does not autologin based on IP (5 posts)

    I have set up a UAM group to login automatically as a subscriber based on IP address. When I go to the site from the appropriate IP address, it does not login automatically and I am unable to see any of the hidden posts

    If I login as a subscriber (under a defined subscriber user account), I am able to view all appropriate posts.

    I am using UAM 1.1.2

    Any thoughts?

    Update: I think this again has to do with importing a wordpress 2.9.x file into a version 3. I was able to reproduce the problem on a second server but only once I imported the 2.9 file into the version 3 WP install.

    I'm going to do a fresh install and copy the 31 posts by hand. I'll let you know if there are problems.

    Very strange. It seems that something is missing at the imported posts. Could you look at the database and look what's different?

    Okay,I've narroed down the problem. ( I've just done a complete delete and re-install of WP 3.0.1. there are no other plugin installed.) The auto-login via IP address seems to work correctly but the settings don't work correctly.

    If I am at the IP address that should autologin, WP will not show any of the hidden posts. However,I am able to view hidden pages - which leads me to believe autoloin by IP is working. those pages then get hidden if I am at a differnt IP address.

    I've narrowed down the problem to one setting - "Hide complete posts". The option "Hide complete posts" when set to "yes" hides all posts all the time on the client side even if I am at the set IP address that should auto login. the only time the poasts will show is if I login with user/pass. I can also get posts to show if I turn "Hide complete posts to No" (but leave "Hide post title" and"Hide Comments" to "Yes".) When I have "Hide complete posts to No" the post title/post comments show correctly when at the set IP address and display the hidden text when at a different IP address.

    Hopefully I explained myself well enough. Very weird. any thoughts?

    Should be fixed with the new release.
