$thename/images/editaccount.gif\" title=\"Edit Your Account\"
/></a><br />
<a href=\"account.html\"><img
src=\"themes/$thename/images/myaccount.gif\" border=\"0\" title=\"Access Your
Account\" /></a><br />
<a href=\"account-logout.html\"><img
src=\"themes/$thename/images/logout.gif\" title=\"Logout?\" /></a>";
   }
   ?>
</td>
</tr>
</table></td>
<td background="{image-path}w-tungsten_05.jpg">&nbsp;</td>
<td width="561"><img src="{image-path}w-tungsten_06.jpg"
width="561" height="121" /></td>
</tr>


Its acting real funny now. It now shows as "Welcome guest" even though I deleted that account. I cleared my cookies to be sure. Won't let me login with any account.

Hitwalker this is one of a couple problems I am having, I have tried to import unsuccesfully my previous users from another install as well as the forums from that install. If you would be willing to help me with these three things personally I would be willing to pay you for your services. (I have Paypal) Thanks either way.

Some other code must be changing the username to Guest before it ever gets to the theme code you posted.
