Hyperlink to webshop Admin page only works for the first time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    First of all, thanks for reading it!

    We are using a webshop system (a Hungarian development, called "Shoprenter"), and also using MS Access 2007 as our backoffice database, (under Windows 8.1), containing all products, stock data, orders, customer data, etc.

    We used to link directly to a certain order in our webshop admin system with the following link (URL) from within Access:

    "https://www.kartyabolt.hu/admin/index.php?route=sale/order/update&order_id=8229"

    It worked fine until recently the webshop developers have changed something in the system, and now such links are only working for the first time when we are still NOT logged in to the Admin system. The URL in the browser address line this case changes to:

    "https://www.kartyabolt.hu/admin/index.php?route=common/login&redirect=sale%2Forder%2Fupdate|order_id=8229" , then we enter our login details, and it directs to the required Admin/Order page fine. But any further similar links (to other order pages) do not work while we are logged in, but lead to changing the URL to below format:

    "https://www.kartyabolt.hu/admin/index.php?route=common/home", which is not the actual order page, but the Admin main page.

    We of course asked the webshop developers why it works only once, but they couldn't give an appropriate answer, as they are not familiar with Access, and they told this problem should be an Access related one.

    So, my main questions are these: might there really be a reason for a Hyperlink only working once, or should I change anything when forming the Hyperlink to make it always leading to the actual order page?

    Thanks in advance,

    Peter

  • What happens in your own web browser, without involving Access at all, if you enter first one page link (when not logged in), get redirected to the login page, login and get redirected to the order page, and then enter another page link in the same format as the first one you entered?
