XF 1.2 This action is available via POST only


Well-known member
I have a friend in Germany who was not able to register for my xenforo site for some reason (registration kept kicking him back when he clicked Finish), so I registered him manually. Now, however, he tried to log in and tells me this happens:

First he said:

This time, when I tried to log in, I received the message "Cookies are required to log in to this site. You will not be able to login until they are accepted."

As I allow cookies, I really have no clue what the problem is, but I'm close to giving up.

Then he said:

I played around with my anti-spam software and browser cookie settings, so it should really work now, but still...when I try to log in, I get the message "This action is available via POST only. Please press the back button and try again."

Any ideas? Thanks.

It looks like his browser isn't passing the relevant content back to the server when he visits a page or performs an action.

Has he tried using another browser, and/or disabling his anti-vius/spyware/browser addons?

If he is getting that error, the browser isn't using POST method to submit the data. Did you happen to test it yourself?

Hmm. I've seen several other threads on this topic now, but I cannot nail down a solution. Where should I look?
I'm currently in Berlin as well. If you think it's a location issue, you can send me example credentials via pm. However, I strongly assume it's an individual problem of your friend's browser settings.
