I haven't heard of this problem before - it seems like if you can successfully log in, and a session entry is successfully created, everything should work... unless, perhaps, there is a problem reading the session back out. Have you tried changing the session mechanism in config.ini? I assume you're using the database session option right now... but what happens if you switch to FileSession?

Subject: [VuFind-Tech] 'Your account' feature not working
Wondering if I missed a config setting somewhere along the way...
When I complete a user logon on my 1.0.1 install, I transfer to /MyResearch/Home. So far, so good!
Now, if click on any of the links under the Your Account menu ( like /Profile, or Your saved searches (/Search/History?require_login ) I am thrown out of the session page, and land back at the home page - Home > Your account > Login
I have tried this with accounts that I loaded into mysql directly from my ILS, and with accounts that I created through vufind.
I seem to be creating session entries OK in the vufind:session table; are there extra steps I need, to have these features work?
