    Thank you very much, thats exactly what i searched for.

    At helloResponsive CE i cannot find the first line of code at login.phtml

    The second part with the cart.phtml does worked fine!

      Hi @renfrst:disqus, not sure if you managed to fix your issue. What I did was to copy the login.phtml from the Base Template Files (not the theme files) copied the base file to my template file, and then modify the code from there. That fixed the Customer Login Loop for me.

    Thanks for this, worked prefect!

    Awesome! Helped me understand a relatively unknown issue within our responsive template. In my situation, our login template was correctly registering ‘formkey’, but the cart template was not, so here’s what I added to the cart to get me up and running:

    getBlockHtml(‘formkey’) ?>

    Thanks for the code!
