Hey
Today i stumbled across a bug in the modsonline forums which allows a topicstarter to unlock his own topic after a mod/admin has closed the topic.

The bug can be reproduced this way:
1. start a topic
2. get it closed down
3. Note the id of your topic (looks like 156353)
4. Go to the following url:
Code:

http://modsonline.com/index.php?mod=Forums&file=user&op=solv&id=156353

Your topic will now be marked as solved.
The unsolve button will now appear
5. Click the unsolve button
6. Topic is now unlocked again.

Good luck fixing this :)

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
Can I ask how you discovered this? In other words... has it been previously abused to your knowledge?

I don't foresee an issue in solving this. It's one of the easier to solve issues I've seen this year. [thumbs_up]

Well, i wanted to somehow reopen the thread in the cod2 general section "i quit" (i reopened it to test this) and i remembered how you could close your own threads by marking it solved.

Finding it locked by an admin threw some difficulties in this assignment, so i copy-pasted a url from another thread i created (the mark_solve url) and marked the thread solved. Wanting to unsolve it using the same way, i was surprised that the button suddenly did appear :)

PS: thread is still open :P

solved. ;)

If a topic is locked, now only a moderator can unlock it.
A topic marked as solved is automatically locked.
Therefore, if you mark your topic as solved and want to change it back, you must ask a moderator to do it for you.

Yes there are more elaborate solutions that could have been applied here, but not when I'm at the height of my work season. This solves the immediate issue at hand.

Thank you for reporting it.
