Mobile Login Loop


Hello everyone,

First off thank you to all the programmers of Elgg great work.

 I have what i hope is a simple question. Whenever i try and login from my smartphone (iPhone) i authenticate with my credentials but instead of redirecting to my profile, its stuck in a login loop. Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction to narrow my troubleshooting?

The odd thing is when i login from my Ipad or any notebook/laptop it works perfectly.


  • Post back *all symtoms of loop error situation --
    then can maybe figure wazzup inside there...

    Yr problem might b/c iPhone's iOS
    if thats what is accesing Elgg Site

    R U using Mark's Elgg Mobile PlugIn ?

    I have site with *no Mobile PlugIn but have noticed 
    from Google Analytics that fair % of users access 
    Plain Elgg via 'Mobile Phones' !;-)


  • What version of elgg are you using? What version of elgg mobile plugin? What theme are you using?

  • I'm using Elgg Ver., not using any mobile plugin, and my theme is purity. My symptoms are i just cant pass authentication from any smartphone. Being I'm new, perhaps i should be looking at a log somewhere? The OS I'm using is ubuntu server 11, you can also view the symptom by visiting my site with a smartphone.

  • little nudge, any ideas? suggestions?
