Can't remove user.

Post by tliitts » Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:10 pm

I'm a newbie to S9Y. I've got it working, but now I want to clean up some of my poor choices when installing. The first is that I want to remove a user I created, but when I try to do that I get:

"Your browser did not sent a valid HTTP-Referrer string. This may have either been caused by a misconfigured browser/proxy or by a Cross Site Request Forgery (XSRF) aimed at you. The action you requested could not be completed."

Any pointers will be much appreciate.

I'm really confused now. Your account is ten years old. So usually, this should have meant that someone hacked a user account to spam with it.

But your post seems legit and deleting a user actually is broken also in my installation, resulting in the same error message. Did you really test s9y 10 years ago and are now trying again? :)

Are you comfortable with github and could open a bug report at https://github.com/s9y/Serendipity/issues?

Making a report on github will not be necessary, I did fix this now in https://github.com/s9y/Serendipity/comm ... 6b2ca30fa3. Should be part of the next s9y release. If you want to fix this in your blog before the release, you could copy the changes to your local files.

Thanks for the report!

Yes, I really did explore s9y ten years ago. Hey, that's just yesterday to my octogenarian mind. My previous try didn't work out, but I'm now using on one website and bringing it up on another. Works great for me, although I'm only touching the surface of it's capabilities I'm sure.
