Ticket #13557 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 6 years ago

Last modified 6 years ago

Cannot select "My Account" when logged in; can't change my password

Reported by: gwhitney@… Owned by: wsiegrist@…
Priority: Low Milestone:
Component: server/hosting Version:
Keywords: account password Cc: gwhitney@…


I can log in to the Macports Wiki fine, and then I am able to edit pages (for example I just created my personal profile to get rid of that nasty ? on the Developers page), but if I select "My Account" I receive the following error message:

You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

In particular I am not able to change my password, or at least I haven't figured out how to -- I assume it would be on the "My Account" page. I would like to be able to change the password to be more memorable to me. If there is nothing else on the My Account page that I should have access to, then that button should be eliminated and a "Change Password" button should be added. If there is content on the "My Account" page that I should be able to access, then the permissions should be adjusted to allow access. Thanks.

I marked this as low priority since there's nothing I urgently need to do that I'm being prevented from doing, but the situation is a bit irritating.

Reclassifying this ticket as server/hosting, as it seems to be related to our Trac/wordpress installation.

This problem should be fixed for everyone now. Can you please confirm it fixed or let me know you're still having problems?

Logged in, immediately selected "My Account", got a nice-looking page and filled in my real name and the bio sketch and changed my password, which succeeded. The only oddity is that when I was done, I clicked the "View Site" link, which did take me back to the content, but in a logged-out state, which was counterintuitive. But that would really be a different issue, but not one I'd find worth filing a ticket for. So I'd recommend closing this ticket as fixed. I'm not doing it myself since I think that should be handled by whoever the ticket's assigned to.

Thanks for the quick and successful response! -- Glen

The staying-logged-in issue is more cookie problems which we are working on.
