#2297 [4089] Wrong faqlist after session timeout

On a site with several GEDCOMs, visitors of the non-default GEDCOM get the faqlist for the default GEDCOM if they ask for the faq and the session lapsed, confusing users.

It can be fixed by having the corresponding link in class_menubar.php include explicitly the current GEDCOM.

    I guess this should also apply to other items in the menu.

     
  • Yes, it is pretty general. E.g. it happens to logout as well. The problem is that it makes difficult maintaining a community of people working on a GEDCOM and more or less oblivious to the existance of other GEDCOMS on the site, without having separate PGV installations, I mean. The idea is that, ideally, a user not wanting/needing to know about other GEDCOMs should not be exposed *obstructively* to the fact that there are more that one. PGV may be daunting enough by itself to unexperienced users to top it with ending up on the wrong GEDCOM now and then. GEDCOM-specific themes may help, but it is not practical to push that too far and it is not 100% effective anyway.

    This is not the only area that creates problems, of course.

    I wonder if some sort of path translation would not play a role in providing a nice solution.
