I have someone creating an account without a username. How is this possible?

I have a screen shot.

Thank you for the support.

    Are you using ProxyConnect or any other addons?

    I have started do getting them too after upgrade to 2.0.15. And yes, I'm using ProxyConnect along with many other addons.

    This happens to me randomly sometimes too. It started after installing ProxyConnect for Wordpress. When logging out it asks if I "really want to sign out of" my Wordpress blog, then it redirects me to the wordpress login page.

    Then when I go back to Vanilla, I am signed in as a user with no name.

    In my case I had to simply disable proxyconnect to resolve the issue.

    Well what if ProxyConnect is the reason why you chose Vanilla as your forum software?

    It just happened to me again, this time without the redirect to the wordpress page.

    Note: All of my cookie domains are the same and this happens on a seemingly random basis upon logging out

    I'm having the same problem with phantom users... including myself! How can I disable the proxyconnect plugin by remote so I (and my other users) can actually log in? I've tried renaming the plugins folder and etc, but that gives you bonk errors.

    @Fastkarate You will need to edit /conf/config.php and delete everything that has "proxyconnect" in it. Also make sure you set $Configuration['Plugins']['ProxyConnect']['Enabled'] = TRUE; to FALSE. Save your config.php file and check your forum.

    After that you may need to manually delete all the ghost users via the admin control panel.

    I hope this helps you. :)

    Back up your original config.php file before editing it.
