Did you figure out what exactly is the reason that it runs on a remote server but refuses to do so on a local one?

When the plugin tries to set the cookie, it uses the optional domain parameter — and there is the problem. A domain, like localhost really isn’t a valid domain, and all the major browsers, expect Opera, do check if the suplied optinal domain follows the valid format sub.domain.tld.

When the localhost is used as the optional domain, it doesn’t work as the format doesn’t match.

There are couple of methods to fix the issue:

  • Edit ign_password_protect’s code so that it doesn’t use the domain parameter (remove all instances of ign_getDomain() or change the function to return nothing).
  • Set the cookie manually without a domain.
  • Edit the virtual localhost to accept/use localhost.dev or any other local domain that follows the standard format.

Re: ign_password_protect

Thanks a lot, Jukka! No, it’s enough to know why this happens. I can set up a test install on my external web server and fiddle there.

Re: ign_password_protect

I found that I had to fiddle around with virtual hosts, but now I use my personal domain as a test bed – just easier.

The only thing I find is that the cookie isn’t persistent across browser sessions – you have to log in each time. I’m not good enough with cookies to figure this out, but I’ll keep playing around and see what happens.

Re: ign_password_protect

I’m having a problem getting this plugin to work. I can’t successfully log in – I always get the message “There was a problem logging in.” even when I come to the page for the first time without submitting the log in form. I’m not trying to do anything fancy – here is what I have for code:

  <txp:ign_if_logged_in>
    Content goes here...
  </txp:ign_if_logged_in>

  <txp:ign_show_login  />

I’ve tried using my user account, as well as setting up a new user with no privileges (if I understand correctly that means that the user can log in using this plugin but not into the txp admin). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: ign_password_protect

If I remember correctly I had some issues depending on the TXP versions used on that plugin. Which version are you using?

Re: ign_password_protect

I’m using 4.2.0 – If it helps I’m also using an actual server (using vhost) and not a local environment (like MAMP).

Re: ign_password_protect

Arg! I can´t remember what I did to get it working in my case. I think its not a problem of the server. I have a website here where it is working fine. 4.2 txp and 0.5b9 ign_password_protect.
All I remember is that the thing with the alternate Database was not working for me.

Re: ign_password_protect

Does anyone have experience with this plug-in and TxP 4.3?

Re: ign_password_protect

Hi GugUser,
a bit late for you, but I have it working in 4.3.0 happily. I have tested most of the tags but not all.
The alternate user database does not appear to do what it used to though, and was causing me problems – I switched it off and all was then fine.

Re: ign_password_protect

If you get the following error:

Tag error: <txp:ign_user_field name="p_userid" id="p_userid" /> -> Notice: Undefined variable: onClick on line 1464

Edit the plugin and change line 1457 from:

'onclick' => '',

to:

'onClick' => '', <—— note the capital C

Re: ign_password_protect

Great plug-in.

Is there a way to make it possible to send email to all users in the ign_db?
Thank you.
