I have a login box on a sidebar on the website I'm working on. Normally, there's no problem there. However, when I try to login to the same website using the same credentials on a mobile device, the login just won't work. After clicking "Login", it just goes back to the login page.

The login steps for the desktop and the mobile are not the same though. For the desktop, it's the login box I mentioned above. For the mobile version, it's a link to the "Login form" that I put on the navigation menu.

I thought they ran on the same engine but logging in on a mobile device just won't work. I don't know where to start looking for the solution or what I did wrong. Help, please.

  • It sounds like you're using the login module for desktop and the login component for mobile. Maybe compare the settings you have in the module with those set by the log-in menu item. Settings can also be adjusted in the administrator - > User Manager - > Options. – AndyGaskell Apr 19 '16 at 12:11
  • @AndyGaskell I used the provided login module for the desktop version. As for the mobile version, as I've mentioned, it's the "Login form". As in, I was gonna add a custom link (to the login page) but then I found "Login form" in the categories and used that instead. Does that matter? I don't suppose it should because the link looks the same as what I would've added manually. Thanks for the tip, by the way. I'll be checking those out and updating with the results. – Jae Apr 21 '16 at 8:06
  • @AndyGaskell So, I tried comparing the login module and the login component but the problem would be... Where is the settings for the login component? I don't find it listed under components. Also, which options was I supposed to edit via the User Manager? Nothing seems off... – Jae Apr 22 '16 at 7:46
