Hi Guys,

I've been searching for a while now trying to find a solution for this issue...

I'm not sure what it could be and i've read a whole heap of stuff on this very site like Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! or Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! and numerous others, but no one seems to have the exact same problem i'm having!!

I log in through admin.php and i get the admin CP, all looks well, however i notice on the top left, it does not say "Welcome user!" it says "login or register"

next, i check the Who's online and it shows me loads of guests - right now there is only me on the site and i think everytime i load a page it increments the number of guests for some reason!

I do not see any members logged in - even though i am supposed to be logged in, i can see all the admin CP and menus etc...

next if i click on "Your Account" it takes me to the login page for normal users?!

Finally, if i try to change the messages for example to deactivate one of them, i click save and it reloads the page but the setting has not changed.

I know this has something to do with the sessions, however this is a fresh install, no upgrade, only thing i did differently was after DB was created, i imported data from an old forum (used to be phpnuke 6.5) but i did not do an Upgrade - it was fresh install with just the data in the tables being moved across (users, topics, posts, privmsgs, etc...)

Please help!

Thanks

That would seem to be normal behaviour. The 'Welcome [username]' is derived from detecting a logged in user account not an admin account.
A normal user account and an admin account are different.

You should only see this at the bottom of the forums and is a bug with the forums code. I do not think a permanent fix was ever established for this weird behaviour.

Are you logged in as a normal user or an admin?

Yes thats correct. What behaviour were you expecting?
Were you already logged in as a normal user (not an admin)? If thats the case then you have a cookie issue.

Don't forget that the tables structure is different between these two versions, I suspect this is where the problem is.
Did you just over write your exisiting files or delete them before installing this version? I ask because the admin files structure was changed significantly in 7.5

Dude... MANY MANY thanks for your reply, your response gave me a starting point for my investigation.
After examining every single table, there was a field missing in the nuke_message table called 'groups'

I put it in and voila - its working now.

As for your other responses, i gues what i thought was strange behaviour was indeed normal behaviour while logged in as an admin, beacuse when i login as a normal user it works perfectly - so it wasnt a cookie or session issue after all.

Thanks again for your help!!!
