This page is only relevant if you installed the 2.0.14 update or installed 2.0.14 directly and started having problems with users logging into your forum.

SMF 2.0.14+ now requires the a session check in the <form> for the login function. If your custom theme has a login form, such as in index.template.php, boardindex.template.php or login.template.php, you will need to modify the theme to allow the login function to work correctly. In order to modify the theme, add the following code along with the other "hidden" input types, or anywhere before the closing </form> tag in the login form.

<input type="hidden" name="', $context['session_var'], '" value="', $context['session_id'], '" />

This code is used to help increase security for SMF.
