#1 Troubling staying logged in to forum

Post by scole of TSBT »

Anyone else having trouble staying logged into the forum? Under Chome, it prompts me to log in, I enter credentials, it says I've been successfully logged in, then it redirects back to the login prompt. Under IE, I still have to log in, but once in, I stay logged in until I close IE. Wasn't sure if it was just my systems (plural) or affecting others too.

Thought I posted this in the help forum. Oh well.

I uninstalled-reinstalled Chrome. I can log in now, but if I close the tab it still asks me to sign in to the forum again. That's either a PC issue (a "loaner" laptop from my wife's IT dept which has policy crap in place. Not sure that's it, just another unkown) or maybe an issue with the cookie being returned by the website?

I was having the same problem yesterday but since I couldn't log in I couldn't post a reply.....
I've managed to get logged in just now using a different browser on my phone but I think there's still something not quite right :(

Seems to be working correctly now. I'm staying logged in.

I had the same issue under firefox, but all fine now. Must have been a clitch with the server. I'll move the topic over to the help section just because I'm nice and helpful. ( Also my OCD will kick in if we leave it in the wrong section ....shudder )

Definitely server side config or error. From what I can see it looks like the php session was started successfully and then forgotten/rejected when the next page was loaded.
