Solved: 2 Years, 9 Months ago login Authorization code mismatch. (fixed)
Solved: 2 Years, 9 Months ago
WTF, MyBB!! Angry

Fix this ASAP!!

I can't even log onto my own website. However, I can still log onto the AdminCP.

Why wasn't this error caught before the release of 1.8.16?? Huh

Wasn't there enough testing done to assure everything was working properly?

EDIT: After 45 minutes... finally, I am able to log onto my website! It was only AFTER I applied to the fix to ALL of the themes on my website. Not just the one main theme that everyone uses. It's weird that everything worked AFTER I fixed all 3 themes.

Thanks to @drguild for providing a fix for this error.

login Authorization code mismatch. Are you accessing this function correctly? Please go back and try again.

Seems to be affecting all custom themes from what I can see, as the default theme logs in no issues.

Going to try to see what's what but will be hard.

I compared member_login template code

It's this line here doing it.
<input name="my_post_key" type="hidden" value="{$mybb->post_code}" />

It needs to be added directly under this line:
<input type="hidden" name="url" value="{$redirect_url}" />

Please change your member_login code to this now.
Or just copy the default templates member_ login code to your custom theme.

<title>{$mybb->settings['bbname']} - {$lang->login}</title>
<br />
<form action="member.php" method="post">
<table border="0" cellspacing="{$theme['borderwidth']}" cellpadding="{$theme['tablespace']}" class="tborder">
<td class="thead" colspan="2"><strong>{$lang->login}</strong></td>
<td class="trow1"><strong>{$lang->username}</strong></td>
<td class="trow1"><input type="text" class="textbox" name="username" size="25" style="width: 200px;" value="{$username}" /></td>
<td class="trow2"><strong>{$lang->password}</strong><br /><span class="smalltext">{$lang->pw_note}</span></td>
<td class="trow2"><input type="password" class="textbox" name="password" size="25" style="width: 200px;" value="{$password}" /> (<a href="member.php?action=lostpw">{$lang->lostpw_note}</a>)</td>
<td class="trow1" colspan="2" align="center"><label title="{$lang->remember_me_desc}"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="remember" checked="checked" value="yes" /> {$lang->remember_me}</label></td>
<br />
<div align="center"><input type="submit" class="button" name="submit" value="{$lang->login}" /></div>
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="do_login" />
<input type="hidden" name="url" value="{$redirect_url}" />
<input name="my_post_key" type="hidden" value="{$mybb->post_code}" />

This also breaks the login on "portal_welcome_guesttext" and isn't fixed even when using the MyBB default template.

Update your "portal_welcome_guesttext" code to this

<span class="smalltext">{$lang->guest_welcome_registration}</span><br />
<br />
<form method="post" action="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/member.php"><input type="hidden" name="action" value="do_login" /><input type="hidden" name="url" value="{$portal_url}" />
{$username}<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type="text" class="textbox" name="username" value="" /><br /><br />
{$lang->password}<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type="password" class="textbox" name="password" value="" /><br /><br />
<label title="{$lang->remember_me_desc}"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="remember" value="yes" /> {$lang->remember_me}</label><br /><br />
<br /><input type="submit" class="button" name="loginsubmit" value="{$lang->login}" /><input name="my_post_key" type="hidden" value="{$mybb->post_code}" /></form>

It's not working for my website.

I'm using the custom theme and already have implemented the suggested fixes to the templates and I can't even log into my own account.

I can log into the AdminCP with no problems, though.
Try this bro:

Reverting the templates did not work for me.
