[Solved] user names crossing #11
Hi.

This last info about changing user on logging points to a Joomdle problem, instead of Moodle's.

I tried to replicate your scenario with current code, and the problems does not happen:
- Created 2 accounts, with usernames "abc" and "abc def".
- When I log in trough Joomla with "abc def", and go to Moodle, I am correclty logged in as "abc def"

So, first thing I would do is to update to Joomdle R0.6, to see if that solves the problem.

That involves uninstalling joomdle and then installing again, right? I can't do that with a class in progress, unfortunately. Will have to wait for a session break. I will keep you posted. Thanks.

Hi.

You no longer need to do that. You can install Joomdle on Joomla over existing one, and it will respect your configuration.

On Moodle side, just replace moodle folder by new one. Config is also kept.

Hm. Okay. I'll look at the site and choose a quiet moment. (Shaking with nerves...)

If I had concerns about upgrading, I would set up a local copy first to try to replicate the problem with a clean joomla/moodle/joomdle 0.52 install, and then upgrading it to 0.6 to see if it solves the problem.
This way you get to test the upgrade and can know beforehand if it is going to really solve your problem.

The upgrade went very smoothly. However, it doesn't fix it. Here's what I'm seeing:
In Joomla User Manager, this is what I created:



When I log into Moodle, I see this:


(Note that they are switched who is logged in.)

Then I decided to capture Joomdle:



I left that funny x user up there because I've been meaning to ask -- what is that?

Hi.

As I cannot replicate the problem, maybe there is something we are doing differently.

I log into Joomla, then open another window and manually open Moodle. Are you using any links to reach Moodle?

As for the X: I think this may come from a user creation made when configuration was not complete.

So, I can safely delete the x?


I am using a link from Joomla to moodle. It is Joomdle->mycourses.

I'm really hoping I haven't messed up the site somehow.

Can you test doing like i do? Directly opening a window without using any links, to see if you get the same behaviour.
