hi experts,

I seem to have a login problem using sessions:

here is my Application.cfm

<cfapplication name="marketing" clientmanagement="yes" sessionmanagement="yes"
      setdomaincookies="no" setclientcookies="no">
<!--- Login check --->
<cfif not IsDefined("SESSION.Auth.IsLoggedIn")>
<cfinclude template="index.cfm">
<cfabort>
</cfif>

here is my login page:

<cfif IsDefined ("Form.user_name")>
<cfinclude template="logincheck.cfm">
</cfif>
<cfform name="loginform" action="#CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#" method="post">
      <input type="hidden" name="user_name_Required">
      <input type="hidden" name="user_pass_Required">
  <table class="thickborder" width="400" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
      <td class="logintitle">Growth Chart Marketing Campaign</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
      <td bgcolor="#D6EBFF">
<table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="4">
          <tr>
            <td width="108">Username:</td>
            <td width="276"><cfinput name="user_name" type="text" value="" maxlength="25" required="yes"
                        message="Please enter your user name"></td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td>Password:</td>
            <td><cfinput name="user_pass" type="password" value="" maxlength="25" required="yes"
                        message="Please enter your password"></td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td><img src="images/logo.jpg" width="103" height="30"></td>
            <td align="right"><input class="btnstyle" type="submit" value="submit" border="1px"></td>
          </tr>
        </table></td>
  </tr>
</table>
</cfform>

here is my logincheck.cfm page:

<cfquery name="GetUser" datasource="gchart">
select * from users
where user_name = '#form.user_name#'
         and user_pass = '#form.user_pass#'
</cfquery>
<!--- If the user info is good, create a struct and remember the user thru the session --->
<cfif GetUser.RecordCount EQ 1>
      
            <cfset SESSION.Auth = StructNew()>
            <cfset SESSION.Auth.IsLoggedIn = "Yes">
            <cfset SESSION.Auth.user_id = GetUser.user_id>
            <cfset SESSION.Auth.user_name = GetUser.user_name>
            <cfset SESSION.Auth.user_FName = GetUser.user_FName>
            <cfset SESSION.Auth.user_Lname = GetUser.user_Lname>
<!--- Send the user to the appropriate Start page depending on the credentials --->
      <cflocation url="start_page.cfm" addtoken="no">

<cfelseif GetUser.RecordCount EQ 0>
<script>
   alert("You didn't enter your information properly or you do not have access to this information");
   self.location="index.cfm";
</script>
</cfif>

I can login fine into the start_page.cfm, everything works fantastic until here..after that I have a couple of links on the start_page.cfm file, that takes them to different location, within the Application, that requires user to be logged in, or in other words, in the context of Application.cfm. But when the user clicks on the link, the login screen comes up again. When the user logs in, start_page comes back up. so I cannot get on to any other links on the start_page.

Please help. I know I'm missing something very simple. I'm not able to pass the session values to those linked pages I guess. I'm not sure.

Try changing your application page to this
<cfapplication name="marketing"
      clientmanagement="yes"
      clientstorage="cookie"
      setclientcookies="yes"
      sessionmanagement="yes"
      sessiontimeout="#CreateTimeSpan( 0,0,90,0)#"
      applicationtimeout="#CreateTimeSpan(0,5,30,0)#"
>

<!--- Login check --->
<cfif not IsDefined("SESSION.Auth.IsLoggedIn")>
<cfinclude template="index.cfm">
<cfabort>
</cfif>

I tested this on my webserver and it worked just fine
