WebsiteMembership Issue

By Perchpole - August 22, 2016

Hello, All -

I recently updated one of my sites to CMSB 3.05. At the same time i also updated WSM. However, I've noticed a few glitches which aren't working with my old code set-up.

When a user changes there password on the Profile page, the data is saved but the profile page refuses to reload. Additonally, an error message is logged in the backend:

E_USER_ERROR: setPrefixedCookie: Can't set cookie(lastUrl,, headers already sent!

Clearly there is some kind of conflict going on but I'm not sure where.

Additionally, if I try to change some of the other user details on the profile page, the backend generates the following:

E_USER_ERROR: setPrefixedCookie: Can't set cookie(loginsession, 9lTOzkTO4EzN0EjOiM3clN2YBR3chxmIsISM5cjM5Y2NjRDOyYjZ3ImYxI2M0MzMkVmY4YWNiJzN4QGNmJDZkFWOkETYoNHJiojIoNXYIRmcvd3czFGciwiIt92YuEWakVWblx2bwh2YyVGcA9mZulmI6ISZtFmbyV2c1Jye), headers already sent! Output started in /homepages/34/path line 527.

Again, the data is being saved, but the profile page refuses to reload.

Hi Perch,

Functions that send or modify the headers, ie: setcookie() which is called by setPrefixedCookie(), should be executed first before displaying any output.

So I'd check if the setPrefixedCookie() code is called before anything that displays an output.

PS: Check out this StackOverflow thread that discusses the same error for more details:

Hope this helps!
